When you have been injured by a faulty product, contact a products liability attorney

In the United States, any company that designs, manufactures or markets a product has a legal obligation to consumers to ensure that the product is not going to injure anyone when used in its intended manner. These obligations are defined by products liability laws. If you or someone you love has been injured by a faultily designed or marketed product, speak to the products liability attorneys at Segan, Nemerov & Singer, PC today.

What is a products liability case?

Many injuries and deaths caused by defective products could have been prevented if the designer, manufacturer or marketer of the product had adhered to products liability laws. So when you have been hurt by such a product, you need the services of a personal injury lawyer to pursue compensation for your injuries.

  • Flawed or defective manufacture.If a failure or flaw in the manufacturing of a product creates a dangerous condition when that product is used as intended, the manufacturer is legally liable for any resulting injuries.
  • Flawed or defective design.Perfect manufacturing processes do not protect a consumer from unnecessary danger when a harmful flaw exists in the design of the product. A faultily designed product can cause injury, and the company responsible for that design can be held liable.
  • Failure of the manufacturer to warn.Some products can be designed and used perfectly, but still pose a threat if used incorrectly. If there is a dangerous way in which a product could be used, and the manufacturer could reasonably foresee this danger, it has a duty to adequately warn consumers.
