If you have been injured while using a product that you purchased in the United States, it does not matter how big or how small the product that caused your injury is, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a reputable product defect law firm Washington DC community members recommend.
When someone is injured while using a product according to any instructions or safety precautions provided with (or on) the product, one or more of the parties involved in the design, engineering, manufacturing, distribution and/or selling of the product may be liable for the victim’s injuries. If a product has a design flaw or manufacturing defect, or if a manufacturer takes inadequate safety precautions, or is guilty of faulty marketing, an injured consumer has the right to seek restitution through a defective product personal injury claim. An innocent victim that did nothing wrong should not have to pay for the costs that are incurred because of their injury. It is important to protect yourself against this by making sure that your legal rights are being upheld. As well, it is important to seek justice for dangerous and defective products being released to the public at large in order to help to protect the greater community.
The theory of product liability is based on the premise that consumers have a basic right to safe and effective products. The term product liability refers to the legal responsibility of those involved in the making and distribution, and in some cases the selling of a product, to ensure that the product is safe for consumption. In this situation, consumption can refer to its traditional use of a food being eaten, a drink being, drunk, and fuel being used, etc., but it also refers to a product being utilized in its intended way such as a car being driven, a phone being talked on or a toy being played with.
