Consumers often take for granted the fact that products sold in stores are assumed to be relatively safe for use. Unfortunately, sometimes defective products slip through the cracks and result in serious injuries for consumers. When an individual is injured by a defective product, he or she may want to consider their legal options to hold the liable party accountable.
There are several different areas that must be assessed when the injured party is looking to hold someone responsible. First, the injured party will have to determine if there was a design defect. If the party who designed the product failed to create the product in a safer, economically feasible way, they may be held liable.
If there was no issue with the design of the product, the next step is to determine if there was an issue with the way the product was manufactured. If one can prove that the manufacturer deviated from the design of the product, they may be held liable for the injuries.
Finally, the injured party should determine if the product had adequate warning labels available. If there were no warnings about potential dangers of the product, the defendant may be held liable.
