Consumers rely on safe and effective products. Whether it be cribs, carseats and toys, or cars, appliances and machinery, the American public depends on companies to design and manufacture its products with safety in mind. Unfortunately, terrible accidents do happen on occasion. When catastrophic accidents occur because of products that are improperly designed or constructed or, when a manufacturer fails to warn consumers about hidden dangers that could cause severe injuries or death, an attorney experienced in the nuance of product liability law is critical.
Product liability claims and lawsuits against manufacturers and retailers are difficult to maintain. To be successful in product liability lawsuits, experts in engineering or other specialized areas must be retained to testify about the defects in the design or construction of the product. Accordingly, when someone is injured by a product, it is important that they start pursuing their claim as soon as possible.
