Were you hurt by a defective or dangerous product?

You will want to make sure you have the necessary assistance with your defective product claim. Call (203) 437-6190 to have our Waterbury dangerous product lawyers provide a complete evaluation of your case during a free consultation.

Do I Need A Defective Products Lawyer?

Some people may be able to pinpoint exactly what went wrong with a product that caused their injuries, but many others often have no idea how these accidents occur. If a defective product injures you, you want to try to save anything that remains of the product and make sure to keep it somewhere safe in which other people can not access the product.

One of the first reasons you will want to contact an attorney is so you can have an independent investigation performed into your accident. An experienced lawyer will not only determine that exact nature of a product defect, but they can also identify all possible liable parties.

Many companies refuse to pay product liability claims, but their insurance companies can become more willing to negotiate when your attorney has collected sufficient evidence to support your legal claim. When you have an attorney, you have somebody who knows the true value of your case and works to help you recover all of the compensation you need and deserve.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can negotiate for a settlement that accounts for all of your past, present, and future needs. If an insurance company is unwilling to provide adequate compensation, our firm can then file a lawsuit.

Types of Defective Product Cases We Handle

The types of defective product claims allowed for under Connecticut’s Product Liability Act include those based on negligence, strict liability and breach of warranty. The most frequent types of product liability claims are usually one of the following:

  • Design Defect — A defectively designed product is perhaps the most harmful because a flaw with product’s inherent design means all users of the product are exposed to the same risks.
  • Manufacturing Defect — If a product is defective because of some error in the manufacturing, then the defect may be entirely isolated or limited to a specific batch of products.
  • Failure to Warn — In some product liability actions, consumers may have valid claims against manufacturers for not specifically warning about seemingly innocent uses of a product that may be potentially dangerous.

Virtually any product has the potential to be defective. Some of the most common items involved in product liability claims include, but are not limited to motor vehicle parts, construction tools or equipment, cosmetics, children’s toys, tires, appliances, medical devices, pharmaceutical drugs, and car seats.

Defective Products: How Often Does This Happen?

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that there were approximately 240,000 toy-related injuries treated in emergency departments in 2016. Seven reports of toy-related deaths among children younger than 12 years of age that year were received by the CPSC.

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

The CPSC reported that it investigated 34 deaths associated with playground equipment from 2009 to 2014. In 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.

The CPSC reported an estimated average of 48 electrocution fatalities associated with consumer products between 2010 and 2013. There were 70 consumer product-related electrocutions in 2010, but each 2011, 2012, and 2013 involved 40 such fatalities.

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, according to the CPSC.
