Defective Products Do You Know Your Rights?

Injuries from Defective Products

Product Liability Lawyers in St. Francis County

No one expects to be hurt when they use a product the way it was intended. However, things can go wrong in the design, testing, manufacturing, or even transportation process, creating a defective product. It is an unfortunate fact that many people are seriously injured by a number of products every year.

If you’ve been hurt by a defective product, it is in your best interest to file a personal injury claim for compensation. This can help you with medical expenses or lost wages while you struggle to get back on your feet. The personal injury lawyers at Easley & Houseal, PLLC can guide you through the often complicated process of filing a claim.

What Is a Defective Product?

Every year thousands of products are found to have serious defects or be unsafe and are recalled by either the manufacturer or a government agency.

A defective or unsafe product might have any of the following issues:

  • There was a flaw in the product’s design
  • A mistake occurred during manufacturing
  • A food item is contaminated
  • The product was made from unsafe materials
  • The product poses an unseen risk to consumers

Products can be on the market for months or even years before they are found to be unsafe, and many people can be harmed before the company issues a recall. Many people are affected by the defect before anything is done, making defective product claims an important warning to both the consumers and the manufacturer themselves.
