What Constitutes a Defective Products Liability Case in Nevada?
Over the past decade Benson & Bingham has been helping personal injury victims with on-the-job and at-home injuries caused by defective products. However, most personal injury victims are unsure if they have a case against a product manufacturer.
In focusing on a product we look at several aspects to determine whether or not that product is defective. First, did the defect exist at the time the product was designed. In other words, does this product have a design defect. Even if the product came off the manufacturing line as it was designed, it is still defective in its original design. Secondly, has a safely designed product become dangerous because the manufacturer did not follow plans or specifications while making the actual product. Third, we look to see if the product has inadequate directions or warnings notifying the user of the potential dangers associated with the product. Any product can be defective ranging from infant or baby car seats, baby toys, lawnmowers, car tires, automobiles, and even industrial machinery.
Often Benson & Bingham will retain engineering experts to determine whether or not you have a products liability case. In some circumstances the manufacturer will be held to a “strict product liability” standard rather than a “negligence” standard. Many victims of a defective product case suffer serious injury or death, including loss of a limb, loss of sight, paralysis, burns, or brain damage.
