Louisville, KY Product Liability Lawyer

NEWS:  Attorney Tad Thomas was recently voted by his peers as on of the best product liability attorneys in Louisville, Kentucky.

We live in an age when consumer products are becoming more globalized than ever before. That means that despite the best efforts of American manufacturers, outsourced parts and processes are increasingly making everyday items potentially hazardous to your health. One only needs to look back a few years to remember the many shocking cases of Chinese paints and products that contained dangerous levels of lead – in some cases, over a hundred times the maximum allowed. More recent recalls in the food industry and auto industry highlight just how difficult it can be to account for every possible line of production. The upshot: it pays to exercise caution in your choice of products.

Dangerous Products

For all the products that make warning lists and parenting blogs, however, there are bound to be others that simply fall through the cracks. Each year, over 10,000 injuries result nationwide as a consequence of poor design and manufacture, and here in Kentucky, the trend line matches the national average. You simply cannot hear about every defective product in the marketplace today, no matter how much vigilance you display. And not every case of product liability is known to manufacturers – someone must get injured first, and that means they can seek compensation when something goes wrong.

What Kinds of Injuries Can Result From Product Liability Cases?

The list runs the gamut of medical emergencies, including poisoning, allergic reactions, internal injuries, slips, falls, broken bones, damaged vision or catastrophic head injuries. Suffice it to say, it is essential to stay abreast of the latest developments in consumer safety, especially if you have small children or babies in the house. Some damaged products, including the toys associated with the lead recall, may even take months or years to manifest adverse effects, so do not hesitate to investigate the sources of future symptoms as well.

A Louisville, KY product liability lawyer is adept at untangling the web of responsibilities associated with cases such as these and taking every step to build an airtight case. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may even be able to help enact changes that will affect thousands or millions of consumers down the line – a source of great satisfaction to complement the settlement you have earned.
