Choose an experienced eastern Tennessee products liability lawyer
You buy a product that you expect will make life a little easier: a new car with the latest safety features or a home appliance that can make preparing the family dinner more efficient.
If you or a loved one is coping with a health issue, a doctor might use a medical device during surgery or prescribe a drug that could completely change your life.
Unfortunately, household products, motor vehicles, medical devices, medications and other consumer goods can have a negative impact on your life when they are defective or dangerous. A defective medical device or a dangerous drug can have serious, adverse side effects. A defective seat belt or airbag can result in a catastrophic injury or death during an accident.
Circumstances leading up to a defective product lawsuit
A defective product case may arise if a product is considered defective, unsafe, or if the product fails to meet design, construction or performance standards and causes harm to an individual. The following are a few examples of how defective products cause harm:
- A lamp, toaster or laptop computer that causes harm to a user (for example, an electric shock or a fire)
- A dangerous toy or other product designed for children that may have a fire hazard or other safety issue.
- A defect in an automobile, such as faulty brakes or other car parts, that causes a high-speed crash.
Types of defective product cases, or product liability claims, include manufacturing defect cases, design defect cases and cases in which there were insufficient instructions or warnings on the product.
If you or a loved one is injured by a dangerous product, you should contact an experienced products liability lawyer. An attorney who is well versed in state and federal law can stand up for you and demand justice. Insurance companies for big businesses have resources to defend themselves. They will work aggressively to delay or deny a claim. Our eastern Tennessee product liability attorneys are aware of their tactics and know how to counter their arguments.
