West Palm Beach Defective Household Product Attorneys
Companies that design, manufacture, and distribute household products have a responsibility to make sure that defective products never make their way into the hands of consumers. However, should they make their way to the market, the company is responsible for initiating a recall to fix the problem in order to take consumers out of harm’s way. Despite the ethical and legal obligations these companies have to their customers, the unfortunate fact is that defective products cause serious injuries to consumers all over the country, each and every year.
At Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck, P.A., our West Palm Beach defective household product attorneys know just how much harm a defective household product can cause and, therefore, we aggressively take the legal action necessary to help you pursue compensation for the injuries that you or a loved one has sustained. So, whether you were hurt in an accident caused by a defective space heater, power tool, kitchen appliance, or any other household product, our legal team has the experience and resources you will need to demand compensation from the company that is responsible for the defect that caused you harm.
Determining Liability for the Defect
Generally speaking, household product defect claims can be broken down into three types: those associated with the design, manufacturing, or marketing of the product. Design defects constitute fundamental problems in the household product, and every iteration of that product will contain the defect. Manufacturing defects, on the other hand, are caused by problems in the construction of the product and may only affect a relatively low number of products. Marketing defects are related to the way in which consumers are told that they can safely use a product; these defects will be present in each product that has been mislabeled or otherwise improperly marketed.
Claiming Compensation for the Accident
Once we can establish who exactly may be held liable for the accident, we will then be able to shift our attention to developing the legal strategy that we will use to pursue compensation from the responsible party. Though every case will be unique, just about every injury claim associated with a defective household product can demand compensation for the following:
- Medical and rehabilitative care
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages during recovery
Aside from the compensation we may be able to recover with your claim, it may also be possible to help prevent other accidents like yours from befalling others. In any event, we want to help you take aggressive action as you pursue compensation from the company responsible for the household defect that resulted in your unnecessary pain and suffering.
