What is Products Liability?
As consumers we have an expectation that the products we buy on the shelves of our stores or on the Internet are safe to use. If you or your family have been the victim of a faulty product due you deserve to know your rights. At The Armstrong Firm we believe in protecting you, the consumer.
Types of Liabilities
There are three general types of product defects that a court could find a manufacturer liable: design defects, manufacturing defects and marketing defects, such as mislabeling or false advertising. There are many reasons a product could be defective, often it can be a simple design flaw or negligence at the place of production.
Examples of products liability include:
- Tire defects
- SUV rollovers and roof crush injuries
- Defective air bags, seat belts, gas tanks, seat backs
- Dangerous or defective drugs
- Defective medical products, such as implantable pacemakers
- Defective diagnostic machines
- Industrial tools and machinery
- Power tools
The fact is that there are many reasons a product can be faulty and these reasons can occur in many different places. There are laws in place that are there to protect us from these issues and at The Armstrong Firm we will work tirelessly to represent you. Regardless of the reason, we can use our experience to represent you.
Fighting For Fair Compensation
The major decision of filing a personal injury case is determining what compensation a victim is due. Compensation can cover everything from lost wages and the loss of future earnings to future medical care and handicap accessibility. However, insurance companies do not want to pay you the amount that you deserve. Insurers will try to place liability for the accident on you to reduce the amount they owe. Fortunately, we are prepared to stand up for you.
