When Consumer Products Aren't What They Seem

Danger In The Montana Marketplace

When you buy and use a product that's freely available in the marketplace, you trust that product has been adequately tested and is safe for use. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. If that product turns out to be dangerous and causes serious harm in the course of common use, it may be time to speak with a lawyer. You may be able to hold a number of parties responsible for your injuries, from the designer of the product to the manufacturer and also the seller.

More Than Defective Cars

Certain cars present an obvious example of how a person can be injured by a defective product. Faulty airbags, brakes or exploding gas tanks have all caused serious injury to consumers, resulting in lawsuits. Safety rails along highways have been designed in a way that makes them into spears in the event of an accident. But it's not just cars and related infrastructure that presents danger to consumers. Certain medical devices, for example, have been found to spread cancer, pass infectious disease and cause internal injuries, and have been subject to recall. Similarly, some prescription drugs have been found to cause serious harm. However you or a loved one has been injured by a product, you may be eligible to collect compensation to help pay for your medical bills and related costs.
