When someone is injured because a large corporation puts something dangerous on the market, they can make a claim against the manufacturer or distributor of the dangerous product. Dangerous product injury lawsuits cover many different types of dangerous or defective items. These include:
- Cars that suffer from brake failure due to a design defect
- Home and personal use items that the manufacturer knows contain cancer causing chemicals
- Food infected with e. coli bacterium
In some cases it is obvious that the product is a dangerous product, such as when food poisoning is caused by contaminated food. Other dangerous product cases can be much more complex. A good example is when a car is involved in a collision and catches fire. Cars are supposed to be designed for safety. A good personal injury lawyer will investigate whether the car is properly designed. If it wasn’t and someone was injured, that person may be entitled to compensation.
