What should I do if I am injured by a defective product?
If you are hurt by a defective product, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Document as much information about the injury as possible, including taking photographs or video of your injury and details on the situation in which your injury occurred. Contact the Las Vegas product liability lawyers at Lloyd Baker Attorneys as soon as possible following your injury. We can advise you on your legal options and, if necessary, refer you to an experienced consumer class action attorney.
How do defective products reach consumers?
Although federal agencies such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration exist to help protect consumers from unsafe products and dangerous medications, the ultimate responsibility for the safety of goods is generally with the product designer, manufacturer and/or vendor. Product liability lawsuits are usually the result of:
- Product design or engineering defects
- Faulty manufacturing or assembly
- Product tampering or contamination
- Marketing flaws such as inadequate safety warnings or incomplete instructions
What damages can I recover compensation for in a product liability case?
Depending on the defective product and your individual circumstances, the Las Vegas product liability attorneys at Lloyd Baker Attorneys may be able to help you recover money for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, scarring and disfigurement, and any resulting property damage.
What if a family member is killed by a defective product?
Sadly, many defective products-from faulty auto parts to dangerous pharmaceuticals result in fatalities. If a loved one died as the result of a defective product, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
