Have you been injured by a defective product? You need a product liability lawyer.

Every year, defective products injure thousands of Americans. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer of these products to make sure they meet legal specifications, production requirements, and do not pose a danger to users. If a company doesn’t provide appropriate warnings when a part of the product is dangerous or could cause injury to a consumer, then legal actions are both valid and necessary to help protect other consumers. If you have been injured by a defective product, call a product liability lawyer at Balkin Law Group today for a free case evaluation.

What makes a product defective?

Unfortunately, if the manufacturers of consumer products followed product liability laws the majority of defective product injuries could be prevented. In fact most of these injuries are a direct result of manufacturers:

  • Cutting costs by using substandard materials, inferior product designs, incomplete research and development, and inadequate product testing.
  • Having substandard production, assembly, and quality control procedures that result in design flaws, manufacturing defects, and poor overall quality.
  • Either not including or only including inadequate and incomplete warnings about potential health and safety hazards associated with products.
  • Suppressing knowledge about product dangers, design flaws, or manufacturing defects in an effort to gain profits, rather than protect consumers.

Why hire a product liability lawyer?

In order for you to receive the financial compensation you need and deserve, a product liability lawyer must prove that your injuries were directly caused by the negligence of another person. In this case, your product liability lawyer must definitively prove the product was inherently defective, and that a “reasonable” manufacturer should have known that the defects were there and could hurt consumers. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, a free consultation with an experienced product liability lawyer can determine if your case is valid.   If you take the initiative to seek compensation for the injuries you sustain from defective products, you are not only receiving the reparations you deserve, you are protecting other consumers. Your product liability lawyer will help you do that.   The only way to get corporations to improve substandard products is for enough people to speak up and take legal action. Unfortunately, for many corporations, money talks much louder than people do.  Much of these quality control cuts are done as an attempt to increase profits. Letting corporations know that dangerous defective products will cost them more in lawsuits than they would gain from cutting costs will give them a huge incentive to get things right before they release their products to the market. A product liability lawyer can help you understand your rights.
