How Can We Help?

Louisville Defective Product Lawyer

As a Louisville product consumer, when you purchase something, you expect that it works as intended. However, defective products are all too common, often causing inconvenience and, in some cases, injury. If you have been injured by a product, you shouldn’t have to suffer all of the consequences without receiving compensation from the manufacturer.

That’s where Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers in Louisville, KY, come in. We defend people against the personal injury or monetary damages they have suffered at the hands of the manufacturers. We know that you are likely under pressure, facing medical bills, lost time from work, and property damage. 

Let Hughes & Coleman work on your behalf to help you recover. Contact us at 800-800-4600 for your free consultation.

What Constitutes a Defective Product

Commonly, the manufacturer made an error, causing defective products to not work as intended. However, according to personal injury law, product liability cases can be brought against the manufacturer even if they are unaware of the error and injury that their designs have caused. 

A product may even be considered defective if the instructions did not explain how to safely use the product. These are known as “failure to warn” cases. 

 

Whether your injuries were caused by a malfunctioning product, an inadequately designed product, or a product without the proper safety guidelines, you may be able to recover compensation for your expenses and injuries. 

While facing a large manufacturer in a personal injury lawsuit alone can seem daunting, you don’t have to protect your rights on your own. Hughes & Coleman Louisville product liability lawyers are here to help you.

Who is Responsible in a Defective Product Case?

Identifying the liable party for your injuries can be complicated. Each case is different, including different injuries and circumstances. Your qualified personal injury attorney will give you the best idea of who you may be able to hold responsible for your product liability claims. 

Some possible parties that may be included in your case include:

  • Retail store or wholesaler
  • Product manufacturer
  • Manufacturer of component parts 
  • The party that assembles or installs the product

Throughout the entire process, from getting the product designs to the manufacturing to your hands, anyone who was involved in the process may be involved in your product liability case.

Liability in Defective Product Cases

The majority of product liability cases are based on a legal concept called “strict liability,” which means that you don’t have to prove negligence or recklessness. Rather, the fact that you were injured is proof enough that the product was defective and the other parties are responsible. This puts the victim in a better position compared to other kinds of personal injury claims. 

Another type of liability in defective product cases is a breach of warranty. That means that the company either expressly claimed the product would work a certain way, or they implied by your assumption that their product would work when you purchased it. Most of these breach of warranty claims are fixed by the seller, but if you have suffered injury or damage due to the manufacturer’s action or lack of action, product liability claims may be possible in some cases. 

The type of liability that applies in your case depends on numerous factors. Thus, you should speak with a Louisville product liability lawyer who can advise you on the best course of action. Hughes & Coleman has a team of Louisville product liability lawyers standing by to answer your questions.
