Product liability is the area of law involving the responsibilities of manufacturers and distributors over the safety of their products. Product liability laws allow injured plaintiffs to recover compensation for the injuries and damages defective products cause. Civil laws help to hold manufacturers accountable for their actions and mistakes.

Your lawyer can use proven legal strategies to argue your claim to damages and pursue maximum financial recovery on your behalf. While you concentrate on recovering, your product liability lawyer will take care of the legal side of things.
Manufacturing companies debut defective and dangerous items every day. Negligent companies may not notice defects, while others intentionally conceal known hazards to save money. Even if a manufacturing company does everything correctly, if one of its products contains a defect and injures a consumer, it will be liable for damages under strict product liability laws. Consumers can bring product liability claims based on any type of defective or dangerously designed product.
Most product liability claims involve one of three types of defects. The first is a design flaw, in which the product has an inherently unsafe design even if manufactured correctly. The second is a manufacturing error, or a mistake made during the product’s creation or assembly that makes it unreasonably dangerous. The third is a marketing defect, or an issue with the item’s packaging or advertising that could harm consumers. If the product that injured you contains one of these defects, you may have grounds for a strict product liability claim.
In Nevada, you have four years from the date of your accident or the date you discover your product-related injuries to file a product liability claim. If you fail to bring a claim within this timeframe, you may give up the right to file. A Henderson personal injury lawyer from The Janda Law Firm can help you meet your deadline and follow all the requirements for filing. Our lawyers can also help you achieve maximum possible compensation using aggressive legal strategies.
A successful lawsuit against a product manufacturer for a dangerous defect could end in compensation for your medical bills (past and future), lost wages, lost capacity to earn, disability or disfigurement costs, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, property damages, legal fees, and more.
