Do I Need a Lawyer After Being Hurt by a Defective Product?

If a tool malfunction or an appliance glitch manages to hurt you or a loved one, you’ll need to assess how serious the injuries are. If you end up with only very minor scrapes or cuts, you may not need the help of a lawyer to get your money back or secure a replacement.

But when an injury is more serious, like burns, deep puncture wounds, or broken bones, you may need an Oklahoma defective products lawyer to protect your interests as you heal. When doctor bills will be high, liability insurance companies work very hard to avoid taking the blame for an accident. Adjusters can try to say you used the product in a way that wasn’t intended to escape having to pay you compensation. They may find doctors who will downplay the seriousness of your injuries to limit what insurers must provide in a settlement check.

Your Oklahoma attorney is your safeguard against these shady practices. Your Ylla|Gosney representative fully investigates the product that caused your family harm and every business that designed, manufactured, sold, and installed the product. Then your lawyer demands the maximum in compensation possible so you can heal physically and financially.

Defective Product Dangers

A heater can cause a fire, cause burn wounds, or even a Carbon Monoxide poisoning risk. Tools might come out of the box with electrical problems. You might receive a shock. A safety switch might fail, leaving you vulnerable to a puncture wound or cut.

A faulty product may expose someone in your family to a harmful chemical or fumes. These are a few of the products you may bring back to your home that can have flaws that cause real harm:

  • Appliances
  • Household Tools
  • Yard and Lawn Tools and chemicals
  • Gas Lines
  • Heaters and AC Units
  • Toy
  • Highchairs
  • Car parts
  • Medical device defect

The injuries caused by a malfunction in something you use every day can be devastating. A wound may be immediate or harm may build up over time. Victims could require support for their current medical bills and for the care they’ll need in the years ahead for a long-term injury. Your attorney makes sure these factors are considered when negotiating with an insurance company over what you should receive for what you and your family have been through. If a company and an insurer are unwilling to provide what’s fair in a settlement, your lawyer will have evidence ready to file a lawsuit and take the business to court.

Who Is Responsible If I’m Hurt By a Defective Product?

Product liability laws are based on the “duty of care” manufacturers and retailers must show to their clients and customers. Businesses must take every precaution to protect all who come into contact with a product.

When they fail in this duty and you get hurt, you can ask for injury support as you heal and are unable to work. And there may be more than one individual or corporation that would have to provide you with money to rebuild your life. A defective products lawyer helps you determine every party that should be contributing compensation to your full recovery.

These are just some of the entities who may have to help you while you are down with an injury:

  • Designers of product
  • Manufacturers
  • Marketers of product
  • Stores that sell the product
  • Companies that install products

Unfortunately, major corporations can afford corporate lawyers to help them wiggle out of liability for the mistakes they make. Victims can be treated unfairly and even embarrassed by the tactics teams of lawyers will try. When you are going up against corporate attorneys, make sure you have a lawyer of your own who can hold a business accountable and make sure you receive fair and respectful treatment.

Failure to Warn Claims Over Oklahoma Defective Products Injuries

The individual owners or corporations behind these products can be held accountable for manufacturing and selling a defective product. They may face liability for failing to do enough testing on products or failing to acknowledge known safety issues.

Companies and corporations are also liable when they don’t properly warn customers about the risks of using a product. A “failure to warn” claim can be filed over missing warning stickers or a lack of warnings in instruction manuals. Neglect in warning patients about the side effects of certain prescription drugs is another common failure to warn claim.

Compensation Available After a Defective Products Accident

Your lawyer prepares your insurance claim by backing it up with strong evidence and then including a complete list of every hardship a malfunctioning product causes your family. That list is a critical step because anything left off won’t contribute to your injury settlement check. The damages omitted often become costs you’d have to pay out of pocket.

Your Ylla|Gosney legal representative makes sure the insurance adjuster is aware of everything you’ve endured. Your lawyer will also demand compensation for some things you may not have known could earn you additional support.

  • Hospital and rehabilitation cost totals
  • Estimates on lifelong support for a permanent disability or a disfigurement
  • Totals on travel costs to and from doctor visits
  • Support for physical pain
  • Support for emotional trauma
  • Totals on your lost paychecks and benefits while you miss work
  • Wrongful Death Support. A severe burn or a deep cut or puncture wound can end up claiming a life in a tragic accident. In these cases, family members of the victim can file wrongful death claims and seek support for funeral costs and any leftover medical bills. Families must also get help in replacing the income the deceased may have provided the family each week.
