It is an unfortunate truth that some companies give their financial interests far more priority than the safety of the people who use their products. They may cut corners or intentionally act to hide defects just to make sales at the expense of consumers. Even if a manufacturer or distributor does not intentionally or negligently cause harm, they can still be held liable if they produce or release defective products.

What Is a Defective Product?
A defective product may be described as a consumer product that is faulty due to one or more of the following issues:
- Defect(s) in manufacturing
- Unsafe or defective design
- Improper marketing or false advertising
- Lack of proper instructions for use
- Lack of adequate product warning labels
Depending on which of the above defects was involved in your case, your claim will either cite the product manufacturer, designer, retailer, or distributor as the liable party.
Tackling the Details of a Product Liability Claim
In today’s world, almost everything is a product, from our food to our medicine, to electronics, toiletries, and more. As such, product liability claims vastly differ from one another based on the items they are filed over.
Should I Hire a Product Liability Attorney?
Product Liability cases are some of the very difficult and expensive cases to litigate. Corporations will often spend huge sums of money to defeat your claim. If you think you have been injured by a defective product you should call an attorney immediately for assistance in preserving the evidence. Statistically, hiring an attorney as early as possible increases the likelihood of success in these difficult cases.
How Much Is My Product Liability Case Worth?
The value of your case depends entirely on the damages you incurred. The more severe your injury, the more damages that you are likely to suffer in the form of medical expenses, missed time from work, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. Thus, it is difficult to give an exact valuation of your case.
