Arcadia Defective Products Accident
The average consumer buys and uses hundreds of products every year. From a mobile device to a can opener, there is an expectation that the products we use will be functional and perform as intended. When a product defies these expectations and does not only not function as intended, but is also dangerous, a consumer may be shocked and unsure of their rights. If you are someone who has been harmed by using a defective product, our experienced Arcadia defective products accident attorneys can help. Reach us today to learn more.
WHAT IS A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT?
A product defect exists when a product does not perform as intended due to a design or manufacturing errors, or when a product does not contain appropriate instructions for use or information about the risks of using the product, rendering the product dangerous. Examples of defective products include:
- Tires with defective tread (increasing the risk of a tire blowout);
- Pharmaceutical drugs with dangerous/deadly side effects;
- Certain tools or equipment that lack guards;
- Appliances that lack instructions for safe use;
- Furniture that is designed in a manner where it can tip over; and
- Many more.
DO I HAVE A DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS CASE?
In order to have a defective products case, you will have to prove that the product in question has a defective (manufacturing, design, or labeling). More than this, though, you will also need to prove that you have suffered an injury and damages (i.e. medical bills) as a direct result of the product defect, and that you were using the product as intended at the time your accident occurred.
If you can prove that the product was defective and that your injuries would not have occurred but for the product defect, you can bring a claim against the responsible party. This might include the company responsible for the product’s design, the company responsible for the product’s manufacture/labeling, or any other company that was involved in the distribution process and which shares liability. For example, if a car dealer sold you a defective car and it knew that the vehicle was defective at the time of sale, then the car dealer could be held liable for your harm, even though the dealer was not involved in the vehicle manufacturing process.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
If you think that you have a products liability claim, it’s important that you meet with a lawyer as soon as possible. Not only do you want to start working on your case while evidence is fresh, but if you wait too long, you could be barred from recovery.
