Milwaukee Defective Product Lawsuits
We represent victims who were injured or killed by defective products. It is the legal and ethical obligation of product manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to develop, make, and sell safe products that will not harm the consumers who purchase and use them. Despite this obligation, many people are injured by defective products every year. If consumer safety was priority number one to these companies, many of these accidents could be prevented.
Let us evaluate your claim to see if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. We have a successful record of recovering maximum damages for clients involved in defective product accidents.
Your first consultation is free and we only get paid when a recovery is made on your behalf.
What Makes a Product Defective?
A defective product is one that causes injury as the result of faulty labeling. There are three types of defective products that can cause injury:
Marketing or labeling defects involve products that are not sufficiently labeled, regarding directions or warnings of product dangers.
Design defects concern flaws in design that makes the product reasonably unsafe for consumers to use.
Manufacturing defects concern defects which arose when the product went through the manufacturing process.
In the case of any of these defects, product liability laws are in place to protect consumers and hold the responsible parties accountable. Defective products may include:
- Vehicles, automotive parts and safety devices
- Childcare and childrens products
- Pharmaceuticals, medicinal products and devices
- Machinery, tools, and construction equipment
- Household products, items, and appliances
What is Product Liability?
Product liability is a matter of law which holds manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and suppliers accountable for injuries to consumers which are caused by defective products. Types of product liability include the following:
Breach of Warranty: This includes breach of express (stated) warranty, breach of implied warranty of merchantability (a guarantee that the product will work when used for intended purposes), and breach of implied warranty of fitness (a guarantee that the product will work for a specific purpose).
Negligence: This includes carelessness or disregard on the behalf of a manufacturer in inspection, design or failure to warn of a reasonably foreseeable risk.
Strict Liability: Strict liability holds distributors, manufacturers, or sellers responsible for injuries resulting from defective products regardless of whether or not the injured person did everything in their own power to prevent the defect from occurring.
How a Product Liability Attorney Can Assist You
If you have been injured by a defective product, product liability law outlines certain elements which must be proven:
- An injury or loss has occurred
- The product has a defect
- Your injury resulted from that defect
- You were using the product properly when the injury occurred
A defective products attorney will evaluate your case and all supporting evidence to determine the source of the product defect, whether it be manufacturing or design related, or have been caused by failure to warn. In cases of strict liability, only the defect of a product must be proven to support the claim.
