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

If you or a loved one suffers a serious injury due to exposure to a defective product, it’s a good idea to consult with a skilled Tulsa defective products lawyer. A major manufacturer will have the resources to hire corporate lawyers to try to get their business off the hook for a malfunction or a design flaw. They’ll be seeking ways to blame you for what happened or ways to cast doubt on the seriousness of your injury and the support you’ll need to recover.

Your Oklahoma attorney is your safeguard against these shady practices. Your Ylla|Gosney representative fully investigates the product that caused your family harm. Your lawyer looks into every business that had a part in designing, manufacturing, selling, and installing the product. With strong evidence in hand, your lawyer demands the maximum in compensation possible so you can heal physically and financially.

Defective Products Hazards and Injuries

Anything you purchase or have delivered to your home could leave you or a family member exposed to a frightening risk. Every year we see products that were approved for public use and sold at Walmart or on Amazon end up hurting people. Sometimes the defects that cause injury are widespread and result in recalls. Sometimes the recalls come too late to save hundreds or thousands of victims.

You don’t have to look too far, to see things around that house that could end up hurting a family member. Tools that have faulty safety switches can endanger someone in your yard. Heaters improperly installed or with electrical issues may put your children at risk.

These are just a few of the other risks that manufacturers sometimes force upon us:

  • Burns from heaters that catch fire or tools that get too hot
  • Chemical burns
  • Lung damage from breathing in toxic fumes
  • Death from Carbon Monoxide poisoning
  • Deep cuts or burns from malfunctioning tools and appliances
  • Eye injuries
  • Poisoning from medication or medical devices
  • Toys and baby furniture, like highchairs, that injure children
  • Hazardous leaks from improperly installed gas lines
  • Car crashes caused by faulty automobile parts
  • Foodborne illnesses caused by out-of-date groceries

We bring these products into our homes because the makers and retailers say they are safe and will make our lives better. But they owe customers and clients a “duty of care” to back up those claims. They must test products for absolute safety before they hit the market. Companies must not ignore warning signs about safety issues. If a product comes with an inherent risk or is dangerous when used a certain way, companies must properly warn consumers.

When these duties and others are ignored and someone gets hurt, businesses must be held liable for their negligence. Patients must be able to count on money to pay their medical bills and compensation to support their families while they must miss time at work. A Ylla|Goseny representative stands up to giant corporations and their insurance adjusters to make sure victims get what they need to pay for the best care available. We also seek justice against reckless and uncaring corporations.

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

There may be more than one individual or corporation that would have to support you after their products cause a serious injury. 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
  • A landlord who supplies faulty fixtures or appliances

Lawyers for these at-fault parties may claim that you were using a product in a manner that wasn’t intended, but your experienced Tulsa lawyer will be ready to prove that it was a manufacturer’s negligence that was to blame.

Compensation Available After a Defective Products Accident

Careless corporate owners and store chains must be held liable for the harm they cause. That means making sure every hardship you and your family endure is included in an injury claim. The potential for years of medical care and even additional surgeries ahead must also factor into any settlement offer from an insurance company.

Your Ylla|Gosney legal representative makes sure the insurance adjuster is aware of everything you’ve experienced and could experience. 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 of travel costs to and from doctor visits
  • Support for physical pain
  • Support for emotional trauma
  • Support for the patient’s loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium (loss of intimacy with a spouse due to injury)
  • 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.
