We interact with many products every day. We should trust that everything we use, wear, consume, or buy will not harm us. When it does, someone should be responsible. 

 

The attorneys at Jinks, Crow & Dickson are experienced consumer lawyers who handle cases involving defective products include any tangible good that we buy as consumers, including food, cosmetics, clothing, cars, appliances, and pharmaceuticals. 

If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective consumer product, contact us today to schedule a free and confidential consultation. 

Any Unsafe Consumer Product Can Cause Injury

While a high percentage of the things we buy are safe, consumer products are a major source of injury in the United States. According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, lawnmowers recently caused more than 83,000 injuries in just one year, and toys injured more than 253,000 children. These are just two examples of everyday products that can cause injury – there are countless more.

 

Our consumer lawyers represent people who have been injured by a wide range of consumer products, including, but not limited to:

Consumer Law Protects Consumers

A product liability lawsuit can take on a number of forms and involve multiple claims. There are three major types of products liability cases:

  • Design defect – In a design defect case, the plaintiff alleges that a particular product possesses a design flaw that makes it dangerous.

  • Manufacturing defect – A manufacturing defect case is a little different. It involves allegations that somewhere in the manufacturing process a problem occurred that resulted in the production of dangerous versions of an otherwise safe product.

  • Failure to warn – In a failure to warn case, a victim may allege that although a product may have been designed or manufactured correctly, it lacked adequate warnings that would have allowed people to understand an inherent danger associated with using the product.

 

These theories are not mutually exclusive, meaning that a plaintiff injured by a product may bring their case under more than one of these theories. When a case is first filed, it may be impossible to know whether the defect was in the design or manufacture of a product until sufficient discovery is conducted.

 

The basic law that governs product liability claims in Alabama is called the Alabama Extended Manufacturer's Liability Doctrine (AEMLD). The AEMLD is not a specific statute, but it is a series of cases handed down by Alabama courts that have specified the requirements for a product liability lawsuit. In addition to the AEMLD, there are other claims that people who have been injured by a defective product may be able to bring. Because of the complex nature of product liability law, always contact an experienced products liability attorney if you believe that you have been injured by an unsafe or defective product.

 

Injured consumers who bring a successful consumer product lawsuit are entitled to compensatory damages and, in some cases, punitive damages where a defendant’s actions have been particularly egregious. Families of Alabama residents who have been killed by a defective product are entitled only to seek only punitive damages.

The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors.
