Products Liability Explained by Our Overland Park Product Defect Lawyers

It is the responsibility of the manufacturers and designers of a product to make sure that the product works safely and properly, but not all products do. Some are defective—by way of design, manufacturing, or marketing. A product with any or all of these types of defects can cause serious injury to consumers who buy and use the faulty product. When this happens, the manufacturer of the defective product responsible for the injury can be held financially liable for damages.

It is important for consumers to remember that the makers and sellers of products have an obligation to consumers to design, assemble, and sell safe products. If a product is “unreasonably dangerous” or is “unsafe for reasonably foreseeable uses,” harm may result. And a product liability lawsuit could be warranted.

Damages in a Product Liability Injury Case

In a product liability case, compensation to the injured party is determined based on the level of damages. Damages are losses that a consumer experiences when they are injured by a defective product. Some of the most common types of damages JHC’s Kansas City personal injury attorneys help clients seek include:

Damages for Wrongful Death Caused by Product Defects

In some cases, the injuries suffered due to a defective product are so severe, they result in death. If your spouse, parent, child, or loved one has died because of a defective product, compensation may be available through a wrongful death claim. Damages that can be sought through a wrongful death lawsuit include:

Product liability injury and wrongful death claims can both also result in punitive damages awarded in cases involving gross negligence. Punitive damages are intended to punish negligent parties and to prevent such negligence from happening again in the future. Our Overland Park product defect lawyers can help you determine whether to seek a punitive damages award in your case.

How can I tell if I have purchased or used a defective product?

It can be difficult to determine if a product you have purchased or used is considered a defective product. If you were using the product as it was intended and sustained a loss or injury that was not connected to normal wear and tear or improper use, then you may have grounds for a product liability claim.

You can also access the list of recalled products compiled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC provides news releases and safety education materials to help consumers stay well informed about different products that have been found to be defective and can cause safety hazards. While it might not have every faulty or defective product listed, it is a good place to start.

What kinds of injuries are a basis for a defective product personal injury claim?

Depending on the product and the nature of the defect, injuries such as broken bones, burns, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injury, lacerations, and electrocutions can result. Any of these injuries can be a basis for a personal injury claim against the company in charge of designing, manufacturing, or marketing the product.
