Manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their products prior to distribution. If a person is injured or killed as the result of a defective product, the responsible party may be held liable for damages. You should not have to endure harm from a new product, when you are following the guidelines for intended use, but if you are injured, you can count on Emerson Straw to fight for you. Retail wares and commodities should make our lives easier, not put us in harm’s way.
Defective products encompass a multitude of things including children’s toys, household products, medication, and faulty equipment. In product liability cases, one or more of these three things must be demonstrated: defective manufacturing, defective design, or improper instructions and safety warnings. No matter what kind of injury you’ve sustained, our legal team will work hard to build a strong case on your behalf.
In many instances, the responsible party had prior knowledge of the dangerous condition and did not correct the problem to prevent consumers from being injured. If proven, this shows that the party was negligent by ignoring the problem and allowing it to cause harm to other individuals exposed to the defective product. Manufacturers should be held to higher standards, and be punished when their actions result in someone’s injury or death.
