You do not expect to get injured by a product you purchased, unless you have been fully warned of the risk of certain injuries. Sometimes products you would never expect to be dangerous end up causing injury because of some defect or flaw, such as phone batteries that catch on fire and cause severe burns.
Severe injuries are expensive to treat. If a defective product harmed you, then you may be owed compensation from the responsible party. To learn more about these cases and to arrange a consultation with the experienced Norfolk and Omaha product liability attorneys at Copple, Rockey, McKeever & Schlecht P.C., L.L.O., please call 402-371-4300.
Do You Have a Defective Product Claim?
Talking to our lawyers in a consultation is the only way to know for sure if you have a case. Generally, the following elements are common to all product liability claims:
- You suffered an injury while using a product
- The product has a defect or inadequate safety labeling
- The injury was a direct result of the defect or inadequate safety labeling
Are you facing expensive medical bills because of the injury? Maybe you're also unable to work and facing the prospect of lost income. This makes it difficult to support your family and get back on the road to recovery. On top of all of those things, you may be dealing with physical pain, mental anguish, depression and anxiety, because of the way you were injured. It is the sum of all of these consequences for which our attorneys seek compensation on your behalf. You do not deserve to deal with the expense and turmoil of this injury while the responsible party pays nothing. Rely on us to tirelessly pursue the best possible outcome to your case.
Examples of Common Product Liability Claims
Virtually any consumer item could contain a dangerous defect:
- Seat belts
- Farm machinery
- Electronic devices
- Kitchen appliances
- Children's toys
- Medical devices
- Power tools
- Industrial equipment
- Pharmaceutical drugs
There are several types of product liability –
Design defects: products that were flawed in their design
Manufacturing defects: the defect is introduced at some point during the manufacturing process
Marketing defects: products that were falsely or improperly marketed to the general public, resulting in injuries and illnesses
Lack of proper warnings: products that lacked the necessary warning labels, drug interaction warnings, or the proper safety instructions
Such defects are not usually intentional, but are instead the result of carelessness and negligence. In these cases, negligence is no excuse for causing catastrophic harm to a consumer. The attorneys at our practice have the necessary resources and experience to determine who is responsible, and to pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
