Defective products can range from the smallest children’s toys, to electrical equipment, even to automobiles. Even when used appropriately, these products may malfunction, resulting in serious injury. In other cases, products are poorly labeled without sufficient warnings or instructions. Sometimes products are unsafe to begin with, and the end result can be catastrophic.
Some examples of defective consumer products include:
• Electrical Equipment and Power Cords
• Defective Tires
• Defective Seatbelts
• Motor Vehicles
Often defective products are recalled. Unfortunately, these recalls tend to happen only after injury has occurred, even though the manufacturer may have known or had the data to know of the product’s likely danger. Even if a product has not been recalled, you have a right to seek compensation for damages caused by a defective consumer product.
When you are injured by a defective product, it can be difficult to determine who is liable. Responsibility for the product often lies with the manufacturer. However, other responsible parties may include distributors, suppliers, retailers, and government entities. With so many potentially responsible parties, it can be difficult to know where to begin seeking compensation in these cases.
