Hartford Defective Products Lawyers

If you suffered severe injuries or any kind of defective product killed your loved one in Hartford or a surrounding area of Connecticut, you are likely dealing with many consequences of your accident. You may be overwhelmed with medical bills while struggling to return to work.

You are right to believe that the manufacturer of a defective product must cover all of the damages you have suffered, but you should know that most companies are prepared to deny liability in these cases. Victims are often told that they somehow misused a product and they are to blame for their injuries.

We have the resources necessary to handle class actions lawsuits of all sizes. You can have our Hartford defective products attorneys provide an honest and thorough evaluation of your case as soon as you call (860) 722-9923 or contact us online to receive a free consultation.

Do I Need A Defective Products Lawyer?

When a defective product has injured you, you may be tempted to think that there is no need for an attorney. People who attempt to handle these types of claims on their own usually learn rather quickly that the companies who might be defendants are prepared to deny liability and pay victims nothing.

You will want an attorney because they will know how to help you recover compensation for your injuries. The first benefit of hiring a lawyer is that they can conduct an independent investigation of your accident to figure out what the cause was and who is responsible while collecting vital evidence.

In some cases, an insurance company for the negligent party may reach out rather quickly to offer a proposed settlement. You should be extremely skeptical about any such offer, as most people realize soon after accepting such settlements that they are usually insufficient for covering future expenses, which victims then must pay out of pocket.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can evaluate all the merits of your case and determine what the actual value is. Our firm can negotiate for a fair and full settlement to your case, and we will file a lawsuit if an insurance company is unwilling to provide appropriate compensation.

Types of Defective Product Cases We Handle

Under Connecticut’s Product Liability Act, defective product claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. Most defective product action will involve one of three common types of claims:

  • Manufacturing Defect — A single error in the manufacturing process affecting only one product or batch of products. A far more limited number of people are susceptible to injuries in these cases
  • Design Defect — An error in the actual design of a product that makes it unsafe regardless of construction. All users of the product may be exposed to the same dangers, which makes these claims common subjects of class action lawsuits or multidistrict litigation (MDL).
  • Failure to Warn — When a product does not explicitly warn a user against specific innocent uses of the product likely to cause injury, then the manufacturer could also be liable for those injuries.

Common types of product liability actions include, but are not limited to children’s toys, tires, motor vehicle parts, car seats, medical devices, appliances, cosmetics, pharmaceutical drugs, and construction tools or equipment.

Defective Product Statistics

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported approximately 240,000 toy-related injuries treated in emergency departments in 2016, and seven reports of toy-related deaths among children younger than 12 years of age in 2016. The CPSC stated 34 deaths associated with playground equipment were investigated from 2009 to 2014, and the incidents included 19 hangings or other asphyxiations, 12 caused by second products, five slides, five swings, and eight head or neck impact injuries.

According to the CPSC, 62,300 emergency department-treated injuries were associated with nursery products among children younger than 5 years of age in 2016. Among that same age group between 2012 and 2014, there were 284 deaths associated with nursery products.

The CPSC reported an estimated average of 48 electrocution deaths associated with consumer products between 2010 and 2013. The CPSC reported an estimated 30,700 people were treated annually in emergency departments for product instability or tip-over injuries related to televisions, furniture, and appliances from 2014 through 2016, including 19,500 injuries associated with furniture, 10,100 injuries associated with televisions, and 1,100 injuries associated with appliances.
