As a buyer, you have rights when purchasing a product. You should not have to fear harm when using the item as intended, as it is the responsibility of companies to develop and produce safe goods.
If they fail to fulfill this duty and you suffer injuries because of a faulty product, contact a Spring Valley defective products lawyer. At LVNV Legal, our experienced attorneys can advise you on pursuing a claim for compensation from the at-fault company.
Product liability is defined as liability for damages resulting from any personal injury, death, emotional harm, consequential economic damage, or property damage. This includes damages arising out of the manufacture, design, importation, distribution, packaging, labeling, lease, or sale of a product.
Multiple parties may interact with a product before it hits the shelves of a store or retailer. If one of these parties was negligent and their actions caused your injury, they may be found liable. The product’s producer, wholesaler, and distributor are all potentially responsible parties.
There are many everyday objects or devices commonly cited in defective product claims. Our experienced product liability lawyers frequently handle local cases involving:
If the injured party can show that their injuries were caused by defects in the design or manufacture of the product, the manufacturer could be held responsible. This is where the advice of a local defective products attorney can be extremely useful.
A party injured by a defective product may have the right to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributor, depending on the type of defect. The two most prevalent types are design defects and manufacturing defects.
A design defect is a flaw in a product’s initial blueprint that makes it inherently dangerous and puts users at risk. When determining if there is a design defect in a product, the skilled lawyers at our firm will investigate three questions:
A manufacturing defect is caused by an error in the manufacturing process. Under the strict liability theory, a manufacturer is liable for any manufacturing defects. Our skilled lawyer can investigate a defective product in Spring Valley to determine if any negligence occurred during the manufacturing process.
Injuries caused by defective goods could warrant compensatory, extraordinary, or punitive damages. Compensatory damages aim to make the injured person whole again after the accident. Special damages compensate for any observable out-of-pocket expenses or financial losses. Any losses related to a victim’s injuries could be recovered in a product liability claim.
If a lawsuit is successful, the plaintiff may be entitled to the following types of compensation:
Finally, punitive damages may be appropriate in exceptional circumstances. When a manufacturer’s negligence is deemed especially detrimental, punitive damages can be awarded at the judge’s discretion. The defective product attorneys at our Spring Valley office can further explain what damages may be available in a particular case.
You should not have to suffer financially because of the harm caused by a dangerous product. If you suspect your injuries resulted from a defective item, consult LVNV Legal about holding the company or manufacturer responsible. A Spring Valley defective products lawyer at our firm will assess your potential claim and advise on your legal options. Call today to schedule a consultation and get the help you need.
I consulted with Mr. Segal on a business matter, and found him to be very detail-oriented and analytical. His legal knowledge and thorough analysis enable him to strategically position clients for success. I also found that he conducts himself in a professional manner and truly cares about his clients' interests.
Shoham's keen analytical mind, strong business sense and straightforward approach to litigation makes him a strong force to be reckoned with if you ever have to face him in the courtroom, and an even stronger ally to have when working on a case with complex legal issues. I endorse this lawyer.
Mr. Segal has handled several real estate deals for our company. His service is always professional, efficient and prompt. His response time is very quick and helpful. looking forward for working with him in the future. Best experience!
Shoham was kind, patient and knowledgeable in explaining how to qualify my mother for Medicaid long term care. I did not even know my mother was eligible. There are so many aspects to paying for long term care that so many people — including myself — do not know about. One would be lucky to have this firm in your corner navigating you through it.
Knowledgeable, professional and patient. Mr. Segal was always available to us and was able to take care of all of my family’s legal needs. I am so grateful that he was there to guide us through everything. Highly recommended!
Shoham has been handling my foreclosure case and I am beyond satisfied with the results so far. Beyond being very knowledgeable and professional, Shoham is very accessible and his demeanor is of an attorney who thoroughly calculates and strategizes his every move. I highly recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer for any sort of litigation.
My parents don't know much about the best way (or any way) to plan their estate. My sister and I have been trying to get them to figure things out for a decade but they never do because it made them too nervous. I got recommended to Mr Segal by a friend and now the ball has started rolling! He made my parents feel comfortable...
