Was Your Injury A Result Of Product Liability?
Product liability involves injuries caused by defective products. When an unsafe product causes injuries because of its design or because it was manufactured incorrectly, the product manufacturer may be liable, as well as any company involved in the product’s sale, installation or assembly.
For instance, machinery may be manufactured without adequate safety features, which exposes the operator to risks from its use. Another common example is a food product containing dangerous substances that injure the consumer.
Sometimes products do not have sufficient warnings or instructions, which also makes products unsafe. An example would be a power tool that does not adequately warn the user about exposed moving parts.
In products liability cases, the product manufacturer may be held strictly liable for injuries. This means it is not necessary to prove the manufacturer was negligent in order to recover. At the personal injury firm of Kujawski & Associates LLC, our attorneys take the time to learn about the specific details of your case and will develop a plan to help you recover full compensation for your injuries.
Defending Victims Of Construction And Industrial Accidents
Our firm has successfully pursued numerous products liability cases to verdict or settlement in the construction and industrial sector. Our results have helped to move entire industries to manufacture safer products.
We represented a worker injured by a defective crane that was manufactured without adequate protection for the operator. While extending the boom of the crane, the worker was injured when the headache ball sucked through the end of the boom and crashed into the operator’s cab.
Our lawyers obtained a very substantial settlement against the crane manufacturer. Today, virtually all cranes are built with devices to protect the operator from these types of injuries.
