Thousands of new products are made every year. Unfortunately, many of those products cause injury or wrongful death to people like you every year. Sometimes, these products aren’t safe to use. They may have design flaws or manufacturing defects that can cause personal injury or wrongful death. If you or someone you know has been injured from a product that went wrong during its use, you should file a products liability claim (similar to a personal injury claim). Hiring an experienced products liability lawyer can help you hold those accountable for the defective product that caused for your injuries.
What Are Defective Products?Defective products cause personal injury because of a manufacturing defect, malfunction, poor labeling or the way it was used. Defective products and product liability claims cover a wide variety of issues, but some of the most common are: Design defects -- These defective products happen because of an aspect in the design that makes the product unsafe for the consumer. Manufacturing defects -- Millions of products come off the assembly line every day. Quality Control might catch defects or flaws, but substandard products can still reach the market, putting you at risk for injury or wrongful death. For example, manufacturing defects can cause car accidents. Failure to warn -- Did you know if a manufacturer fails to place a warning on a product of possible dangers or side effects, the company can be held responsible in product liability lawsuits and claims?
