If you have been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. We are happy to give you professional legal counsel so that you are not left alone during this challenging time.

Defective Product Cases

Products that are discovered to be defective are not themselves liable for legal compensation. Many defective items eligible for product recall are simply returned to the manufacturer and replaced with a better product. However, when the defective nature of the product directly causes injury or death, the consumer merits a case.

Defective products fall under the legal concept of “product liability.” This means that manufacturers can be held accountable for selling defective or dangerous products to consumers that cause harm. These products can include anything marketed to the public, such as vehicles and automotive parts, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, household items, tools, machinery, appliances, children’s toys and gear, gardening supplies, food, cosmetics, and more.

What Makes a Product Defective?

You may have a defective product case if:

  • The product is proven to have been defective or did not include adequate warnings
  • You have suffered some type of injury by a defective product
  • The injury was directly caused by a defect in the product
  • At the time of the injury, the product was being used in a way that it was intended to be used

Each of these components must be examined closely to determine whether the case is valid or not. This requires acute analysis and full knowledge of personal injury and product liability laws.

Defects in products generally fall into three categories. These include defects inherent in the product’s design, in how it was manufactured or assembled, or in how it was marketed. Marketing defects could include inadequate warnings about the potential risks of using the product or missing or poor instructions about implementing it.

Many examples of defective product cases have been chronicled by the media in the past few decades. These include the faulty accelerators in Toyota vehicles, the cancer-causing formulation of Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, and heart attacks and deaths associated with Merck’s painkiller Vioxx.

Professional Legal Counsel Available

If you have suffered an injury due to a defective product or one that lacked adequate warning information, many options may be available to you. It is vital that you seek the counsel of an attorney who is experienced in these complex types of cases. Trenti Law Firm can analyze the specifics of your situation to determine if you have valid grounds upon which to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer.

You may be entitled to full and fair compensation for your past and future medical expenses, lost income or wages, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and any other damages specific to your case. Our firm puts decades of experience into every case we represent which can make a significant difference in the results you obtain.
