Cases Involving Defective ProductsWritten by Nashville
Each year, millions of people are being harmed by defective products. A defective product is a product that causes injury or harm to a person. A product may be considered to be defective for many different reasons such as design defect, failure to warn, failure to guard, unfit for intended use, defect in construction, or a defect in materials. With this, defective product claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty of fitness depending on jurisdiction within which claim is based.
No matter how big or small, you must file your defective products claim and see what your legal rights are. Basically, liability and damages are two important elements in every defective products law case. A liability involves demonstrating that person being charged did bear responsibility for injury. The damages, however, refer to extent or amount of injury or loss that was suffered on account of defendant's actions or negligence.
Know what, defective product cases require extensive resources and experience. Expert witnesses can cost tens of thousands of dollars just for an initial evaluation. Not every lawyer has resources or connections to utilize top experts. In addition, product liability cases require originality, creativeness, fortitude and resources to cover high expenses involved. Representing injured parties is often expensive for attorneys because they put up large sums of money on these complex cases in order to hire experts, take depositions, gather evidence, and oppose lawyers of large companies and insurance firms.
All About Child Molestation Written by BLUR LOTERIÑA
Often we misuse words ‘pedophile’ and ‘child molester’. We tend to use ‘pedophile’ to all offenders who sexually abuse children. But these two words are different in meaning.
A pedophile refers to a man or woman who has recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, urges, or behaviors involving pubescent or prepubescent children. The offense must occur over a period of at least six months for a person to be called a pedophile.
Pedophile is one case of a paraphilia, a psychosexual disorder. Paraphilia is not a type of child sexual abuse crime. This disorder causes a person to fantasize children sexually. But fantasizing, although alarming, is not illegal. If person act out his fantasies or engage in actual sex with children, he will now be charged of crime, thus, making him a child molester. In other words, a pedophile is not necessarily a criminal. When he sexually abuses or exploits children, he now becomes a child molester.
There are two types of child molesters, situational child molesters and preferential child molesters. The first one does not have a true preference for children. They molest a child for different reasons, which sometimes has nothing to do with sexual desires. It is more of a criminal activity and sometimes victim just happens to be a child. So, child molestation does not really require a paraphilia disorder.
