Types of product defects and seeking compensation for an injury

Some products on the market can cause serious injuries even when they are used in the manner that they are intended. In some cases, the people who are harmed by these products might choose to seek compensation for the injuries they suffered. Think about the horror of having a child injured by a defective baby bed or the pain of having a finger sliced by a malfunctioning power tool. Those are only two examples of defective products that can cause injuries.

One of the factors that we have to determine when we file a lawsuit about a defective product is what type of defect was present. There are three types of defects to consider -- defects in design, defects in manufacturing and defects in marketing. Each of these encompasses a different aspect of product liability. We can review your case to determine which type of defect was present in your case.

It is important for you to know that even if you weren't using a product exactly as instructed, you might still opt to seek compensation if you were using the product for its intended purpose and in a reasonably safe manner. The key to this type of case is that you had to have been acting responsibly when you were using the product and got injured.

Naturally, the first thing you need to do when you were injured by a product is to seek medical care. After that, you can get to work on your plan for seeking compensation. We can help you to understand your rights, responsibilities and options as you seek compensation.
