You should be able to trust that what you buy will be reasonably safe, as long as you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the product as it is meant to be used. Unfortunately, hundreds of recalls are issued in the United States each year by companies which unreasonably place unsafe products on the market. Sometimes, those recalls come too late to prevent consumers from getting hurt.
You have a right to sue any company that caused you physical harm by selling you a defective product. Working with a Blue Bell defective products lawyer at Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers will increase your chances of a positive case result.
An experienced attorney like Founding Partner Jon Ostroff can demand the monetary damages you deserve for your ordeal. He has been involved in cases leading to the recovery of millions of dollars for the families of numerous individuals killed or seriously injured in product liability “design” cases involving dangerous forklifts, ladders, treadmills, exercise and fitness equipment, and other dangerous products at home or in the workplace. Regardless of what type of product caused your injuries, our well-respected legal team is prepared to fight for you.
“Strict Liability” for Product Defects
Most of the time, suing someone else for an injury involves proving they were directly responsible for causing that injury through their own reckless or careless actions. In legal terms, this is known as “negligence.” Although it is possible to sue a product manufacturer for negligently injuring a customer, it is more common and often easier to hold them “strictly liable” for your injury by proving the following facts:
- The product was defective in a specific way
- The defect existed when the manufacturer gave up direct control over the product—for example, when they sent it to a distributor or sold it directly to you
- The product was in the same condition when it reached you as it was when it left the manufacturer’s direct control
- The defect in the product was the direct cause of your physical injury
- You were using the product the way it was supposed to be used—or in a way the manufacturer should have known a reasonable person might use it—when you were injured
As our Blue Bell attorneys can further explain, defects that can allow for a product liability type of claim include defects in design, manufacturing, and marketing. If a product is unreasonably dangerous because it had a crucial design flaw, was manufactured incorrectly, or did not have instructions for safe usage, the manufacturer may be strictly liable for any resulting injury.
