Defective Product Accident Attorney Serving All of Maryland

The United States of America has some of the most competent, innovative, and passionate inventors that truly care about making life easier for the rest of us. Because of this, when we purchase products, we generally expect that at the very least, they will work as intended, whether they are toys, cosmetics, industrial equipment, and everything in between. Though this is frequently the case, in certain circumstances, it is not. Unfortunately, sometimes, this means far more than simply losing our money to a product that does not live up to expectations. In some cases, a defective product can actually cause serious injuries, and if you or a loved one has sustained injuries due to a defective product, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Please continue reading and contact our experienced Maryland defective product attorney to learn more about how our firm can help you through the legal process going forward.

Do I Have a Product Liability Lawsuit?

When a company designs and manufactures a product, they are responsible for ensuring that product is safe for public use. When they fail to take safety into account, whether because of carelessness or sheer maliciousness, people can sustain potentially life-threatening injuries as a result. Furthermore, another key component of producing useful, safe products is including warning labels that clearly demonstrate how–and how not–to properly them. When they fail to do so, product liability law is in place to ensure that both designers and manufacturers can be held liable for their negligence when someone is wrongfully injured.

Types of Product Liability

If you have been injured by a defective product, the first thing you must do is retain the assistance of an experienced product liability attorney. Because so many parties involved in developing each product, you will need an attorney who can analyze every aspect of your case and determine the precise cause of your accident and identify the party responsible for your injuries. There are three primary types of product liability lawsuits, and they are as follows:

  • Design Defects: When a product designer does not consider user safety, there is a very good chance that a faulty design can cause a serious accident. To win a product liability claim, you and your attorney will have to prove that there is a safer and more economically-feasible design that does not hinder the product’s intended function. This is not always easy, which is why you must have a knowledgeable attorney on your side.
  • Manufacturer Defects: Oftentimes, a company will have blueprints for a safe, efficient product, and will send those blueprints out for manufacturing. However, when manufacturers deviate from those blueprints, either to cut costs or save time, an otherwise-safe product can quickly become very dangerous. In this case, you will most likely have a valid product liability lawsuit against a negligent manufacturer.
  • Failure to Warn: In many cases, a product is safely designed and produced by a manufacturer, however, the product still lacks an adequate warning label to inform consumers of how to properly use it. This is frequently the case with power tools and other industrial equipment. For example, if a snowblower does not have a clear and obvious warning label demonstrating how to, and how not to use it, an unknowing consumer may stick his/her hand into the machine to clear it of snow, resulting in a very serious injury.

Statute of Limitations

Every state has a statute of limitations in place that dictates how long individuals have to take legal action after being wrongly injured. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is three years, which means that the wrongly injured have three years from the date of their injuries to sue the negligent party who caused them. Do not wait another day. We are ready to begin the claims process on your behalf.
