Product liability lawsuits, which refer to when a consumer product has harmed a victim or number of victims, can be substantial and why it is important to understand how to properly manage them. Our law firm understands that there can be a number of victims and a number of parties responsible for the harm the victim has suffered. The manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor and retailer of a defective or dangerous product may all be liable to the victim for their injuries or other harm the victim, and victim's family, have suffered.
It can be helpful for consumers and companies engaged in the consumer products business to understand how to help prevent products liability lawsuits and claims. Preventative measures for companies can involve supply chain issues, product labels and packaging, warranties and insurance. When a consumer electronic, such as a microwave, child's toy, power tool or other household appliance has injured a victim, it can be helpful for both the victim and any number of companies involved in the manufacture, wholesale, distribution and sale of the item to know what to do.
For companies associated with the dangerous or defective product, understanding media messaging, government investigations and multi-jurisdictional litigation may be important concerns. Victims of a dangerous or defective product should understand that they have a reasonable expectation of safety when using a consumer product and that companies have the duty to provide safe consumer products that are properly labeled and packaged.
Our attorneys understand that class action lawsuits can be helpful tools for consumers harmed by a defective or dangerous product. However, preventative measures by companies associated with a particular product can ultimately reduce the amount of harm consumers are exposed to. Products liability law exists to protect consumers and ensure a safe consumer products industry for everyone, and our staff is very knowledgeable about these claims and have helped past clients recover compensation for injuries, damages and losses caused by a dangerous product.
