Individuals are injured on a regular basis by defective products. What is important to know is that manufacturers and the companies involved in the sale of manufactured products to the general public have a legal duty to the public to ensure that they do not cause injuries or death due to a defect in the design, manufacture, or marketing of these products.
In the event of injury, though, due to defective products, Jackson Law International is prepared to assist you in pursuing a claim – whether in the United or through its attorneys in Germany – to seek recovery for your injuries.
Optimally, manufacturers recognize the defect on their own, and the product is recalled prior to the occurrence of any injury. In the United States, one means of keeping up with product recalls throughout the United States is through the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. In Germany, the policing of product safety is handled by each of Germany’s individual states. The Bundesamt für Verbraucherschutz und Lebensmittelsicherheit (BVL) (Agency for Consumer Production and Food Safety oversees the market place in Germany.
Where an injury has occurred, however, Jackson Law International will carefully examine the nature of your injuries in relation to these questions about the product at issue. We look forward to receiving the necessary information to assist you in this regard.
Why is it important to have an experienced attorney at your side?
Keep in mind that being represented by an experienced attorney can cause you to avoid mistakes that might affect the value of your legal claim or which might cause it to be barred entirely. Rest assured that the manufacturers and large corporations responsible for the injuries will most certainly have experienced legal counsel to defend them, and it will not be their goal to look out for your best interests. Instead, their goal will be to minimize your recovery.
Thus, it is important, if you believe you may have a claim, for you to seek legal advice as quickly as possible after your injuries occurred in order to preserve evidence and to allow your attorney to be able to pursue all applicable remedies.
Jackson Law International’s attorneys welcome the opportunity to discuss your claim with you in confidence, so that you can determine your rights.
