Products that are sold to the public should be safe to use. In some cases, such as with power tools, special care is needed to ensure that the user remains safe. When it comes to product liability claims, it is important to investigate the incident to determine if filing a claim for compensation is something you would like to do.
We know that being injured by a product you purchased or were given is a troublesome experience. It is true that some of the injuries people suffer are because they don’t follow the instructions and use proper safety procedures. In those cases, the manufacturer might not be to blame.
When your injuries occur while you are using the product in the intended manner and using safety procedures, you might decide to explore your right to seek compensation. This might be the case if the product you were using was defective or if proper warnings weren’t provided about the possibility of injuries.
Just recently, there was a story of a man who was killed when he tried to rescue his daughter who was being electrocuted in a swimming pool. Other children were also being electrocuted. The man’s daughter survived, but is in critical condition. The cause is believed to be faulty wiring. That case is an example of a defective, or faulty, product leading to injury.
