When you purchase a product, do you expect it to lead to injuries? Consumers purchase products with the expectation that the products are safe for use. Unfortunately, many companies negligently make defective products available for consumers to purchase. Therefore, many consumers are harmed by defective products that should have never been released to the public.

Injuries Sustained because of Defective Products
The injuries caused by defective products can vary depending on the type of defect present in the products. Some defects create risks for electrical shock, fires, falls, suffocation, and lacerations, for example. Therefore, the injuries sustained can range from minor cuts to brain damage, for instance. Whatever the case, it is essential that victims are medically treated for their injuries to create a direct correlation between the injuries sustained and the defective product.
The Right to File a Claim
Many people believe that they cannot pursue legal action against the company which created and released the defective product. Unfortunately, many victims believe that they caused their injuries by failing to follow the product instructions, using the product incorrectly, or failing to follow any warnings. Although some people could be liable for their injuries, many products are defective as a direct result of the company’s negligence. If there was a defect in the product’s design, labeling, or manufacturing, victims could file a lawsuit after sustaining injuries.
Some confusion arises when companies issue recalls for their defective products. Many consumers believe that a recall releases liability for their injuries, and they believe that they must do as the recall states. Although you should stop using the defective product as soon as possible, you should not agree to any offers of free repairs or refunds for the defective product. If you were injured by the defective product, repairing or altering the product in any way could destroy vital evidence. If you return the product for a refund, you would also be surrendering the main evidence for your claim. If you were injured by a defective product, you must do the following to ensure the success of your claim:
- Seek medical attention
- Do not repair or alter the defective product
- Do not return the defective product for a refund
- Keep records of all documents related to the defective product
If you preserve evidence by following the four points above, you should be ready to speak with our experienced defective product attorneys. Our attorneys will evaluate your claim and give you all the information you need to win your lawsuit.
Compensation Available for Your Claim
If you file a product liability lawsuit for a defective product, you might be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. Many victims of defective products are eligible to recover the following categories of compensation:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Punitive damagese
Plaintiffs might be eligible to recover other forms of compensation if the defective product resulted in the wrongful death of a victim. These additional forms of compensation include funeral and burial costs as well as the loss of consortium.

The Statute of Limitations
The victims of defective products are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. Therefore, they must file their claims within two years of their incident with the defective product. The statute of limitations is a strict timeline; however, some exceptions which toll, pause, or extend the statute of limitations might apply. If plaintiffs do not file their claims within their deadline to sue, they might lose their right to file a lawsuit. For more information about the statute of limitations and exceptions that might apply to your claim, you must contact our defective product attorneys at Bed Bug Legal Group as soon as possible.
