Every year, consumers suffer personal injuries caused by defective products. In recent years, some of the most widely publicized cases involved everything from defective baby cribs, overheated laptops, and dealer installed SUV tires to exploding propane grills. It is not unheard of for consumers to die from injuries caused by defective products. In some cases, the company at fault discovers the defect and issues a recall before anyone is seriously injured. However, all too often, the opposite occurs.
In the United States, consumers have excellent legal remedies when they experience a loss due to product defects. However, every consumer should consult a personal injury attorney, as soon as an injury occurs. The laws of most states do not require that the injured person prove that the manufacturer was negligent. In most states, the consumer only has to prove that the product was defective. Sounds easy enough. Yet, this can be a tricky situation for consumers to navigate without assistance from a personal injury attorney
