Product Liability Accidents

18736482_mDefective products can cause virtually any type of accident. Car accident victims, drug injury victims, and those who are injured on-the-job are among the many who often discover that their injuries were actually caused by a defective product, and their lawsuit will fall under product liability. In some cases it is obvious, but sometimes it takes a thorough investigation by experienced accident attorneys to get to the root cause of an accident or injury.

Injured Workers

Injured workers are often limited in the amount of compensation they can receive, by Workers’ Compensation laws. Workers’ Compensation certainly has its good points, and if you are eligible, you should pursue a claim, but eligible workers are barred from suing their employers. However, if you were injured by a defective product, you can receive Workers’ Compensation benefits and still file a third-party product liability lawsuit, giving you the opportunity to truly collect full compensation for your injuries and losses.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Defects are often at the heart of car accidents, truck accidents, and other types of motor vehicle accident. In accidents caused by driver negligence, defects such as faulty seat belts can contribute to the seriousness of injuries. ATV accidents are often the result of inappropriate advertising, giving consumers the impression that the vehicles are intended to be used in ways they cannot safely operate.

Medications and Medical Devices

Injuries and death caused by defective medications and medical devices can appear to be caused by medical malpractice. Our knowledgeable attorneys can help you determine whether your case falls under product liability, medical malpractice, or both.

Premises Liability Accidents

Structure fires, elevator accidents, escalator accidents, structure collapse and other premises liability accidents are sometimes caused by, or involve, defective products. These cases can be very complex. For instance, a defective smoke detector can contribute to the escalation of a fire or to injuries and death because victims do not get the warning they need to get out, while the fire itself may be the result of someone’s negligence.
