Are all products dangerous?

Some of the most benign and innocuous products such as foods or baby clothes can sometimes become dangerous. Other products may seem more dangerous from the get go such as a chainsaw, weedwacker, or construction equipment, but even with their inherent dangers, people who use them according to the product’s instructions and safety guidelines, they should not get hurt by them.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of a defective product, Maryland product defect lawyers may be able to help you to determine whether or not you have a claim that is worth seeking compensation for.

Do consumers have rights?

Consumers in the United States have a luxury in that there are many laws and regulations in place to try to keep consumers safe from dangerous and defective products. Before a product is made available to consumers they are supposed to go through rigorous tests to ensure that people who use the product do not become injured in doing so.

Products that have inherent dangers to using them can be sold but they usually come with restrictions such as how old a person needs to be before being able to use them responsibly, as well as with warnings on all of the known dangers at risk when using the product, and how to safely use the product.

When one or more of the parties involved in making a product available to consumers is negligent in complying with the laws and regulations they are supposed to and someone gets hurt, the negligent party may be liable for the victim’s injuries.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective or dangerous product while in Maryland, it may be in your best interest to discuss your rights with product defect lawyers who are familiar with the courts in the jurisdiction in which you became injured or unwell.

Who is responsible for a defective product injuring an innocent consumer?

Most defective products have more than one party whose negligence may be found to be at fault for causing a victim’s injuries.

Very often the aforementioned safety tests are conducted by the manufacturers, designers, or engineers, etc., of the product. Unfortunately these tests are not always conducted as rigorously as they are supposed to be and there have been many situations where one or more party knew that a product had not passed its safety tests but let it go to market anyway.

Parties whose negligence may be the cause of a defective product injury victim’s injuries include:

  • Designers
  • Engineers
  • Manufacturers
  • Assemblers
  • Marketers
  • Distributors
  • Sellers
