Were You Injured by a Harmful or Defective Product? Call Van Law Firm Right Away
We may have differing tastes and preferences, but all of us buy and use a multitude of different products on a daily basis. As such, Summerlin shoppers have the expectation that all consumer products have been sufficiently vetted and tested before they reach retail shelves. Unfortunately, however, that is not always the case, as harmful and defective products injure more people every day.
When we are injured as a result of these dangerous products, it may feel like there is nothing we can do to protect our rights. The truth, however, is that injured consumers can file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer or retailer responsible for creating or selling the harmful product in question. In order to do so, all you need to do is contact the experienced Summerlin product liability attorneys from Van Law Firm–over the years, we’ve helped innumerable injured Nevadans get their rightful compensation, and we’re committed to holding negligent businesses and manufacturers accountable for the damages their products have caused. Call (725) 900-9000 if you’ve experienced complications due to unsafe or defective goods
The Basics of Product Liability in Nevada
There are four basic product liability concepts that apply to cases in Nevada. Keep in mind that claimants may be able to draw on more than one of the following:
Negligence is a general concept for all personal injury claims, but it is applied in cases of product liability as well. Broadly speaking, in order to prove general negligence, claimants must be able to show that: 1) the defendant owed them a duty of care, 2) they breached this duty, 3) this breach led directly to the plaintiff’s injuries, and 4) the plaintiff suffered damages as a result.
Under Nevada law, manufacturers can be held liable for injuries caused by their products using a “formula” known as strict liability. Essentially, claimants may have a successful claim if they can show that: 1) something about the product was defective, 2) that defect arose before the product left the manufacturer’s supervision, 3) the consumer then used the product for its intended purpose, and 4) the defect subsequently caused you harm or injury.
Breach of Warranty
Broadly speaking, products can either have express or implicit warranties. Express warranties are explicit and specific, whereas implicit warranties are considered general knowledge. If a product caused you harm, you may have a successful claim if a warranty was involved.
Intentional Misrepresentation or Fraud
If a manufacturer is discovered to have ignored hazards, concealed information or findings, or used misleading or false advertising, they may be liable for consumers’ injuries under a intentional misrepresentation claim.

Recovering Compensation for Injuries Sustained From Harmful Products
When it comes to product liability claims, manufacturers and retailers love to deny fault and downplay claimants’ injuries. After all, they can always fall back on the standard arguments, which usually involve claims that the product was misused, somehow tampered with, or simply not defective at all. This is the last thing that claimants want to hear, and they are often intimidated when confronted by large manufacturers. Luckily, that’s where we come in to help.
