When a manufacturer creates a product, they are liable for any damage that their product causes. Legally, this is referred to as product liability. Consumers who experience injuries and other complications from medication, vehicles, and other products have the right to file a product liability lawsuit to recover compensation for the damages they incurred. Unfortunately, sometimes these products even cause death.

In the past couple of years, product liability lawsuits have been on the rise in the United States. If a product has caused you harm that wasn’t disclosed on the packaging or didn’t warn you about beforehand, then you could have a claim against the manufacturer. A product liability lawyer from Thomas Law Offices in Louisville can support you through the legal process.
