We trust products to work as intended and to do so safely. It is when a product that is used correctly malfunctions and causes injury or death that a simple manufacturing mistake or a mistake in the instructions for intended use can become a major issue.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed due to a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other applicable costs. It is your right to hold the manufacturer, distributors, and any other responsible parties accountable so you can move on past the accident as much as possible.
Experienced Product Liability Lawyers
It seems like product liability issues come up often. Prescription drugs, faulty vehicle parts, and many other products have become the subject of such claims. Some of the most common types of product liability cases that have come about include the following:
- Steroid Injections
- Birth control pills and IUDs
- Automobile parts and tires
- Child safety seats
- Construction equipment
- Hip and knee implants
- Watercraft defects
- Automobile rollovers
- Faulty airbags
- Recreational vehicle defects
- Child toy defects
The list can go on and on. Perhaps the product failed when it shouldn’t have or it automatically poses a danger based on its design. There are many possibilities. When an accident is the result of the manufacturer and the other parties involved in putting the product in your hands, you have the right to file a defective product lawsuit against them.
Recovering The Compensation You Deserve
The reason why the product liability lawsuit is so important is because your insurance company may not want to pay for the medical bills due to the accident being the fault of someone else. You have to have a way to pay your present and future medical bills. You have to somehow recover the wages that you have lost or will lose. You are also entitled to other damages that have been caused so you can move on with your life. The financial stressors can impede your healing. When you have an experienced Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer by your side, you can effectively pursue the responsible parties. Your attorney will get to the bottom of what happened, why it happened, and determine who is responsible. Medical experts and records, as well as other pieces of evidence are used to determine how much compensation is needed so you can move past the matter and focus on healing.
