The homes of most Americans are filled with countless consumer products, most of which are safe and useful. Unfortunately, it is possible for dangerous products to make it into the homes of consumers as well and cause serious injuries when used. Mistakes are sometimes unavoidable, but when a company knowingly releases a product without properly testing or inspecting it first, a personal injury attorney could work to hold them liable if its product injures a consumer. If you were hurt by such a product, a Metairie defective products lawyer may be able to help you hold the manufacturer liable. Call and schedule an appointment with a caring personal injury attorney to begin discussing your potential legal options.
Most product manufacturers do a great job of ensuring the products they release and market are safe to use. These companies subject their products to extensive testing and hold themselves to the highest standards. Unfortunately, it is still possible for such companies to accidentally release a dangerous or defective product to the public.
In general, products can be dangerous to consumers for a flaw in its design, manufacture, or packaging. Typically, packaging defects—also referred to as marketing defects—involve the manufacturer failing to warn a product’s users of any potential dangers posed by the product. Such a warning should be placed in an easy-to-find location on the product itself or on its packaging, and many manufacturers use bright colors to grab the attention of consumers.
If a person is harmed by a defective consumer product, they may be able to obtain compensation for their pain and suffering with the help of a Metairie defective products lawyer. They may also be entitled to compensation for their medical bills and everyday living expenses.
When evaluating defective product cases, civil courts usually first seek to determine if the consumer used the product as it was intended to use. Consumers may not be entitled to compensation if they used a product in a dangerous or unauthorized manner and were hurt as a result.
Medical devices, such as pacemakers, crutches, and surgical tools save lives and make the lives of millions easier each year. Unfortunately, faulty medical devices, like other defective products, can cause serious injuries and take lives as well.
Unlike most products on the market, medical devices are closely monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which requires manufacturers to rigorously test such devices before releasing them on the market. They are also required to recall devices that pose a serious threat to the health of patients.
However, many medical devices on the market have been found to exhibit dangerous properties over the years, including but not limited to:
To make matters worse, some medical device manufacturers have refused to recall their products even after they were proven dangerous. If a person is harmed or killed by a defective medical device, they—or their loved ones filing on their behalf—may have grounds for a defective product claim that a qualified lawyer in Metairie could help them construct and file.
Defective products pose a threat to all consumers, and manufacturers, retailers, and wholesale companies should take reasonable steps to prevent them from reaching consumers. If you believe your injury or condition is the result of a defective product, a Metairie defective products lawyer may be able to help you obtain compensation for your ordeal. Call today to set up a consultation and start exploring what may be possible in your case.
