Design, Manufacturing And Repair Defects
Due to design flaws or manufacturing errors, some products are dangerously defective and should never have entered the marketplace in the first place. Each year, unsafe products seriously injure many people, and, tragically, products with design flaws or manufacturing defects also cause a significant number of wrongful deaths. If a product caused your personal injury, you may be entitled to recover damages from the manufacturer, distributor, seller or installer. If your injury was the result of negligent repair of the product, you may be entitled to recover damages from the person or company that performed the repair.
In some cases, defective products contribute to accidents caused by more than one factor. For example, an auto accident may occur when a person fails to brake in time to avoid hitting another vehicle. Subsequently, a flaw in the vehicle’s braking system may also be discovered. In this situation, the car manufacturer may be responsible for injuries caused by the defect.
Similarly, if a mechanic fails to properly repair a vehicle and the failure contributes to an accident, you may be entitled to recover from the mechanic and/or their repair shop as well as from the at-fault driver. We will thoroughly assess the circumstances surrounding your accident so that you recover from every liable party.
Establishing A Products Liability Claim
If you have been harmed by a product, seek advice from an experienced products liability attorney as soon as possible. Due to statutes of limitations in Oregon, you have a limited time to file a claim before your rights are lost. In most cases, you only have two years from the time that you discover the injury to file your claim.
Try to save any evidence of what happened, such as what remains of the product that injured you, along with any packaging that came with it. This kind of evidence is important for evaluating your case and making a successful claim for damages.
