Have you been the victim of a significant product defect that left you with unnecessary pain, suffering and injuries?
If so, know that you are not alone.
Many individuals are aware of the product liability surrounding prescription drugs, but almost any defective product can be the basis of a product liability lawsuit.
Motorcycles, computer hardware, cooking products and even children's toys can become product liability lawsuits when unnecessary and significant harm results. While this list is far from exhaustive and there are many product liability claims that cannot be encompassed with a general overview of this practice area.
There are several ways a product liability lawsuit can succeed.
If a product had a manufacturing defect or design defect that caused your injury, you will have a strong product liability lawsuit in most cases.
However, you can even file a lawsuit if a product did not properly prevent injury as it was intended.
For example, imagine you purchase a toy for your child that, for all intents and purposes, appears safe. If that toy in fact had sharp edges and it was used to injure your child's eye or cause some other significant injury to your child, this can be grounds for litigation. In these instances, you will need to prove that there was an alternative design choice available that could have been implemented that would prevent such unnecessary injuries and harms.
