Holding Manufacturers Liable for Defective Product Injuries
Manufacturers can be held financially liable for injuries caused by their products. If you were injured using a consumer product or good, you should not have to bear the costs of your injury. You should be compensated for your medical bills, including those you have yet to incur; your time away from work; your reduced future earning capacity; and your pain, suffering, and inconvenience.
To hold the manufacturer liable, we do not have to show actual negligence. Instead, we must demonstrate that the injury resulted from the product itself and not your misuse of it. If we can convince a jury of the following two factors, we stand a strong chance of winning compensation:
You Used the Product for Its Intended Purpose
The manufacturer is liable for an injury caused by its product only when the injured party was using the product for its intended purpose. As an example, if you were using a riding lawn mower to cut your grass when the engine overheated, resulting in an explosion that injured you, we could pursue compensation from the manufacturer because your use of the lawnmower was exactly what the product was made for.
You Did Not Substantially Modify the Product from Its Original Form
Your defective product case against the manufacturer will be much stronger if you did not materially alter the product from its original form. Any substantial modifications to the product could serve as grounds for the manufacturer to argue that the product as they put it on the market was not defective. They will claim the defect resulted from your putting your own modifications on the product.
For example, if you lose control of your car because the steering column locks up while the vehicle is in motion, the manufacturer is likely liable for your injuries. However, if you made heavy after-market modifications to the car after purchasing it, you can expect the manufacturer to attempt to tie whatever went wrong to the updates you made.
The Rayne defective product lawyers at Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers will investigate your accident and build a case, backed by substantial evidence to demonstrate your injuries were caused by the inherent defectiveness of the product.
