The law states that manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers must meet certain standards to ensure the safe use of their products. Defective products can cause serious injuries for which those who made or sold the product may be legally responsible. This area of law is called “products liability” and covers the full spectrum of products such as medical devices and implants, food, drugs, automobiles, appliances, toys, tools, and machinery.
A defective product is any product that is proven unreasonably dangerous for its intended use. Products may be defective because of a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or the failure to properly warn consumers of possible hazards. When someone is injured or killed by such a product, the law says they or their family are entitled to compensation from the manufacturer and others in the “chain of commerce” such as wholesalers and retailers. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, you should contact us immediately to protect your legal rights to a monetary recovery.
