Companies have a responsibility to provide products safe for consumers, but in the event defective products have resulted in a personal injury, death, or damage, legal action can be taken. Unsafe products can hold anyone involved with the product being sold to the consumer responsible. Laws exist to protect consumers from injuries caused by unsafe products and to hold manufacturers liable for any unsafe products.
Unsafe products can greatly injure consumers, resulting in physical and financial losses. Since unsafe products can occur with any type of consumer purchase, the unsafe product may have resulted in property damage as well. A products liability lawyer will determine who is liable for the unsafe products and then evaluate what losses have been incurred because of the unsafe products.
If an injury or damage has been sustained and you suspect it was due to unsafe products, it is advised to seek legal consultation. There is statute of limitations for unsafe products that may disqualify an individual otherwise able to collect compensation for the unsafe products.
