What options are available to injured consumers?


Everyday, consumers rely on various products to get through their day. Whether it is a beauty product, an automobile or a technological device, people use these items without considering the possible dangers and risks they could face. When a product is determined to be dangerous or defective, it is often recalled, but this step does not always protect a consumer from injuries.

When a product injures a consumer, they might have a cause of action. In most cases, this comes in the form of a products liability claim. In order to prove such a cause, the consumer needs to establish a responsible party so that they can assign liability. The injured consumer can file legal action against the manufacturer of the product, the seller of the product or the distributor of the product. In some cases, it might make sense to include all of those parties as defendants.

The injured victim should conduct independent investigation to strengthen or prove their claim. If they can prove knowledge of the defect or negligence in the manufacturing of the product, the consumer could win their civil action. This could result in compensation, which is commonly used to cover related expenses such as medical bills, lost wages and other damages.

Whether the manufacturer is liable due to negligence, strict liability or breach of warranty, consumers should know their rights. This can help them navigate a claim or any type of action arising out of the situation. A dangerous product could seriously impact a consumer and they might only have a limited time to file an action. Understanding the process will help to ensure their interests and rights are protected.
