What Are Your Rights As a Consumer If You’ve Been Harmed By a Defective Product?
You and your family have the right to be safe from harm when you use a consumer product for its intended purpose. If you are injured, you may be eligible for compensation if the product was defective or unreasonably dangerous at the time you purchased it, or if you used it incorrectly because it lacked proper warnings.
Under the concept of “strict liability,” a lawsuit can be filed without the need to prove negligence or fault if an injury is caused by a dangerous product. This makes it easier for an injured consumer to sue either the product manufacturer or the store where the product was purchased.
Examples of Product Liability Cases
- Defective CPVC pipes in fire and sprinkler systems – Resins in CPVC pipes will leak and blow out over time when exposed to chemicals in construction materials. This causes sprinkler systems to fail during emergencies, as leaking pipes lead to lack of sufficient pressure. Damage can range from mold growth to severe burns and smoke inhalation from a fire.
- Furniture and products created for infants often contain small parts or are unsafe for children to use. These products include strollers, playpens, small toys, safety gates, walkers, high chairs, car seats, pacifiers, and more.
- Dangerous products that are common to most households: garage door openers, cleaning chemicals, heaters, power tools, electronics, and personal hygiene products like talcum powder.
- Recreational vehicles, play equipment, or anything on wheels can cause serious injury: exercise machines, playground equipment, jet skis, ATVs, go-karts, trampolines, skateboards, etc.
- Defective auto parts, especially seat belt failure or faulty airbags.
- Dangerous drugs and defective medical devices that cause serious injuries or have been recalled.
- Defective electronic cigarettes have led to severe burns as a result of exploding batteries. Electronic cigarettes are also dangerous when functioning perfectly, as its use can lead to exposures to carcinogens including, but not limited to: carbon monoxide, heavy metals, and other chemicals linked to cancer.
