Harmful Products and Devices
Kentucky Harmful Products and Devices Lawyers
Dangerous products are products that present a significant risk of injury to consumers and users of the product. Every year, countless persons are injured due to the use of dangerous products.
Injuries caused by a dangerous product are generally remedied through a legal damages award. This is obtained by filing a claim or lawsuit with the court. The damages available will usually cover the costs like medical expenses, hospital bills, and other damages. The plaintiff might also be reimbursed for the cost that they spent in buying the product, and authorities will likely pull any remaining products from the consumer market.
Those Injured by Harmful Products and Devices May Collect Damages
Should a product or device lead to injury, determining who should be held accountable can be complicated. Manufacturers, retailers, designers, marketers, and others who participate in getting products to the end user may all have some level of legal responsibility. Product liability law allows those who have been injured to seek compensation from anyone whose negligence or actions played a role in either the production of a defective product or during the process of getting it into the hands of consumers. All types of consumer products can give rise to products liability lawsuits if their design, manufacture, or a failure to warn causes injury. Beyond dangerous drugs, defective medical devices, toxic chemicals, food, automobiles, and other goods people buy and use everyday can sometimes cause injuries for which manufacturers, retailers, and parties along the supply chain can be held liable.
