Should all defective product injury victims seek compensation for their injury or illness?

While many defective product injury victims should seek compensation for expenses related to their injury or illness, depending on each individual’s situation, it may not be worth every single product injury victim’s time to pursue compensation. A big reason for this is that there are many strict deadlines, rules and laws that govern filing personal injury claims. For the typical layperson, understanding and adhering to these can be difficult. You may have already missed deadlines and/or do not qualify for filing a personal injury claim in your state.

A good way to help you to start to determine whether you should pursue compensation for an injury or illness that was caused by a faulty or dangerous product is with the help of product defect lawyers who are licensed to practice in College Park and throughout MD (or in the state where your injury occurred).

What kinds of product liability claims can you make in Maryland?

The information contained in this article is general and is not intended to be legal advice. A good place to get credible advice is from personal injury lawyers who are licensed to practice in the state where your injury occurred. If you have been injured in College Park or throughout MD, DC, or VA, Cohen & Cohen, P.C. has highly rated product defect lawyers who can help you to determine whether your particular situation warrants a personal injury claim.

The three basic product liability claims a Maryland consumer can typically make include one or more of the following:

Negligence If an injured consumer can prove that they were injured and that the injury was caused by the negligence of one or more party that contributed to making the unsafe product available to consumers, the product injury victim may be able to file a claim.

Breach of Warranty When consumers purchase a product in the United States there are certain implied and express warranties that are supposed to ensure the product’s safety. When one or more of these warranties are breached and result in a consumer becoming injured or unwell as a result of the product’s use, they may be able to file a claim.

Strict Liability A consumer needs to prove that a product was defective in order to file this kind of tort action. Even though this type of claim may seem similar to that of negligence, the victim (the plaintiff) does not need to prove that the manufacturer and/or seller, etc., acted negligently.
