As a consumer, you don't buy a product with the idea that it could cause an injury or illness. Instead, you make the purchase with hope and assumption that the product is safe to use in the intended manner.
Unfortunately, this is not always the way things work out. There are times when a consumer is injured or becomes ill after using a product.
In the event that you suffer an injury as the result of a defective product, it's important to do two things:
- Receive immediate medical attention
- Learn more about your legal rights
There are three primary types of product defect claims, including:
- Defects in design. An example of this is a product with a poor design that leads to a consumer injury.
- Defects in manufacturing. As the name suggests, this comes into play as the result of a defective manufacturing process.
- Defects in warnings. Depending on the product type, a warning may be required so that it's used in the appropriate manner.
At our law firm, we understand that not every product is as safe as it should be. We also know that people are often injured or become ill as the result of a defective product that should have never made its way to market. We take great pride in helping these consumers learn more about their legal rights.
The risk of buying a defective product shouldn't stop you from living your life, however, you do need to understand that trouble could come into play at some point. If it does, don't wait to receive medical attention and to learn more about what went wrong.
