Filing a Defective Product Claim:

Individuals who have sustained serious injuries due to a defective power tool are entitled to monetary compensation from all at fault parties including manufacturers of the product. Filing a defective product claim can be a challenging process. Generally there are three interrelated causes of action available in a product liability case.
  • Labeling Defect: A product can be defective if its manufacturers fail to properly warn consumers of the dangers associated with its use.
  • Design Defect: A product can be defectively designed if its manufacturers had pre-warned knowledge of the existence of an alternative and less dangerous design but failed to implement it into the production phase.
  • Manufacturing Defect:  A product can be defective when the final produced and distributed item is markedly different and as a result more dangerous than its intended design.
There are numerous types of winches which can be deemed defective including, electrical, mechanical capstan, hydraulic drum winch, mechanical hand operated winch, vehicle mounted power winches, and winches used onboard fishing vessels and other boats. For More information in Product Liability Claims visit this page. Compensation for Your Injuries: Victims of defective products are entitled to compensation for the damages they have sustained. A calculation of the value of a winch accident lawsuit will depend on several factors including
  • The extent of injuries suffered
