Have You Been Hurt By A Defective Product?
When manufacturers design and build tools, machines or other equipment, they need to produce items that serve the function they are supposed to serve. They also need to produce a product that is safe to operate each time it is used.
Unfortunately, products are often dangerous to use. They can malfunction, injuring the user in the process, or become unsafe after malfunctioning, leading to a later injury. If you have been injured at home, on the job or elsewhere while using an unsafe product, contact the products liability law firm of MetroLaw.Com. We have an office in Newark and in New York from which to handle cases for injured clients.
Can You Receive Compensation?
The lawyers at MetroLaw.Com have helped thousands of people obtain settlements and jury verdict awards for injuries, including those resulting from defective products. You may be able to file a lawsuit if your injuries resulted from household items like electric space heaters, washing machines, power tools, curling irons or other items. For example, if a circular saw can be operated without the safety guard in place or if a space heater does not turn off when tipped over onto its front, the product may be defective.
You may also have a valid case for on-the-job injuries. In a recent case, our client’s hand was crushed at work in a roller machine that was missing a safety mechanism. We requisitioned company records to determine the manufacturer and obtained a $250,000 award for our client. If you have been injured on the job, you may be eligible for a defective product suit even if you are currently receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
Each case is unique and results will vary depending on the facts of each case.
