Henderson Product Liability Lawyer
We expect that the products we use on an everyday basis will be safe. However, that is not always the case. Food may harbor bacteria that gives consumers food poisoning. A coffee maker may catch fire. A medication may cause you to suffer a heart attack. A toy may come with small parts that create a choking hazard to young children.
In these situations, a person may suffer serious injuries and even death. You need to hold the manufacturer accountable in these situations. But you won’t be able to do it on your own. Most manufacturers are large companies. They may even be multi-million-dollar corporations with high-powered lawyers. You need someone on your side who can stand up to these companies and fight for justice. A Henderson product liability lawyer from Cameron Law can assist you in recovering compensation for all the losses you have suffered due to a defective product.
Types of Defects
There are several things that can make a product defective:
- Defective design. This is when there is a flaw in the design. Because every product will be affected, the manufacturer must issue a recall.
- Defective manufacturing. This is when there is an issue with the materials or assembly processes. An example would be switching suppliers for certain materials. In this case, only certain lots would be affected.
- Defective marketing. Also known as failure to warn, this is when the manufacturer refuses to disclose safety information about the product.
Common Defective Products
Any type of product can be defective, but the most common ones include:
- Motor vehicles
- Vehicle parts (air bags, brakes, seat belts, steering systems)
- Medical devices
- Surgical tools
- Cleaning products
- Household appliances
- Industrial equipment
You Are Injured by a Defective Product. What Happens Next?
If you are injured by a defective product, seek medical help right away so that you have evidence that the injuries were caused by the defective product. Gather any other evidence, such as photos, statements from medical professionals, and witness statements. Make sure you stop using the product right away and contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your legal rights.
Don’t delay because time is limited. Under Nevada law, you have just two years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit against the liable party, so time is of the essence. If you miss the deadline, you won’t be able to obtain compensation for damages.
