When A Defective Product Lawsuit Is The Right Course Of Action
If you or someone you love was hurt by a dangerous product, you may feel angry and betrayed that such a product was put on the market in the first place. At the same time, you are likely worried about paying unexpected medical bills and getting the compensation you need to return to your normal life.
At Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante, P.C., we understand that the aftermath of a serious personal injury is frightening and confusing. That is why we have dedicated more than 60 years of legal practice to helping injury victims in Connecticut.
Do I Have A Product Liability Case?
If you were injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to payment for your medical bills, injuries, and pain and suffering. The area of law that covers these types of cases, known as product liability law, applies when a product fails, breaks, explodes or malfunctions. Manufacturers, distributors and retailers may be found legally responsible for product defect injuries.
It may be possible to bring a product liability claim if you or a loved one was injured by:
- Asbestos or other toxic materials
- Dangerous drugs or medical devices
- Defective automobile parts, including tires, brakes and seat belts
- Industrial machinery or heavy equipment in the workplace
- Toys or other children’s products
Our personal injury lawyers have helped people obtain compensation for product injuries and related costs from consumer products such as lawn mowers and other yard equipment. We have extensive experience with cases involving defective industrial and manufacturing equipment such as saws, welding torches and packaging machines.
Who Is Responsible?
Determining who is legally liable for product defect injuries requires you and your lawyer to identify the source of the danger. For example, the designer of the product may be responsible if the product is inherently unsafe by design. The manufacturer may share liability if a hazard was introduced during manufacturing or packaging. The entities responsible for marketing the product may be liable if they failed to include adequate warnings and safety information.
In the course of recovering millions of dollars for victims of dangerous products, our attorneys have developed extensive experience analyzing these cases, determining liability and holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
