    What to Do If You Have Been Injured by a Product Defect

    Taking the Proper Steps

    Consumers in the United States enjoy tremendous protections against negligence. Whether a person suffers as a result of a negligent action or inaction, or because a product that they have purchased was defective, there are protections offered and compensation available to make up for the damage that has been done. In the case of those harmed by a product defect, victims are able to file a specific type of lawsuit called a product liability claim. If this has happened to you, regardless of whether the injury is a result of a poor design, mistakes in manufacturing, or a failure to provide appropriate and necessary warning or instructions to protect you, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with your injury. The attorneys at Jarve, Kaplan, Granato & Starr, LLC have a record of successfully representing those who have been injured by a product defect, and we are intent on providing you with the information that you need to make sure that you take the proper steps to preserve your rights.

    There are many people and organizations involved in bringing a product to market: these include the manufacturer of the product, its designer, those who sell the product, and even the agencies that allowed it to be sold to consumers. The basic theory behind product liability lawsuits is that those who provide products have a duty of care to the consumer, and that if you have suffered an injury as a result of that failure then you are owed compensation. The damages that you suffered can also be a result of a false representation made by the manufacturer. This is considered a breach of warranty.

    The most important step that you can take when you have suffered an injury or some type of damage as a result of a product defect is to immediately seek the guidance of an experienced attorney.
