If you have been injured or suffered property damages because of a product you used, you may have a defective product liability claim. At the Bonneau Law Firm, our experienced liability attorneys may be able to help you seek compensation.
There are three types of claims that categorize product liability cases: (1) defectively manufactured; (2) defective design; or (3) failure to provide adequate warning or instruction for proper use.
Defectively manufactured products are different from other ones on the shelf due to some error in the fabrication process—an error in making the product. For example, a tainted batch of milk containing a poisonous substance.
Defectively designed products may be made exactly to specifications, but the design of the product is inherently flawed. With a defective design, an entire line of products is inherently dangerous. For example, a line of electric blankets that, when on high setting, can electrocute the user.
Failure-to-warn claims typically involve a product that is dangerous in some way that is not obvious to the average user and requires special precautions or diligence when using it. For example, a cough syrup that does not include a warning about dangerous side effects.
Some cases involve all of the types of claims, and many product liability cases involve complex scientific data to prove the product caused an accident while being used reasonably. The Bonneau Law Firm can help you understand your claim and may even be able to represent your case. Call us today at (972) 325-1100 to speak with an experienced personal injury law firm.
