Minneapolis Product Injury Lawyer

If you purchase a product for your own use or for a family member to use, you expect that product to work as promised. It’s upsetting if the product suddenly stops working or breaks for no apparent reason. Should that defective product end up injuring someone, though, it becomes a situation that’s far more serious than simply being upset about losing a little bit of money from the purchase of a product that doesn’t work.

You should not have to pay for your medical bills because a product failed and injured you. However, manufacturers and retailers aren’t necessarily going to just take your word for it about your injuries and about how the product malfunctioned. When you hire our Minneapolis product injury lawyer at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we will work to collect facts that show the manufacturer or retailer behaved in a negligent manner or that the manufacturer was strictly liable for the performance of the product. Don’t try to take on a large manufacturer and its multiple attorneys yourself. Let our team give you the professional legal representation you need when seeking an injury claim.

Why You Should Choose Tyroler Leonard Injury Law for Your Dangerous Product Claim

Product injury cases can be quite complex. We have to prove that the manufacturer could have taken a different approach to marketing or creating the product, potentially preventing your injuries. We also may have to prove that you were using the product in line with the instructions you received and in a safe manner.

If manufacturers believe that they could be liable for a large settlement amount because of the injuries you suffered while using the product, you can expect them to unleash an army of lawyers to try to convince you to accept a smaller settlement than you actually deserve. Our Minneapolis product injury attorney has extensive experience in product liability cases like this, and this gives us the ability to anticipate the techniques the manufacturer’s attorneys will use, allowing us to have a chance to successfully counteract them.

Why You Should Seek Help from Our Product Injury Lawyers in Minneapolis After a Defective Appliance Accident

Because of the amount of power that many home appliances use for operation and because of their size, any time an appliance malfunctions, it could cause injuries for you and anyone else in the area. Defective home appliances can be especially dangerous, and they can result in some complex personal injury claims. Our Minneapolis product injury attorneys use our experience with many different kinds of appliance accidents to give our injured clients the highest level of representation.

You may think a defective home appliance is one that causes a leak or an explosion. However, there are many other instances involving appliances that could qualify for a defective product injury claim that you may not think about initially.

  • Tip-over appliance: If the design of the appliance makes it top heavy or wobbly, it could tip and injure someone in a crush injury. This type of design flaw is something that designers should prevent from happening.
  • Inadvertent activation: An appliance that someone – including a child or a dog – could turn on by bumping into a knob or button is not safe to use. Manufacturers should not allow this type of design flaw to be part of an appliance.
  • Overheating issues: Designers need to protect wiring in an appliance from parts of the appliance that generate heat. Melted wires could lead to a fire.
  • Defective vehicle: You might not think of a vehicle in the same way as a home appliance, but a defective design in a motor vehicle could lead to an injury accident that may give you the ability to seek an award. If we can show that the design of a hose in the engine was defective and led to your being splashed with a hot liquid, for example, this could lead to an injury claim for your burns. A flawed vehicle may even lead to a single-car accident that was not your fault.

Even if the type of accident you had with your product or home appliance seems like a strange one, reach out to our team of Minneapolis product injury lawyers. We may have some experience with the type of product failure that you experienced and that led to your injuries, or we may know about a design flaw that could lead to your being eligible to win an award.

Our Minneapolis Product Liability Injury Lawyer Can Help You Understand the Legal Aspects of How Your Claim Can Work

The state of Minnesota uses a strict liability law when it comes to product defects. This means we may not have to show that negligence occurred on the part of the manufacturer or retailer to be able to file a successful claim, depending on the circumstances of the case. We may be able to simply show that the product was dangerous to try to win an award for you.

Some of the specific types of product liability claims that are possible in the state of Minnesota include the following.

Design Defect

The design of any product sold to consumers must include safety as a top priority. Unsafe products because of design flaws that lead to injuries typically qualify for a product liability claim.

These products must have a design that allows average people to use the product as intended in a safe manner, or they must have a component built into them designed specifically to prevent injury.

Manufacturing Defect

Manufacturers must have processes in place that catch potential defects in the way the product is being made.

If a portion of the assembly line is not functioning properly, manufacturers must receive an immediate alert, stop production, discard any unsafe products, and fix the assembly line before resuming manufacturing. Failing to do so and allowing defective products to reach retailers could yield a product liability claim.

Insufficient Warning

Any products must contain warning labels or descriptions of warnings in a user manual. Such warning labels must clearly spell out what could happen if the consumer uses the product in an unintended way. If the manufacturer fails to point out these potential hazards, and if a consumer suffers an injury because of the lack of an adequate warning label , a product liability claim is possible.

It’s important to note that not all products need warning labels for all potential consequences. Some products have a natural risk that comes with using them in the appropriate manner that does not legally need a warning label. A knife, for example, is known to be sharp. There’s no need for a warning label regarding a potential cutting of the skin with the knife, because this is a natural risk.

What If the Retailer Who Sold the Product Misrepresented How It Works?

If a salesperson at the store where you purchased the product promised that you could use it in a certain way, and that usage led to your injuries, it is possible that we could hold the retailer liable in your defective product injury claim.

How Much Time Does It Take to Win a Product Injury Claim?

The length of time required to try to win a claim depends on the circumstances in your case. If the manufacturer agrees with our claim, it could settle with in a few months.
