We all purchase and use a wide variety of consumer products on a daily basis. When we select a product, we should be able to trust that the product will be safe if it is used as intended. Unfortunately, many defective or otherwise dangerous products make it onto the market and cause injuries to consumers in Florida and across the United States.
If you have been injured by a defective or dangerous product, the law gives you the right to seek compensation from the negligent company that produced or sold the product. However, you may not know where to begin and taking on a large company can be intimidating. Attorney Benjamin Williams has the skill and experience to help you hold companies liable for their harmful products, so please do not hesitate to call Williams Law in Jacksonville today.
Almost any product has the potential to cause injuries, however, some of the most common products involved in injury claims include the following:
Household appliances — Stoves, washing machines, blenders, power tools, and other common appliances can present the risk of injury right in your own home if they are defective and malfunction.
Motor vehicles — Cars, trucks, and other vehicles have many different parts that can malfunction and cause a driver to lose control, leading to a crash. Brakes, tires, air bags, steering systems, and similar parts can cause severe accidents if they are defective.
Pharmaceuticals — Many pharmaceuticals come with warnings of potential side effects. However, some companies fail to warn of certain serious risks or sell a product that can cause dangerous medical conditions in users.
Child and baby products — Small children require many different products, all of which could be defective and cause injury to your little ones. Cribs, car seats, changing tables, toys, and more can hurt your child if they malfunction or if there are not proper warnings.
Like any other type of personal injury case, victims hurt by dangerous products must prove that their injuries occurred due to negligence.1 Companies can be negligent in several ways when it comes to selling defective or dangerous products, including:
Defective design — Products that have inherent design flaws can malfunction and this typically results in widespread recall and risks.
Defective assembly — Even if a product is designed correctly, it can be dangerous or can malfunction if it is assembled incorrectly or using inadequate materials.
Defective marketing — Certain products have inherent risks and companies are expected to warn consumers of these risks. If a product does not come with adequate warnings, the company may be found negligent if injuries occur.
If a company causes your injuries because of a dangerous product, you deserve to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
