Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of commercial products have a responsibility to ensure that any product used by consumers is reasonably safe for its intended use. When they make or sell unsafe products, people can be seriously injured. According to statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 30 million people are injured every year due to defective products.
Portland Product Liability Attorneys Can Help You Receive Compensation
There are laws to protect consumers by ensuring that the parties involved in the manufacturing, distributing and selling of commercial products are held liable for the damages caused by their unsafe products by product liability attorneys. Products are generally determined to be defective in one or more of the following areas:
- Design Defects: The design of the product is unsafe, so it can be assumed that the entire product line is unsafe. If an injury occurs as a result of a poorly designed product, then the parties responsible for the product can be held liable for design defects.
- Manufacturing Defects: The product may be well-designed, but the way in which it was made causes it to be unsafe. An example would be if a product does not meet the manufacturing specifications and causes injury as a result.
- Insufficient Instructions or Warnings: If a product does not contain proper warnings or instructions for safe operation and someone is injured as a result, a consumer may be entitled to damages based on this defect.
If you or a close family member has been injured as a result of a defective product, you will want to preserve the evidence and consider filing a products liability lawsuit. It is important to remember to keep the defective product, or any unused portion of the product.
