It’s disappointing to spend your hard earned money on something only to find out it doesn’t work properly. Depending on the cost of the item, you may toss it, attempt to return it to the store for a refund, exchange it for a properly working item, or even repair the device. But there are some products that can cause serious injury to you or your child or family member if it malfunctions. In that case, you may have to deal with a trip to the emergency room, a ride in an ambulance, medical treatment, bills and it may even be in your best interest to consider filing a lawsuit.

What happens when you purchase a product?
When you purchase and use consumer products, what you actually do is enter into a relationship with the entity that manufactured, marketed and sold those items. The law expects makers and sellers of products to protect the well-being of consumers. A harmful or defective product like the following can unnecessarily endanger the lives and health of innocent people at risk:
- Car parts
- Home maintenance and repair products
- Power tools and appliances
- Food products, including restaurant meals and food purchased in supermarkets
- Medical devices
Did a chemical product that you purchased in a lawn and garden shop explode at your home, causing injury to yourself or a family member? Were you involved in a rear end collision caused by a defective accelerator pedal or brake pedal in your vehicle? Contact a qualified and experienced attorney with the Teal Law Group today.
Did the Product Have a Manufacturing Defect? Had It Been Recalled?
It’s important that you learn whether or not the lawn mower or electric saw that injured you or killed your family member was listed as a “product recall.” Did the manufacturer neglect to inform you in a timely manner that the product had been deemed unsafe? What if your injury is the first to be reported using the defective product? You may be able to do future consumers a favor by bringing an injury claim or lawsuit against the manufacturer, vendor or maintenance company responsible for the integrity of the product. If this is the case you need an exceptional lawyer attorney who will represent you and fight for justice on your behalf.
