At the Law Offices of Van Dorn, Curtiss & Rousseau, we believe that when you buy a product you should be able to trust that the product is safe. It’s the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that their goods and services meet accepted standards for quality and safety. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
While you may feel cheated out of your money after purchasing a defective product, there are other far more harmful effects. Often, defective products are extremely hazardous and can cause serious injuries or even death, all because of the fact that the manufacturer was negligent in distributing a dangerous product.
If you or a loved one suffered severe injury due to a defective product, please schedule a free consultation with the Law Offices of Van Dorn, Curtiss & Rousseau by calling (866) 933-6115 today.
Types of Defective Products
A defective product can cause more than frustration. It can lead to serious injuries, cause damage, and even death. Defective products come in many forms. Consumers have been known to become seriously hurt from:
- Dangerous drugs
- Defective automobiles
- Recalled children’s products
- Malfunctioning equipment or machinery
If a dangerous product has injured you or a family member, you need to be aware of the factors involved in a product liability claim. Our experienced attorneys have a long history representing clients injured by defective products. We know firsthand the lengths to which large corporate retailers, manufacturers, and wholesalers will go to in order to protect their own financial interests.
Building Your Defective Product Claim
Product liability law protects you as a consumer against serious defects on the part of manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers–defects that can result in damages or serious personal injuries. Each product liability case is intricate and unique, and the attorneys at Van Dorn, Curtiss & Rousseau look forward to assessing, planning, and executing a legal strategy that will recover all of the compensation necessary to help you get back on your feet.
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in both New Hampshire and Vermont. Our firm has years of dealing with the four types of product liability:
- Strict liability
- Breach of warranty
In the event that a manufacturer or seller has made false claims regarding a product and its safety, or has refused to uphold any promises (such as guarantees or warranties) regarding a product, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to prove these breaches of contract in a courtroom.
Because of the complexity of defective product cases, product liability claims can be hard to prove. The manufacturer or other responsible party will do everything in their power to discredit your claim, as they do not want to open themselves up to the liability involved in a dangerous product case.
There will be many things that you have to prove, such as:
- The product was defective in some way
- The defect caused your injury
- You suffered losses
- At the time of injury, you were using the product as intended
