Being compensated for an unreasonably dangerous product

There's a large amount of trust placed in manufacturers and sellers that the products they provide will be safe for people in Hennepin. However, because the product is available on the market doesn't automatically mean that testing has been done to ensure that it is safe and won't cause consumer injury. It's important for consumers to understand that there might be an issue with any number of products that makes them dangerous.

When there is a manufacturing defect, a defective product or some other issue that makes any product a risk to have and use, those who were hurt deserve to be compensated for their medical costs and any potential long-term damage they suffer because of the negligence of those people who were involved with the product being on the market.

There are innumerable ways in which a defective product can end up in the hands of an unwitting consumer. These products run the gamut of use. There could be defective foods, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, defective vehicle parts and, perhaps worst of all, children's products and toys. Nothing can make a parent feel worse than giving a toy or using an item that was marketed for the use of children and having that product end up making a child sick or causing death.

Given the long-term damage that can result from an unreasonably dangerous product - no matter its function - those who might have been harmed but weren't can breathe a sigh of relief that they dodged that risk. Others might have suffered consumer injury and have accrued medical costs and, in a worst case scenario, had a loved one die because of a defect of some kind. If there is evidence or even the suspicion that a defective product led to injury or death, the victim or victim's family should immediately discuss the matter with a lawyer to consider filing a claim.
