Personal injury lawyers handle product liability cases for people injured by dangerous products and defective products. When products are poorly designed, badly manufactured, or improperly installed, serious injuries or death can result. Our Michigan personal injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. understand the effects these accidents can have on the victim and the victims’ family.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there are nearly 22,000 deaths and more than 29 million injuries related to consumer products each year. Government agencies should be checking these products to make sure they are safe for consumers before marketing the product for purchase, however sometimes some products might need a second look over for safety and fail to do so.
Michigan defective product lawsuits can include:
• Industrial machines
• Breast implants
• Children’s products (toys, car seats, strollers, etc.)
• Faulty brakes
• Hip and joint replacements
• Prescription drugs.
You may be able to recover damages to cover your medical bills, time lost from work and any property damage that was caused by the defective product; pain and suffering (damages for the pain that you endured as a result of your injury); and even punitive damages (if the defendants’ conduct was so egregious the courts may award damages that punish the defendant).
