Hartford Defective Product Lawyer
Holding Negligent Manufacturers Liable
When you purchase a product or device, the last thing you expect is for it to malfunction and cause you injury, especially if it is relatively new. You also may expect to be compensated for such an injury should it occur. However, it can be very difficult to get full compensation because companies may try to shift liability away from themselves, especially if the product is no longer under any warranty. You could still get compensation for a defective product, however, if the accident was entirely a result of the product and no manner of recklessness, negligence, or foul play was involved on your part.
To make sure that you build a strong case in order to fight the manufacturer or vendor of the faulty item, get legal counsel and representation from a qualified Hartford personal injury lawyer. He or she will have detailed training and knowledge of all relative personal injury and defective product laws and could help you prove that the company, not you, is liable for your injuries and should pay for the damage. By hiring an injury attorney in Hartford your chances of winning the highest possible payout for your case will be significantly better.
What is the Difference Between a Defective Product and a Bad Product?
It is important to differentiate between a poor-functioning product and a potentially dangerous defective product. Products may be deemed poor-functioning when they do not perform as promised from their packaging and/or marketing. Additionally, products with defects may not always be dangerous. A dangerous product, on the other hand, simply means that it could be harmful to anyone using it.
Examples of bad/poor-functioning products include new pens with little-to-no ink, reusable straws with cracks in the sides, etc., whereas dangerously defective products may include leaking butane lighters, children's toys with faulty hinges or springs, and more.
