When most people think of personal injury accidents, they often think of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, or slips and falls. What they may not realize is that many such accidents are caused by defective products. Automobiles, household appliances, and consumer products of almost any kind can cause injury in the event of a malfunction.
Common cases include but are not limited to the following:
- Brake failure
- Blown tires
- Power tool malfunctions
- Appliance fires
- Faulty wiring
- Defective medical devices
- Defectively manufactured drugs/medications
When products like these and others prove to be defective, they could cause serious injury and property damage. Brake failure could result in a wreck with brain injury or spinal cord injury. Faulty wiring or appliance fires could escalate to a house fire and cause severe burn injuries. Cases involving medical devices or drugs could cause internal damage or illness requiring extensive medical treatment to fix.
Seek Compensation for Defective Products
Manufacturers and distributors of a defective product will do everything in their power to avoid liability. If the product was no longer under warranty, they may use that as an excuse. They may attempt to blame you by saying you failed to use the product properly. There have even been cases where they tried to deny that your injuries were even caused by their product at all.
When you are building your case, you will need to focus on the evidence to have a rightful claim. Otherwise, it could boil down to your word against theirs.
