Types of defective products claims
When you use a product the way it was intended and you still suffer an injury, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. When you seek our help at Banks and Jones, one of the first things we do is investigate your case to determine the cause of your accident and who may be at fault. Since many parties are involved in the design, manufacturing, packaging and shipping of the product that caused your injury, proving liability can sometimes be difficult.
Our personal injury lawyers typically assist clients with the following types of defective product claims:
- Defectively manufactured products — Sometimes a product is designed in a sound and safe manner. However, defects can arise if a mistake is made or the design plan is not followed closely enough during the manufacturing process.
- Failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions — Not all products liability claims involve design or manufacturing defects. Sometimes an accident or injury results from inadequate warnings or instructions. Hazardous products must contain warning labels that describe their intended use, how they might cause harm and the steps you should take in the event that you are injured.
- Defectively designed products — In some cases, an entire product line may be dangerous because the product was poorly designed. When this occurs, countless individuals may be at risk of suffering injury or death.
When cars, trucks or motorcycles contain defects, they can cause serious auto accidents. If a defective air bag, brake or tire is responsible for your injury, our Knoxville lawyers can assist you in filing a claim against the vehicle manufacturer.
Types of damages recoverable in products liability cases
If you suffer an injury because of a defective or poorly designed product, seek experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be able to recover compensation to cover the cost of medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and loss of wages. Furthermore, if a malfunctioning product has caused the death of your loved one, you may be able to collect compensation for wrongful death, including medical and funeral expenses and the loss of future income.
