All states allow some form of recovery to persons injured by "defective products." Manufacturers are responsible for damages caused by the defective product. Those who are considered to be in the "chain of commerce" may be liable, even if they didn't know of or cause the defect. Tracking down all of the parties who may be responsible is tricky, so a good attorney will be vital in locating all of the parties that should be sued. You may have a class action suit if there are a lot of people that have been injured by the product. If circumstances are similar to others who have been injured, you could hire an attorney to represent all of your claims.
