How You Can Receive Compensation For Your Damages
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a defective Frontier Wood Chipper, you may be eligible to file a claim for significant monetary compensation. These wood chippers, while they may cause severe injuries initially can also result in damages that go far beyond the physical. To put it simply hospitalization is expensive, and often the treatments required for this kind of injuries can result in a mountain of debt that can be incredibly challenging to overcome alone. Fortunately, with the assistance of a skilled and experienced attorney, you could find all the compensation that you need to make a full recovery. However, the process of fighting manufacturing companies for the damages caused by their defective products can be somewhat challenging, and it is highly recommended that you understand the process of filing a claim.

For starters, all lawsuits involving defective products fall under product liability law. Product liability law dictates that the manufacturers of companies keep defective products out of the hands of their consumers. However, mistakes can happen and when they do consumers have the right to file a claim for compensation under product liability law as well. All lawsuits also fall under the time limit influenced by the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is defined as the period in which an injured party can bring their case to court. This statute can vary depending what state you’re in, so it is in your best interest that you seek representation from an attorney experienced in handling cases from the state where your accident occurred. For instance, in the state of California, injured parties have two years from the date the incident occurred to bring their case to court. If an injured party fails to bring their case within this designated time, they will more than likely find their case dismissed from court entirely.

Every product defect lawsuit requires that the plaintiff effectively place liability. Placing liability has its challenges in other kinds of suits, however, in suits filed against product manufacturers the process can take on a nature of its own. In most cases regarding product defects there is more than one company involved in bringing a product from the design floor to retail store, and as such any of these companies can be held liable for the damages. Being able to place liability on any one of these companies effectively is vital to the outcome of your case. Listed below are the kinds of defects that could be present in your case, and what company would be responsible for said defect:

  • Design Defects: These are the defects that can occur before the product is sent to the assembly line. The defects that occur in this stage of production are faults that make the product inherently dangerous. In most cases, these defects can lead to full-scale product recalls, and the company which organized the design of the product could be held liable for the damages.
  • Manufacturing Defects: These defects typically occur on the assembly line of the product. They can range from minor mistakes along the manufacturing chain to reoccurring mistakes that can result in wide-spread recalls. In these instances, the manufacturing company could be deemed responsible for the damages.
  • Marketing Defects: These defects occur during the marketing of a specific product. These defects include things like improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.

Victims of product defects also have the option of filing a class action lawsuit. Class action lawsuits are lawsuits that involve multiple parties that have been similarly injured by the same product or source. In most cases, class action lawsuits offer victims a chance to pursue legal action against a large company or organization that would be difficult to take on alone. Class action lawsuits can also lessen the burden imposed by exuberant legal expenses which can occur when suing a large company alone. However, those who file class action lawsuits typically don’t receive the same compensation amount as those who pursued compensation through other legal means. For this reason, it is in your best interest to seek assistance from an attorney well-versed on the variety of ways a product defect lawsuit can be filed. A skilled legal representative can help you build your case, file your claim, and guide you down the best path for you and your case.
