When you’re out shopping, you don’t stop to think twice about whether a product has the potential to harm you. It’s on the shelf, so it should have been safety tested, or so you presume.
The design and production of an item should be screened by manufacturers and only marketed when safe to use. This is not always the case.
Any of the parties involved in the manufacturing or marketing of a product are responsible for maintaining the safety of all consumers. Liability for harm or injury to an individual caused by a defective product lies upon the manufacturer.
Here are a number of parties involved in the manufacturing, production, and marketing of a product that may be held liable in a defective product claim:
- The company in charge of the design of the product.
- The manufacturer of the product’s components.
- The assembler of the product.
- The retailer that marketed the defective product.
It is the duty of the manufacturer and all parties involved in the sale of a product to ensure the safety of the customer. If you or a loved one believe you may be suffering from an injury caused by a defective product, you should seek a FREE consultation from the experienced product liability attorneys at J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys.
After establishing the validity of your claim, proving negligence of the defendant is essential. Temporary to permanent injuries, health effects, disfigurement, or even death can result from a mishap with a defective product.
