Over the years, countless people in the United States have been injured or killed by defective products. Federal regulations in place are designed to protect consumers from getting potentially dangerous products, but sometimes those laws simply are not enough.
When a consumer receives a defective product that causes injury or worse, he or she has the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer or seller of the defective item. Thousands of people file lawsuits every year claiming that companies put profits above public safety.
Product liability is the law surrounding injuries suffered from defective items and can help those injured by faulty products get the compensation they deserve.
