Were you injured by a defective or dangerous product?
In most cases, a product must meet a consumer’s ordinary expectations, but if that product causes you injury, it might be because it was defectively manufactured, defectively designed, or because the product did not provide adequate instructions or warnings regarding the use of the product.
Under Michigan law, product liability lawsuits can be complicated and complex, especially when it is not always easy to determine who might be at fault for the defect. Liability for dangerous or defective products could rest on any party that might be in the product’s chain of distribution, including the product designer, manufacturer, those responsible for assembling or installing the product, manufacturers of component parts, distributors, wholesalers, and the retail stores that sell products to consumers.
In addition to determining who might be responsible for the defect, you must also be able to prove that the defect existed when the product left the hands of the responsible party. Moreover, you must establish that the injury was foreseeable. If you were using the product in the way that it was intended to be used, or a manufacturer could reasonably expect you to use the product in the way you used it, and the product caused your injury, then you might have a viable products liability claim.
Having the right representation in a product liability lawsuit is vital.
If you have sustained injuries due to a dangerous or defective product, it is important that you consult with a Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as possible. As mentioned above, product liability claims can be complicated and complex, particularly because oftentimes it is difficult to determine who might be at fault, and you may have several theories under which you might be able to bring a claim. By having a Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer who will guide you through the process, and who will fight for your rights, you can really increase your chances of a successful outcome in your case.
