Longview Product Liability Injury Lawyer
A product can be considered dangerous for several different reasons. A drug may have dangerous side effects that are not clearly labeled, and taking it may cause serious illness or death. A manufactured product may have a design defect that makes it dangerous to use. This often happens with cars when the steering or brake mechanisms lock up and cause a serious accident. People can be injured by defective products or appliances in the house such as a device that is not properly insulated which can electrocute you. State law provides what is known as an implied warranty that products are safe for their intended use.
The manufacturer may try to disclaim the implied warranty, but you should bring all the documents to your lawyer, who can examine how it is worded. At the Sloan Firm, we help people with their injuries that resulted from defective products. If a manufacturer has stated that their product is safe or has failed to clearly list any risks associated with the product’s use, they may be guilty of false advertising. Many times people are hurt by a product that has been recalled by its makers. Our law firm can help you if a manufacturer sold you a defective product that resulted in a personal injury of some kind.
