WHAT YOU BUY SHOULDN’T CAUSE YOU INJURY

Manufacturers have a duty to make sure that their products are safe. If you or someone you care about has been injured by a defective product, do not delay in contacting an experienced product liability lawyer. A thorough investigation is critical to a successful product liability case.

At Virk Personal Injury Law, we have the tools and resources to research the identity of the manufacturer, how the defective product was manufactured, how it works, where the defect is, what mechanism caused the defect, whether the design or manufacture is defective and whether the defect caused the injury.

Many of these injuries could have been avoided if appropriate safety and design measures were taken to ensure the quality of these products and the manufacturer should therefore be held accountable for the suffering you are going through. You may be able to claim the following damages for your losses suffered:

  • Pain and suffering damages (for loss of your enjoyment of life)
  • Loss of future earnings (financial loss due to the inability to work, reduced earning capacity and loss of future opportunity)
  • Future care costs (medical care, rehabilitation and other future costs including nursing or attendant care beyond what is available from accident benefits)
  • Housekeeping and Homemaking Services
  • Compensation for family members affected by your injuries (for cost of services you provided and the loss of care, guidance and companionship they have suffered)

Have you been injured by a defective product?

There are three categories of a defective product, where a manufacturer may be held liable:

  • Manufacturing
  • Flawed Design
  • Inadequate Warnings

Manufacturing

This can be a defect that may have not been detected either in its production stage or possibly while it was being manufactured. There is also a possibility something may have been added by mistake on the assembly line for example.

Flawed Design

This can be a defect that may have come from the actual design of the product. There is a possibility that research and testing were done and the product was deemed safe for consumer use when in actuality it was not.

Inadequate Warnings

This can be an issue that caused injury due to a lack of warning labels from the manufacturer of the product.

If a customer has been injured while using a product the way it was designed and manufactured to be used, liability can fall on one or all of either the designer, manufacturer, distributor or seller. We will do a thorough investigation to determine who is liable and ensure that the party is held accountable for any injuries or suffering caused.
