Unfortunately, defective products have been on the rise in the last several years, causing serious injuries for consumers. The top five defective product verdicts rose more than 50% in 2009 to $620 million. Rising unemployment and juror attitudes about companies in the midst of the recession helped to contribute to these higher numbers. Although you might think there’s no way to send a message to these firms that design and produce dangerous products, you may have legal recourse if you or a family member were seriously injured as a result of a product like this.
Right now, there is a lot of public sympathy for the average person who has been injured by a big company. Five of the biggest 50 verdicts in 2009 involved defective products claims. Federal regulatory efforts have struggled to provide the proper level of safety and protection for consumers today. This means that even as an individual, you have the potential to hold these major companies accountable for their actions.
Defective product injury suits and class action lawsuits give a powerful voice to the common man. With the help of a defective products attorney, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and send a clear message to these big companies that they should focus more on consumer safety than profits.
The U.S. district court, for example, is preparing more than 100 lawsuits filed against Toyota alone. New federal legislation is also being considered that would hold foreign manufacturers accountable for selling dangerous and defective products such as Chinese dry wall. You may be curious about who is looking out for the average person in light of these legal problems. Seeger Weiss law firm is. Our law firm is committed to representing individuals and families who pay the price when a company chooses to focus on profits instead of consumer safety.
