AWARD WINNING PERSONAL INJURY & MEDICAL MALPRACTICE TRIAL LAWYERS
Your Experienced Product Defects Attorney
Consumers have the right to expect a sensible level of safety and performance when utilizing a product. If personal property damage or an injury results from the proper use of the product, the manufacturer, distributor or even retailer who supplied the product can be responsible. Most product defect cases fall under manufacturing defects, design defects or lack of warnings and instructions. Our team of attorneys can help you determine whether a claim can be established, depending on multiple factors.
A manufacturing defect is when one or a few items were negatively impacted during production. This kind of defect happens when a product departs from its intended design. For example, a medical device company may unintentionally produce a bad batch of pills that were distributed in stores or a moped manufacturer may sell a moped that is missing break pads. Design defects are less common, but can still happen. With design defects, many different parties can be held accountable for any damage caused. These design defect cases are usually brought against defendants by multiple affected individuals, often resulting in a wide recall and financial restitution. For example if a car was designed top-heavy, then it would be prone to flipping over, therefore all cars in this model would be affected by the design defect. Numerous products can be potentially dangerous if not used correctly. Manufacturers must supply buyers with the information they need to protect themselves from injury by using the item incorrectly. For a lack of adequate instruction or warning claim, the injuries or damage must directly come from the preventable misuse of the product due to insufficient information. For example, a product could have been missing instructions or warning labels, causing the consumer to use the product incorrectly.
An experienced attorney can investigate your incident to establish what third parties are responsible. To establish a claim, you must show that you have suffered an injury or loss. You must also show that the defect or failure to provide correct instruction must have been the cause for injury. Third, we must show that you were using the product correctly and exactly as instructed because a claim is not valid if due to user error.
