Defective products cause injuries to a lot of people on a regular basis. Some products sadly have caused deaths. Injuries caused by these products happen because of several reasons. Some may have not provided a warning label. Some may have flaws on their design. Others use materials which may be harmful to kids or even adults.
In case you are a victim of a defective product, your first move is to seek legal advice. You need to meet with a defective product attorney and give the details of what happened. It will also help if you can bring them an evidence to strengthen the case.
Evidence of course includes the defective product. Documents like receipt, medical certificates, laboratory results, et cetera will also help a lot with your possible case. You can also take a picture of your body part that was injured since some injuries may heal prior to filing of a case or a claim.
The defective products attorney will help you figure out if you were injured because of breach of warranty, negligence, strict liability, or misrepresentation.
Breach of warranty entails that the manufacturer has not fulfilled its promises to ensure the safety of their product.
Negligence requires you to prove that there was a certain level of carelessness on the part of the seller or the manufacturer that caused harm at your end.
Strict liability will hold either the seller or manufacturer, or both liable for a defect which they have known but not corrected before releasing the product to the market.
Misrepresentation involves the manufacturer misleading you and other consumers to think that the product is much safer that how it really is.
