We hold manufacturers responsible in product liability cases

Injuries to Children,Our Blog | July 28, 2014

Last week, we wrote about the massive recall of certain Graco car seat models earlier this month. As we explained, the recall is primarily due to an allegedly defective buckle that could make it difficult to remove the child from the seat in an emergency situation.

While Graco fiercely fought allegations that the buckle was defective, it finally gave-in and recalled certain car seat models after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration declared that failing to do so would pose an “unreasonable risk.”

Additionally, we wrote that when children are injured due to unsafe or defective products, the manufacturers can often face liability in personal injury lawsuits. These types of lawsuits are known as product liability claims.

Product liability means that the manufacturer of products can be held responsible when a product doesn’t work the way it was supposed to and someone was injured or killed as a result. Oftentimes, the injuries are due to poor design or improper warning labels.

When a person of any age is injured or killed due to a defective or unsafe product, the victim or the victim’s family may benefit from speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help them determine if they may have a claim for damages.

Oftentimes, product liability cases are complex and require expert analysis and testimony, which is why it’s extremely important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
