Whether it be a drug with insufficient or fraudulent warnings (like Vioxx) or an airbag that causes injury or any other type of product that is defective, one thing is clear: bad products cause serious injuries.
The law provides for strict liability for products which injure people for reasons such as 1) designed defectively or 2) produced defectively or 3) failure to warn of a danger. Should any of these problems result in an injury, you need a lawyer who handles these complicated cases.
Defective products range from household goods to prescription drugs to professional commercial machinery and tools. It is possible to be injured at work and still have a “3rd party case” against a manufacturer for an injury caused by a defective product. Any time a defective product causes injury the victim can sue, even if it happens in Bhopal, India (remember the Union Carbide disaster).
Some defective products like Asbestos and Breast implants result in class action settlement whereby the victim’s lawyer can easily obtain a prompt “administrative settlement” since liability has already been admitted. Ask us for free advice!
