How Does a Defective Product Injuries Claim Work?By Pyle Law, March 17 2022 3:43 pm
Defective product injuries can put your entire life on hold. Being compensated for the costs associated with your injury will help your financial stability and ability to support your family. Who should provide compensation for your injuries will depend on the cause. When a defective product causes your injuries, the manufacturer that produced and sold the defective item should be the responsible party.
In this article, we’ll explore the concept of product liability and when you can recover damages for your injuries that were caused by defective products. Consult with an experienced product liability lawyer from Pyle Law as soon as possible.
When you are injured by a defective product, generally, the manufacturer will be liable for the costs associated with your injuries. Companies have a duty to produce safe products. Manufacturers breach their duties when they do any of the following:
For example, if you purchased a lawnmower and used it as intended, a safely manufactured mower would not cause harm. The mower company properly warned you to stay clear of the sharp blades, and you follow those instructions. However, if there was a defect in the design of the mower, a blade might come loose and slice your leg, requiring emergency medical care. The mower company would be liable for the defective design and the harm you suffered.
Under Kansas product liability law, you can pursue compensation from the manufacturer by bringing a product liability claim. In limited circumstances, you might be able to seek compensation from a product seller, but Kansas law limits a seller’s liability in many cases. Your attorney can identify which claims you may or may not file to seek the compensation you deserve.
Many manufacturers are large corporations with extensive resources to avoid liability and defend against claims. Auto manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, toy manufacturers, and more are all possible companies you might face in a product liability case. You don’t want to face off with these corporations and corporate insurers on your own, and you want an attorney who will not back down to such large parties.

The companies that make and sell products generally have legal teams of their own to defend against claims concerning product liability. Having your own attorney helps to even the playing field and ensures that you collect the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
