Product liability is a vital part of lawsuits related to product related injuries. No matter how expert your injury attorney is, you must know a thing or two to tackle a product based injury case. Even the smallest product can cause big injuries of not used properly. But you can’t really get hurt by a tube of toothpaste. So product based injuries are based on some common products which we use mostly every day. Here are some brief descriptions of those.
A car with manufacturing defect can cause fatal accidents you or your surroundings. Not everything is flawless. Even big car industries with fully automated machines can leave a manufacturing defect.
You have to notify your dealer immediately if you think your car has manufacturing defects. But if a dealer or manufacture refuses to pay attention to that then get an attorney to file a lawsuit about that. If not then you may have to get an accident attorney as a consequence. So be careful with cases like that.
Faulty Medical Equipment
Healthcare is the only department where you have every right to get the perfect service. But medical equipment’s are a vital part of it. If they got a defect in them then major accidents can happen. And that may even cost lives.
Defective medical equipment’s cover the following areas:
- Metal body part replacement (like metal hips, bone plates etc.)
- Birth control devices
- Surgical accessories
- Life support equipment
Baby & Kids Products
Babies and kids should always get best of all products as they are not tough and strong like an adult. But some toys can be dangerous if found faulty. Generally these types of injuries are among the following products:
- Mechanical kids bikes
- Air guns
- Recreational equipment like slides, see-saw etc.
- Baby care furniture’s like drop side cribs
Dangerous Consumer Products
We use a lot of consumer products every minute as we speak of. Some of them are a potential threat to our health, but we decide to use them anyway. Like tobacco products.
Some accessories cover this area also, like knives or nun chucks. Guns are also a part of this area.
Another major part of this area is dangerous foods. Like junk foods, this can start with food poisoning and end up with heart diseases.
Aristotle said that, “The wise man does not expose him needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently”. So try to avoid dangerous products if possible. And about others, using with precaution can be the only way to avoid damages.
