When you buy a product such as a stroller or space heater, the last thing you expect is for it to cause an injury to you or a family member. Safety and reliability are important concerns in all products, from prescription drugs to tires to lawn mowers. Whether it’s an expensive reputable brand or a budget line, the same rules apply: design and quality standards must ensure safety.
Unfortunately corporations that design, manufacture, and market the products we use do not always have their eyes on consumers’ well being. Sometimes they put profits before safety. By doing so, they are likely to produce products that are dangerous and unsafe, thereby unfairly placing the trusting consumer in harm’s way. If a defective product has injured you or a loved one, contact a lawyer at Hughes & Coleman to protect your legal rights. We want to help you hold these thoughtless and careless manufacturers accountable for the unsafe products they market to the unsuspecting public.
Every year thousands of products are found to be defective or unsafe and must be recalled by either the manufacturer or a government agency. The reasons necessitating a recall can result from a flaw in the product’s design, a manufacturing mistake, contamination of foods and/or materials used in the product, or an unseen risk which presents itself after the product has been on the market for months or even years. A Kentucky or Tennessee defective product attorney from Hughes & Coleman will help you through the complicated legal process and fight to obtain compensation for your injuries.
Types of Product Liability Cases
Product liability cases may involve a long list of responsible parties or companies, but there are typically three different kinds of defective product cases:
Manufacturing defects – defects that occur in the process of making the product (i.e. a bolt that isn’t tightened properly at the factory which results in the leg of a baby chair falling off easily)
Design defects – defects that are inherent to the product’s conception (i.e. a swimming pool with holes in the bottom or an air conditioner that blows hot air)
Marketing defects – improperly warning the consumer of the product’s possible dangers (i.e. inadequate safety warnings or failing to include a comprehensive instruction manual)
In many defective product cases it is up to the plaintiff to prove that the product in question is defective and unsafe. You need an experienced Kentucky or Tennessee defective product lawyer to help you win the money you deserve for your injuries.
No one deserves to be put at risk because of a dangerous or defective product. The attorneys at Hughes & Coleman represent individuals who have suffered a Kentucky or Tennessee defective product injury involving a range of defective or recalled items.
