New Haven Defective Products Lawyers

Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Poor Judgement

Did you suffer serious injuries or was your loved one killed by a defective product in New Haven or a surrounding area of Connecticut? You may be entitled to compensation for all of your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. Defective product claims can be incredibly complex, and many manufacturers will quickly claim that accidents were the result of a consumer’s negligence. You will want to make sure that you have somebody on your side who understands how product liability works in Connecticut.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers has decades of experience in handling various types of product liability claims. We help people harmed by defective products recover all of the compensation they need and deserve. Do not delay in seeking legal representation for assistance with your defective product claim. You can have our New Haven defective product attorneys review your case and discuss all of your legal options when you call 1-800-PERKINS or (203) 397-1283 if you live outside Connecticut to take advantage of a free consultation.

Do I Need A Defective Products Lawyer?

The first reason you will want to have an attorney is so an independent investigation can be conducted to determine the actual cause of your injuries. You need to understand how the product you were using became defective and who would be liable for your injuries.

You also want a lawyer to handle your case because they will be able to understand the real value of your claim and negotiate a settlement that provides for your full lifetime of needs. Without an attorney, most insurance companies aggressively push victims into accepting settlements that are much less than what they are entitled to.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers will not only be able to negotiate a fair and full settlement, but we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit when an insurer refuses to provide adequate compensation. We will be committed to helping you get justice.

Your lawyer will have a much better understanding of the types of evidence that will need to be presented to recover compensation successfully, as proof of defects can often be a very tricky area of law to navigate. When any kind of defective product injures you, you should make sure to save whatever remains of that product and store it in a location in which it will not harm any other people.

Types of Defective Product Cases We Handle

Connecticut’s Product Liability Act allows for defective product claims based on negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. In general, the most common claims for product liability actions are usually:

  • Design Defect — When a product is defectively designed, then all products and, thus, all users are susceptible to the same risks. A design defect is an error in the underlying fundamental design of a product.
  • Manufacturing Defect — A manufacturing defect may be isolated to a single product or batch of products. In such cases, some error in the construction of the product caused it to be defective.
  • Failure to Warn — Some manufacturers or retailers may be liable for not warning consumers about potentially dangerous uses of products.

Product liability claims could involve any one of the several thousands of consumer products. Some of the most common accidents include tires, medical devices, car seats, pharmaceutical drugs, construction tools or equipment, motor vehicle parts, children’s toys, appliances, and cosmetics.

Defective Product Statistics

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there were an estimated 240,000 toy-related injuries treated in emergency departments in 2016. The CPSC received seven reports of toy-related deaths that occurred in 2016 among children younger than 12 years of age.

The CPSC retorted there were 62,300 emergency department-treated injuries associated with nursery products among children younger than five years of age in 2016. There were 284 deaths associated with nursery products among children younger than five years of age between 2012 and 2014.

The CPSC investigated 34 deaths associated with playground equipment from 2009 to 2014. Of these incidents, 19 deaths involved hangings or other asphyxiations, 12 were the result of a second product, five involved slides, five were associated with swings, and head or neck impact injuries caused eight deaths.

Between 2010 and 2013, the CPSC reported an estimated average of 48 electrocution fatalities associated with consumer products. In 2010, there were 70 consumer product-related electrocutions, but each 2011, 2012, and 2013 involved 40 such fatalities.

From 2014 through 2016, an estimated 30,700 people were treated annually in emergency departments for product instability or tip-over injuries related to televisions, furniture, and appliances according to the CPSC. Furniture had the most number of injuries with 19,500 or 64 percent, followed by televisions with 10,100 injuries or 33 percent, and appliances with 1,100 injuries or 3 percent.
