If a product has hurt you, you may be entitled to recover damages from the manufacturer, distributor, seller and/or installer of the product. Likewise, if the product, such as a car, or other device, was recently repaired, that repair may have been done negligently leading to liability for your damages.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers put profits ahead of people and do not adequately test their products for safety. They may have a design flaw that causes them to harm people who are using them like any reasonable consumer would expect. They may also be defective because of inadequate or nonexistent warnings of known risks of injury. Examples of these defects are the Ford Pinto, with its gas tank exposed to rear end collisions. Other examples are tires that blow out, lawnmowers that have no protection from shooting rocks out of the side, nail guns that fire without being depressed on wood, circular saws with no guards, baking pans that collapse under the weight of a turkey, SUV’s that have too high a center of gravity, helmets made out of plastic, defective medical products, implants and drugs, etc.
Products are sometimes defective because of their manufacturing. The design may be fine, but the manufacturing process was done negligently, causing the product to become dangerous. This often happens with food products that are not processed properly and cause the spread of disease, or introduction of foreign particles such as glass. Other examples include tires that are made with defective rubber that blow out and cause death and injury; cars that are not assembled properly that crash when wheels fall off or engines blow up; planes that crash; TV screens that explode; hot tubs that short circuit, etc.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED BY A PRODUCT, SAVE WHAT REMAINS OF THE PRODUCT AND ANY PACKAGING THAT CAME WITH THE PRODUCT IF YOU CAN. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU DO NOT DISCARD OR DESTROY THE PRODUCT, AS THAT IS EVIDENCE CRITICAL TO EVALUATE YOUR CASE.
