Consumers should be able to expect that the products they purchase are safe when used as intended and according to directions.
The reality, however, is that thousands of people each year suffer injuries or wrongful death as a result of defective products. If you are injured by a defective product, the Las Vegas product liability lawyers at Lloyd Baker Attorneys may be able to help you pursue financial compensation or refer you to a qualified consumer class action attorney depending on the circumstances of your case.
Product designers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers have a responsibility to provide consumers with products that are free of potentially dangerous defects and contain appropriate instructions and warnings. Yet a simple act of carelessness at any point between a product’s design and sale can put consumers at risk for injury.
In product liability cases, negligence often relates to:
- Defects in the design or engineering of a product prior to production
- Faulty manufacturing or product assembly
- Product tampering or unintentional contamination that results in a risk to consumers
- Marketing flaws such as inadequate safety warnings or incomplete instructions
Examples of defective products that are commonly the focus of product liability lawsuits include:
- Motor vehicles including cars, trucks, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles
- Motor vehicle parts
- Medical devices
- Prescription drugs
- Household appliances
- Toys and recreational gear
