It seems as though we find ourselves buying something every single day, whether it’s ingredients for dinner, a specialty purchase, or a type of household good. Often, we don’t think twice about whether a product is going to cause us serious harm, especially if it’s something we are very familiar with.

Eisenberg & Associates help you hold the negligent parties accountable. We can work to prove negligence and recover compensation to offset the burdens caused by the defect. Contact Lloyd J.

Product liability cases are similar to many other personal injury cases because they require the injured party to prove negligence. This can be challenging for some but with the help of an effective attorney who may also choose to work with a team of experts, it is possible. Upon being injured by a defective product, it is important to be sure that you do not throw the product out. As tempting as it may be to want to ensure no one else is hurt, keeping the product can actually serve as your best evidence in the case.
There are three categories that a product liability case may fall into. It is important to assess the product and determine what went wrong that ultimately caused you to become injured. The categories are as follows:
- Design Defects: When the design of a product is the root of the problem that caused the injury, the team who designed it can be held liable for your injuries. Be advised that you will be required to prove that the design of the product did not consider a safer, yet equally practical and financially sound way to design the option.
- Manufacturers Defects: If a product’s design was completely safe but the manufacturer deviated from the approved plans during production, they can be held liable for any injuries associated with the deviation.
- Failure to Warn: Even if a product is designed and manufactured as intended, some products still require warnings because they may be dangerous if used improperly. If a company fails to issue warnings about a product, they can be held liable if a consumer becomes injured.
If you have been seriously injured due to a defective product, you may be eligible to recover compensation for the burdens you have faced in relation to the injuries. You may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, lost future wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. If you are considering taking legal action, you should be aware of Maryland’s statute of limitations. If you wish to bring a lawsuit for a personal injury matter in Maryland, you have 3 years to do so. If you don’t take action within that time, you could be barred from taking legal action altogether.
