Product Liability Lawyer in Twin Falls & Boise Serving Throughout Idaho
When you purchase a product manufactured by a major corporation, you have a right to assume that the product will not injure you or your family members when used properly. Sadly, this is not always the case. Sometimes, manufacturers take shortcuts on testing products before releasing them for sale to the public. Worse still, some companies will lie about the results of testing in order to rush a product to market. Others will ignore reports of injuries caused by one of their products until they are forced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to issue a recall and pull the item from shelves. These deceptive practices are all targeted at increasing profits, at the cost of jeopardizing the safety of consumers.

The law imposes strict liability when products are dangerous
If a product is dangerous and causes injuries to consumers who are using the product as directed, designers, manufacturers and retailers will be found strictly liable for any injuries caused. In other words, it doesn’t matter whether the designers or manufacturers knew that the product was dangerous when they made it available for sale; it only matters that the product is able to injure those who use it normally or according to the manufacturer’s directions. Not only will the designer and manufacturer be held responsible for the dangerous product, but those who made a profit from selling the product in their store may also owe you compensation if the product hurts you.
