Have you been hurt by a defective product? If so, it’s likely that you can seek compensation for your injuries. Consider this: When you purchase a tool, product or have a medical device implanted inside you, you expect that it’s in working order and won’t cause you harm. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case, and that can mean a trip to the hospital.
In Montana, a large number of products used on a day-to-day basis are farm-based thanks to the agricultural jobs in the state. Large augers, tractors and balers all have the potential to cause life-threatening injuries if they aren’t working properly or suddenly jump, backfire or have other problems. Sadly, there could be defects that aren’t known about until it’s too late to prevent your injuries, leaving you with scarring, permanent injuries or causing death.
Beyond farming, there are several kinds of items that could be defective; in fact, almost everything you come into contact with on a daily basis could be damaged or defective in some way. Most commonly, recalls refer to industrial machinery, automobiles or their parts, tires, guns and other products.
No matter what you were using when you were hurt, if a defect was the cause, you deserve to have your case looked over. You may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered, especially if you’re left with a disability or serious injury that impacts your daily life.
