Circeo Law Firm’s Product Liability Lawyers Will Help Fight for Compensation If You Were Injured By a Defective Product
Injuries and death from faulty, defective, or dangerous merchandise are deeply traumatizing and tragic. A skilled Kentucky products liability lawyer can help you make sense of an incident and develop a plan to obtain compensation.
Statistics show hundreds of reports of injuries from consumer products every year, which likely only scratches the surface of the harm caused by unsafe or defective items. Indeed, the National Safety Council pointed to 11 million emergency department visits in 2020 alone for product-related injuries.
Victims can be left with emotional and physical scars when both household and commercial products break, explode, or sicken them with toxic chemicals.
Circeo Law Firm closely examines every aspect of your products liability case to craft an effective legal response, maximizing your compensation.
What is a Product Liability Case in Kentucky?
Products liability laws are designed to keep the public safe. Therefore, these cases vary significantly from other personal injury cases. Examples of this type of case include, but are not limited to:
- Design defects that make the product dangerous even when it is used according to instructions
- Lack of appropriate safety devices within the product, such as an automatic shutoff on an electric kettle
- Toxic chemicals, including products or equipment made with restricted or banned materials
- Failure to warn about a product’s risks, such as through improper or insufficient labeling
Manufacturers have an obligation to warn consumers about foreseeable dangers, and mistakes like manufacturing errors or missing parts are far from unavoidable.
Why Choose a Kentucky Product Liability Lawyer from Circeo Law Firm?
Products liability cases require skilled lawyers to determine fault in a product’s complicated and multi-layered manufacturing, distribution, and sales chain.
Liability is typically determined by looking at the characteristics of the product itself and the actions of the manufacturer, seller, and distributor.
