Salt Lake City Product Liability Lawyer

Most consumers assume the products they use in their daily lives are extensively tested before marketing and therefore safe. That’s why it can be such an unpleasant shock to sustain a serious injury due to a faulty or unsafe product. Manufacturers must consider the safety of their products at every stage of their life cycles and must carefully anticipate possible design defects, manufacturing mistakes, safety and reliability of each part, and shortcomings in product instructions and safety indications. A manufacturer’s top priority must be the safety of their products for consumers. When a manufacturer fails to take reasonable measures to ensure product safety they can be held liable for an accident victim’s injuries.

If you’ve been injured due to a faulty product, contact the knowledgeable team at Handy & Handy Attorneys At Law, Salt Lake City’s serious law firm for serious product injuries.

Common Product Liability Claims

Any product includes the potential for dangerous failures, whether it’s a product for a child’s sleeping space or a home improvement tool. Accident victims sometimes assume the mistake must have been one on their part because they believe rigorous safety testing requirements protect them from manufacturer defects. Unfortunately, many accidents result from failures of the products themselves, not the person using the product.

Some common product liability claims include the following:

  • Auto part defects
  • Failed medical devices
  • Dangerous defects in children’s toys and baby gear
  • Lawn-maintenance equipment defects
  • Home improvement tool defects
  • Medication problems, side effects, or contamination

Consumers should never assume they are to blame in an accident involving any product. An experienced product liability lawyer can help determine if a failure on the part of the manufacturer was to blame for your accident or injury.

What Compensation Can I Recover From a Product Liability Claim?

Defective or malfunctioning products that cause injury can have a serious impact on your quality of life as well as on your finances. Product liability lawsuits hold manufacturers accountable for a faulty product they allowed on the store shelves and into your home. While individual settlements and awards vary depending on the seriousness of the injury and the degree of fault of the manufacturer, some common compensation in product liability lawsuits include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and income
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Loss of ability to provide services for the family
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life or life-quality
  • Cost of continuing disability or impairment

If you or a family member have been injured due to a defective product, both economic and non-economic damages can help you recover financially so you can focus on your physical recovery.
