Product liability law helps victims protect their rights

When consumers in Nashville are injured by dangerous products, they are often forced to deal with numerous stressful issues. These can include soaring medical bills, the inability to work, lost wages and serious psychological trauma. At Bart Durham Injury Law, we understand how difficult it can be to work thought these problems, and we are committed to helping our clients find legal solutions to the financial, emotional and psychological issues that can stem from the use of defective products.

It used to be that victims of products that contained design and manufacturing defects had no legal recourse for their injuries. This kind of mentality is now in the past. Under current products liability laws, victims are able to sue the manufacturers and distributors that are responsible for placing defective products in the market stream. The rationale behind these laws is that accountability should rest with the commercial interests that are in the best position to keep products safe for consumer use.

Depending on their legal bases, product liability claims can have different proof requirements and expectations of compensation. Generally speaking, however, successful plaintiffs can receive damages for injuries or deaths that resulted from the use of defective products. This compensation can include financial losses such as medical expenses, lost wages and property damage. Awarded damages can also address emotional issues such as pain and suffering.

Obtaining compensation is important for injured parties, but product liability law provides much more than monetary damages. These laws also give victims a voice, allowing them to hold manufacturers, sellers and distributors accountable for the safety of their products. This in and of itself can be a worthwhile reason to pursue product liability lawsuits against a negligent manufacturer.
