Think for a minute about all the different products you come into contact with at home on a daily basis: food, medicines, kitchen appliances, cleaning products, furniture, electronics — and don’t forget your car! Basically, any product has the potential to cause injury. Sometimes a product just isn’t designed in a way that makes it safe. In other cases, the product is designed well but some corners were cut during the manufacturing process and the product didn’t turn out exactly the way it was supposed to.
And if a company knows a risk of injury exists if its product is used incorrectly and doesn’t warn consumers about that risk, the company’s liability may be increased when injury occurs. If you’ve been injured as a result of a defective product, save the product (or however much of it remains) and if at all possible, keep the packaging the product came in. Then call me. There is only a certain amount of time during which you have the right to claim damages as a result of a defective product, so the sooner you get in touch with me, the better!
