Harmed by a defective product? A tort action might be necessary

On Behalf of | Apr 17, 2024 | Product Liability, Tort Litigation

As a consumer, when you purchase something, you intend it to serve its purpose and work as it is intended. Thus, your vehicle should operate properly and your tv should turn on and function. Unfortunately, defects occur and make it into the stream of commerce.

Many defects are not apparent, resulting in a very unexpected injury or accident. And when such an incident occurs, it is important to fully understand your situation. If you believe your injuries were the result of a defective product, you might have legal rights and options available to you.

Defective products

While it might be difficult to spot a defective product prior to use, it is much easier to determine the defective nature of the product after it caused injury to a consumer. Whether it is a design, manufacturing or warning defect, it is important to consider all evidence surrounding the matter. This can help establish and prove cause and liability.

Filing a products liability action may be the best step to take. This civil suit seeks to hold the negligent party accountable for the defective product. Additionally, it helps the injured party secure compensation to help address losses and damages suffered. If you are unsure about this process or wondering if it is the right step to take, a legal professional can help answer those questions for you.
