Every business that places a product on the market has a clear duty to ensure that it is safe. This duty extends to the design of the product, to the way it is manufactured and to warn consumers about the risks of using it. When manufacturers and retailers sell products that do not meet these standards, the law provides a remedy for injured consumers.
Many different types of consumer products have been found to be defectively designed or manufactured. From faulty car ignition switches to defective medical devices and pharmaceuticals, dangerous products may cause serious, life-altering injury, and even death. A products liability claim is a means of obtaining compensation for your injury and also holding the manufacturer and seller of the product accountable.
