Let Everyday Legal by FindLaw Help You Get the Compensation You Deserve for Your Product Liability Case
What is Product Liability Law?
Have you ever been injured by a product you purchased or had severe problems related to a medical device that’s been recalled? Defective and dangerous products cause thousands of consumers harm every year – through no fault of their own.
Product liability law is a set of laws, different than injury laws, which deal with holding responsible parties – sellers and manufacturers – accountable for the dangerous or defective products they make and sell. Consumers like you are protected under state and federal laws, and safe-guarded from dangerous products hitting the market. But sometimes, certain products fall through the cracks.
Should You Hire an Attorney?
Unlike ordinary injury law, product liability law may in some cases make it easier for someone with an injury to recover a monetary award. That said, product liability claims are often very complicated and involve class actions. Having an attorney to guide you through the process increases your chances of success.
But aren’t lawyers expensive? It’s a common question. Fortunately, when it comes to product liability, lawyers in this field work on a contingency fee basis. That is, you don’t pay any money up front. The lawyers only get paid if you receive a settlement or damages award, and their fee comes out of your award. If you don’t get paid, your lawyer doesn’t get paid.
