Before releasing a product into the marketplace, manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for consumer use. At the very least, they must include safety warnings about any possible hazards associated with the product. Unfortunately, some manufacturers fail to properly test their products or include adequate safety warnings, leaving millions of Americans susceptible to serious injuries or even death.
When a person is injured by a defective product, they can hold the manufacturer responsible for their suffering. By speaking with a product liability attorney, the injured party can file a claim to seek damages for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering associated with the defective product. For instance, individuals who were injured by the Yamaha Rhino All Terrain Vehicle are now suing the company for releasing an ATV vehicle to the public that is overly susceptible to rollovers.
