Do you ever stop to think about how many products you come in contact with every day? While you assume that every one is 100 percent safe, you never really know for sure.
Believe it or not, defective products cause thousands of injuries and deaths in the United States every year. These products range from consumer goods to electronics to automobiles. Product liability law deals with the one question you need answered — who or what was responsible for the product that caused the injury or death?
Product liability laws are not the same in each state, so it's important to understand the rules and procedures in Connecticut, as this will give you a better idea of what to expect if you've been injured by a defective product.
With so many different types of product defects, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what went wrong. Generally speaking, there are three types of defects:
-- Marketing defects
-- Manufacturing defects
-- Design defects
Knowing the type of defect involved makes it easier to determine who is responsible for your injury and other damages.
Due to the fact that product liability lawsuits are extremely complex, it is useful to consult with an attorney as soon as you are injured. While your health comes first, don't hesitate to reach out for legal help once you are in position to do so.
