Protecting yourself from harmful product defects

| Apr 26, 2015 | Products Liability |

Defective products pose quite a problem. They cannot be detected until something goes wrong. There is no way to tell if you are the recipient of a defective product until it is too late. Because of that, you may have received mild to severe injuries due to product defects or even inadequate labeling.

There are many different ways of handling a court case in which you were injured by a product defect. That was not always the way things were. In the past, “caveat emptor” reigned supreme. This is the infamous “buyers beware” notion. It meant if you were injured by a product, it was up to you to deal with that injury and the company would not be held responsible. These days, if you have an injury, you are able to pursue your case in court and get the compensation that you deserve.

However, there are several requirements that must be met in order for you to have a solid case. You must be able to prove several things, including that you were using the product as intended when you were injured. You must be able to show that there was a defect or that there were not adequate warning labels. You must also prove that the injury you suffered from did indeed come from the product. The defect must have existed before the product became yours as well.
