Product Liability Injuries
By Mary Ann Pekara
Unfortunately there are times when products might do more harm than good. If you have suffered a personal injury as a result of a defective product, a product liability attorney can help you understand your rights and options to get the compensation you deserve.
You might be able to get compensation for lost work time and medical expenses resulting from a defective airbag, brake failure, an unsafe drug, or another dangerous product. Product liability injury cases can be complicated.
A local lawyer can navigate through the process, and help answer your personal injury questions along the way.
Airbags that are designed to save lives can deploy unexpectedly, or not at all, and result in injuries they were made to prevent. A personal injury attorney can help you coordinate the resources and information to build a personal injury case and hopefully win compensation for your troubles.
Tire Failure Accident Injuries
When a tire blows out, if the tire separates from its rim, or if tread wear becomes dangerous, serious accidents can occur. While tire failure is usually the responsibility of the vehicle owner, there are occasions when the manufacturer is at fault.
A personal injury lawyer can help work through the details of your case, and can coordinate a case against the tire manufacturer if appropriate.
Brake Failure Accident Injuries
In the event that a car's brakes fail, the results can be disastrous. There are many possible causes of brake failure, so it can be a challenge to prove negligence on the part of the brake manufacturer, the automaker, or the maintenance shop. To learn more about your situation and the laws involved with it, talk to a local personal injury lawyer to help answer your questions.
A defective drug can cause serious illnesses, and even death. If a pharmaceutical company withholds important medication information, fails to prevent accidental contamination or neglects the appropriate research and testing, you can sue them for appropriate compensation. The same applies for defective medical devices, like an artificial hip, a breast or penile implant, or a pacemaker.
In these and other defective medical product cases, a personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the complex legal processes involved, gathering evidence and strengthening your case.
How should I deal with the insurance companies?
In a personal injury case, you will often have to deal with representatives from insurance companies. It can be confusing and difficult to understand why you are being asked certain questions. A personal injury lawyer knows how to negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. You are not required to negotiate with the insurance company yourself.
