Product Liability Lawyers in Connecticut

What does a product liability lawyer do?

A product liability lawyer is a legal professional who specializes in representing individuals or entities who have suffered harm or injury due to a defective or dangerous product. These lawyers are responsible for seeking compensation on behalf of their clients for damages resulting from the use of a faulty product, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Product liability lawyers work to hold manufacturers, distributors, and retailers accountable for the products they sell. They investigate the product in question, identify any defects or design flaws, and determine whether the manufacturer or seller failed to warn consumers about potential dangers associated with the product.

In addition, product liability lawyers may work with experts in fields such as engineering, medicine, and product design to build a strong case for their clients. They may also negotiate with insurance companies or represent clients in court if a settlement cannot be reached.

Overall, product liability lawyers play an important role in protecting consumers from dangerous or defective products and holding companies accountable for their actions.

There are three main types of product liability claims that a product liability lawyer may handle:

Design Defects: A design defect occurs when a product is inherently dangerous or defective due to a flaw in its design. This means that every product manufactured using that design will be dangerous or defective. Examples of design defects include a car with a poorly designed gas tank that is prone to exploding in a rear-end collision or a ladder with a design that makes it prone to collapsing.

Manufacturing Defects: A manufacturing defect occurs when a product is properly designed but is defectively manufactured or assembled. This means that only some of the products made using that design will be dangerous or defective. Examples of manufacturing defects include a batch of medications contaminated during the manufacturing process or a bicycle with a misaligned wheel due to a manufacturing error.

Marketing Defects: A marketing defect occurs when a product is improperly marketed or labeled, leading to injury or harm. This means that the product itself may be safe, but the manufacturer failed to provide adequate instructions or warnings to the user. Examples of marketing defects include failing to include warning labels on a product that is potentially dangerous or failing to include proper usage instructions.

Product liability claims can be complex and involve a thorough investigation into the product, its design, manufacturing process, and marketing. A product liability lawyer can help determine the best course of action for seeking compensation for damages and holding the responsible parties accountable.

If you believe that you have been harmed or injured by a defective product, here are the steps you should take:

  1. Stop using the product: If you suspect that a product is defective or dangerous, stop using it immediately to prevent further harm or injury.
  2. Preserve evidence: Keep the product and any packaging, instructions, and receipts related to the purchase. This will be important evidence in any potential product liability claim.
  3. Seek medical attention: If you have been injured, seek medical attention immediately. Your health and safety should be your top priority.
  4. Report the problem: Contact the manufacturer or seller of the product to report the issue. You may be able to get a refund or replacement for the defective product. Additionally, reporting the problem can help prevent others from being harmed by the same product.
  5. Contact a product liability lawyer: If you have been seriously injured or if the manufacturer or seller is unresponsive, consider contacting a product liability lawyer to discuss your legal options.

It’s important to act quickly if you believe you have been harmed by a defective product. A product liability lawyer can help you navigate the legal process and work to get you the compensation you deserve. Call LRCR Law today for a free consultation.
