We use consumer products on a daily basis, usually not stopping to think that defective products could cause extremely serious injuries. For example, the if the toothbrush you used this morning snapped, it could cause extremely serious injury to your cheek, potentially resulting in permanent scarring. Similarly, every time you get behind the wheel of your car you are putting faith in the fact that the brakes will work as you approach an intersection, allowing you to stop. If they failed, you could be involved in a life-changing accident.
If a defective product has caused you injury, you may have a valid product liability lawsuit. In many cases, victims can recover compensation for losses like medical expenses, lost income, loss of quality of life, and physical and emotional pain and suffering. Consequently, it is important for anyone who believes they have been injured by a defective product to have their case reviewed by an experienced attorney.
