Companies are responsible for providing safe and reliable products to consumers. Product liability laws have been established to help protect consumers from unsafe products and the injuries or illnesses that they may cause. Most recalls are issued after several complaints are made to the company about their faulty product. However, injuries or illnesses from these products can result in large medical bills for consumers before they were warned about the product. This can pose a financial problem for any victim who sustains injuries or becomes sick. Always contact a product liability attorney if you have been injured or sickened by an unsafe product. An experienced attorney will investigate every aspect of your case and determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action for your medical expenses.
