Defective Product Document

What are the options for people injured by defective products?

Consumers can be injured by every day products they normally use. Victims of dangerous or defective products can end up with physical injuries, which can sometimes be disfiguring and debilitating. Victims may also suffer emotional trauma and financial challenges, so injured victims may wonder about legal options and help after they have suffered a product liability injury.

One type of legal protection for victims, which is available in nearly every state, is a strict liability claim. A strict liability product liability claim provides the option for an injured victim, such as the purchaser of the product or another user of the product, to bring a claim against the manufacturer that sells a defective or dangerous product. A strict liability product liability claim can be brought against a number of different parties, including the parties that designed, manufactured and sold the product, as well as some other parties in certain instances.

Strict liability means that the injured victim is not required to prove that the manufacturer was negligent which is, in general, the typical standard for personal injury claims. The injured victim is only required to prove that the product was defective. When a victim has been injured by a product, it is important to retain evidence of the harm, such as the product or product parts, depending on the circumstances. It can also be helpful to take pictures and make a written record of the incident. In addition, retain the name of the manufacturer and model number and serial number for the item, as well as any packaging, instructions or receipts for the product.

Individuals injured by dangerous or defective products may be able to receive compensation via a strict liability claim, but depending on the circumstances, there may be additional options available for restitution. It is important for injured victims to stay informed, holding guilty parties responsible and ensuring fair compensation.
