A product liability lawyer can help people who have been injured by dangerous and defective products. When a consumer purchases a product, he or she rightfully expects that product to perform safely without fear of injury or death. However, when a product causes injury due to a defect or because it is unreasonably dangerous, injured parties may be eligible to seek compensation with the help of a product liability lawyer

What is Product Liability?
When a dangerous and defective product causes harm to someone who is using the product as intended, the manufacturer, the supplier and the retailer may potentially be held liable for an injury caused by the product.
Defective products may be found at home and in the workplace and may include:
- Infant and child safety seats
- High chairs
A seller of a product must provide a warning if any part of its product is unsafe or if using the product in a particular way could be hazardous to the user’s health or safety. Many deaths and injuries that result from defective products could be avoided if manufacturers designed their products better and properly warned consumers of the dangers associated with said products.
Those who have been injured may be eligible to work with a product liability lawyer and receive compensation for their damages if they can prove that the product was already dangerous when it left the manufacturer’s possession and that they did not receive prior warning indicating the risk of unreasonable danger.
In an injury or death that results from the defective design of a product, consumers working with a product liability lawyer will allege that the product functioned as it was designed but the design itself was unsafe. In other words, the manufacturer should have known that the product was inadequately designed and that it was foreseeable that the product would result in injury or death. Once a hazard is identified, the engineer is obligated to redesign the product in an attempt to reduce the possibility of injuries or death.
If it is unable to redesign the product without destroying the utility of the product, then the manufacturer must guard against the dangerous condition of the product. If this is not possible, then the company is required to provide a warning to the consumer so that he or she is aware of the risk and subsequently transfers blame to himself or herself should an injury or death occur.
How a Product Liability Lawyer Can Help
Product makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a product maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by the fault of others may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
