Products Liability Law
Products sold to the general public should be held to the standards of quality and safety that keep purchasers safe. Defects in the design, the manufacturing, or the materials used in a product can lead to injury and even death. Any company who fails to warn consumers of any potentially dangerous aspect of their product – including its proper use – should be held accountable.
Defective products can include:
- Safety gear
- Industrial equipment
- Children’s toys
- Sporting goods
- Automobiles, airplanes, boats
- Pools & spas
- Amusement rides
- Mobile phones
The average American uses many products each day and it is of no surprise that many of these products can be considered dangerous when used improperly or when found to be defective.
Potentially dangerous products can be found at home, the work place, and public spaces. Sometimes there are multiple defective products that come off the same assembly line, like foods, supplements, and medicines. Often a manufacturer that recalls one product may need to recall a number of other products that were manufactured within the facility.
Consumers may be able to recover financial compensation from the product manufacturer or distributor through a product liability claim if they had been injured by a defective product.
While every product liability case is unique – and any compensation available to the injured is determined by the circumstances of the claim – Goldfinch Winslow can help victims pursue compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (in the case of a wrongful death case)
- Medical bills and related expenses
- Lost wages or decreased earning ability
While our defective product lawyers cannot promise specific monetary compensation, we discuss all of the possibilities you may have during the initial consultation. Goldfinch Winslow will develop a strategy for each case and advise clients regarding the costs and benefits of various approaches. Contact us today.
