Dangerous or Defective Product Lawsuit – Find Out If You Have a Claim
When you spend your hard earned money on a product, you expect it to be safe and reliable. But this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, products can be defective and harm or injure a consumer. When this happens, the product manufacturer needs to be held accountable. If products are dangerous or defective, there are a number of people who breached their duty of care to the consumer, from the manufacturer to the store that sold the product.
To prove this, you must show that:
- The product was dangerous of defective
- You were injured while using the product
- The product was the cause of your injury
- Whether it is a car with a safety defect or food that caused food poisoning, faulty products are harmful and dangerous. At Eden Rafferty, we can help figure out who is responsible, how wide-ranging the issue is, and how much compensation you deserve. We have lots of experience with product liability cases.
Would A Product Liability Class Action Lawsuit Be Filed?
A product liability class action lawsuit is when there is a group of people who have the same or similar injuries from the same product. There are many different factors that would determine whether a case would be a class action or an individual lawsuit. If the awarded compensation would be nominal for each individual and it makes more economical sense to file a class action, then that would happen. But if a personal injury was great enough to warrant a large compensation or if an individual has suffered unique injuries, then we would proceed in a single action product liability lawsuit.
Who Is Held Liable For Dangerous Or Defective Products?
When you file a lawsuit for a defective or dangerous product, you can seek compensation from multiple parties. You can file against the manufacturer of the complete product or the defective part, as well as the retailer who sold the product. When a retailer advertises a product for sale, that means they believe it is safe. If it isn’t safe, the retailer is held responsible.
