How Can We Help?

Nashville Defective Product Lawyer

You see an advertisement for a product you need, and the next time you are at the store, you buy it. However, it malfunctions, causing you to be injured. As a consumer, you expect that the products you buy will function as intended by the manufacturer. Sadly, though, this is not always the case. 

Dangerous or defective products can result in injury, property damage, or even death. Nashville victims can file a product liability personal injury claim for their pain and suffering that was caused by a defective product. You too can take this legal action to recover expenses for medical bills, lost time from work, property damage, and more. 

At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers in Nashville, TN, our products liability lawyers fight for your rights. We aren’t afraid to deal with large manufacturers, and we do what’s necessary to recover the compensation you need. What’s more, we work on a contingency fee basis, so there’s no financial risk for your family. Contact our Nashville, TN, office today at (615) 490-0660 to schedule a free consultation.

Different Kinds of Product Liability Cases

One type of product liability case involves a manufacturing error, where the product does not work as intended or is missing vital parts. There may be a clear-cut way to prove that the manufacturer is at fault for selling the defective item. If so, you are likely to recover compensation from the company for your injuries and property loss. 

Another type of product liability case involves defective design. In other words, the product’s design was faulty or dangerous. In such a case, there wouldn’t necessarily be a manufacturing error present. Rather, the product itself would be inherently unsafe. 

Additionally, a product can be considered defective or unsafe if its instructions failed to either properly explain the safe way to use the product or warn against possible injury risks. While the product itself may not have malfunctioned, perhaps the manufacturers were negligent in informing their consumers of how to safely use the product, thereby causing injury. These are called “failure to warn” cases. 

It doesn’t matter whether your case is a “failure to warn” products liability claim or a case of defective products produced by a large manufacturing company. No matter what type of product liability situation you have, your Nashville Hughes & Coleman attorney can help you recover compensation for your injuries. Let us worry about the legal details so you can focus on your recovery.

Who Can Be Held Responsible in a Products Liability Claim

In a product liability case, you might be able to make a claim against a variety of people, depending on the specifics of your case. The details – such as how you were injured, what type of product it was, where you bought it, and who assembled it – can all affect your claim.

Parties that may be involved in your product liability case include:

  • The product manufacturer
  • The product designer
  • The party that assembles or installs the product
  • The retailer or wholesaler

Essentially, anyone who was involved in the process, from the creation of the dangerous or defective product until it ended up in your hands, is possibly culpable. While it may be nearly impossible to get proof of a manufacturer’s or designer’s negligence in some product liability cases, the injury itself is often proof enough that there was negligence in the production process. 

In order to have the best chance of recovery, you must speak with a Nashville personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Your product liability attorney will be able to give you a better idea of who may be held responsible and whether you may be able to recover financially for your injuries related to a defective or dangerous product. 

Breach of Warranty Cases

Some product liability cases involve a breach of warranty, which means that the manufacturer violated a promise they made to you. This promise or warranty can either be expressed or implied in the advertisements or instructions for the products. An implied warranty is an assumption that the product will perform its intended function. 

In some cases, a breach of warranty claim can be addressed by dealing with the seller to correct a problem or replace a part. On the other hand, sometimes these cases need to be handled legally. 

Don’t let the complicated words and legal-ese scare you out of your right to be compensated for your injuries. When a Nashville product liability lawyer takes on your case, we also take on your legal concerns. You will be able to focus on yourself and your loved ones instead.
