When a product is careless designed or manufactured and you are injured as a result, the damage that has been caused is the responsibility of those who created, designed and sold it. There have been many defective products sold to American consumers throughout the years, ranging from big, expensive items such as airplanes, automobiles and construction equipment to small, incidental items such as baby bottles and shoes. When a product is responsible for an injury to you or someone you love, you need the help of an experienced product liability and personal injury attorney to represent your rights and make sure that you receive compensation for the damages you’ve suffered. James Kennedy has been helping victims of defective products get the justice that they deserve for many years, and he can help you too.
Manufacturers and those who design or engineer the products that they sell have a responsibility to make sure that the products that they are selling are safe. Items that are sold are supposed to be able to perform the job that they are made for without causing injury. Companies are required to provide adequate safety testing, as well as to warn the public of any safety hazards of which they are aware. Failure to provide this kind of warning or protection is considered reckless or negligent, and when this kind of negligence is proven the companies are required to pay for the damage that their product has caused.
There are many examples of the types of defects that can cause injury to the consumer as a result of inadequate testing or poor design. Vehicles are often designed with inadequate crash protection or seatbelts or child restraints that fail. Tires may explode or fall apart as a result of poor construction or inadequate quality control. Products for home use such as trampolines or lawnmowers may be designed without property safety protections, resulting in terrible injuries to children. Industries that sell products are required to ensure that their products are safe. It is their responsibility to anticipate situations that may arise during reasonable and normal use and either warn against injury or protect against it. When they fail to do so they are responsible for the injury that has been caused.
If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed as the result of a defective product then you may be able to receive compensation from the product’s manufacturer. James Kennedy is an experienced, caring attorney who understands how frustrating it is to have been harmed by the negligence of someone else, and he will fight to make sure that you get the justice that you deserve.
