Why You Need an Attorney

Under Connecticut law, there are several elements that you have to prove in order to recover compensation for your injuries caused by a defective product. Just because a product injured a person does not mean it was defective as delineated by law.

In Connecticut, the theory of comparative responsibility is applied to product liability claims. Even if you have some degree of responsibility in causing the accident or injury, you can still bring a product liability claim, but your compensation for your injuries will be reduced in proportion to the degree it is considered you were at fault.

An experienced Connecticut product liability attorney that is familiar with the nuances of this area of the law can help you pursue a successful outcome with your claim. The attorneys at Moore Kuehn can help you recover compensation for medical bills, loss of income, diminished earning capacity, disability, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Common Types of Defective Products

There are three types of defects:

Design defects: An inherent defect in the design of the product.

Manufacturing defects: A product fails due to an error in the manufacturing process.

Marketing defects: Failing to warn users of potentially dangerous applications or parts of the product or failing to inform the consumer of the proper and safe usage of the product.

Some commonly defective products include:

  • Automobiles: Such as brakes, seatbelts, steering wheels, tires, and airbags that fail, causing serious injuries and fatalities.
  • Contaminated food: Unsanitary food production facilities and spoiled ingredients resulting in food poisoning and even death.
  • Medical devices: Faulty knee, hip or other joint implants, malfunctioning surgical tools that cause the patient injury, paralysis or death.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs: Incorrectly prepared or labeled medication, improper or lack of testing, failure to warn of drug side effects, inappropriate prescribing by medical professional resulting in deteriorating health, injury or death of a patient.
  • Household appliances: Toasters, space heaters, and other devices that cause fires, burns, electrocution, and other serious injuries.
  • Industrial equipment: Poorly designed or manufactured equipment, tools, and machinery that fails, leading to injuries to a user or others.
