Products are supposed to be safe for a person to use and should come with warning labels if there is anything that can injure a person. There should be rigorous testing done before a product is released for sale. Unfortunately, companies will cut corners and fail to test a product thoroughly or fail to create the proper warning labels and place them prominently on the packaging. When this happens, and a person is injured by the product, they can contact a product liability lawyer in Murfreesboro, TN to seek compensation for their injuries from the company.
Just about any product can be part of a product liability lawsuit. The list even includes medications that were not completely tested or that didn’t include side effects or complications with other medications in their warning labels. A person who is injured because of a manufacturing defect can also seek compensation under product liability laws as the manufacturing defect should have been noticed and corrected before the product was offered for sale. A lawyer can review any case in which a person is injured by a product to determine if it meets the qualifications for a product liability suit.
A person should also consider they’re not the only one who has been injured by a product or, if they are the first, there may be others. Often, product liability lawsuits are class-action lawsuits. This means a single lawyer or a team of lawyers will represent everyone who has been injured by a specific product so there is only one lawsuit, but everyone who was injured is able to fight for compensation for their injuries. These cases generally take an extremely long time to conclude, but can benefit anyone who has already been injured and those who will become aware of their injuries within a set amount of time after the lawsuit is concluded.
If you have been injured by a product, take the time to talk to a product liability lawyer in Murfreesboro, TN to see if you have a case and can attempt to obtain compensation for your injuries. The lawyer will carefully review your case to see how they can help. For more information, visit the Law Office of Gritton & Gritton PLLC in person or online.
