When we, as consumers, purchase products, we expect that they will function or perform as advertised by the manufacturer or retailer. However, all too often people find themselves disappointed by a malfunctioning product—or worse, injured by a defective product. These types of cases can lead to major injuries or even fatal injuries, and even if they do not cause physical harm, if a product fails to function as it is supposed to, this can cause emotional distress for the consumer. If you want to discuss your defective or dangerous product purchase with a product liability lawyer in Camden, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. are available for a free consultation today.
Some manufacturers or retailers are willfully negligent
Although some manufacturers will cease production of a product that has been discovered to be defective, others will try to maximize profits—often at the expense of consumer safety—by continuing to produce the defective item and sell it to the general public. In other cases, retailers may find themselves being informed by concerned customers that a product is broken or otherwise defective, but fail to remove the product from store shelves in the hopes of raking in a few extra dollars. In both scenarios, there is willful negligence at play, and those negligent parties can be held legally accountable (or liable) for the pain and distress their negligent behavior resulted in.
Examples of product liability claims
Product liability issues arise all too often. Here are a few examples of product liability claims:
- Toxic ingredients in processed foods
- Hazardous materials in children’s products (lead in lotions, asbestos in crayons, etc.)
- Small appliance with a wiring defect leads to kitchen fire
- Pressure cooker miscalibrated in factory, results in explosion
How an attorney can make a difference
The manufacturer or retailer may attempt to offer replacements or refunds, but in some cases, this is not enough. Willfully negligent manufacturers and retailers need to be held accountable for their negligence in court so they can learn not to do it again and so that victims of their negligence can get the justice they deserve. We can help you forge a path toward justice in your product liability case by making sure the responsible parties answer for their negligence in court.
