Were You Injured by a Dangerous Product? We Can Help

When you buy something, whether it is food, a vehicle, a child’s toy, or even medication, you trust that it will be safe for its intended use. However, if an item is defective or unreasonably dangerous, then consumers may be at risk for serious injuries, illness, or death. For example, contaminated food can cause severe infections, including E. coli and hepatitis A. Alternatively, a defective auto part may fail at high speeds, causing a catastrophic car crash. Even a small flaw in the manufacture, design, or labeling of a product can cause irreversible injury.

What Are the Common Types of Product Defects?

Essentially any type of product may be defective and dangerous in almost any imaginable way. However, premises liability law generally groups defects by the source of the flaw. According to this system, the three general types of product defects are:

  • Design defect. In some cases, the basic design of a product may present unreasonable hazards to users. For example, a design defect in some vehicles makes them prone to rollover accidents, which may cause serious and preventable injuries in the event of a car crash.
  • Manufacturing defect. Even if the design of an item is sound, negligence or errors during the manufacturing process may result in defects. For instance, poor health standards at a food packaging plant may result in contamination, causing potentially fatal food poisoning.
  • Labeling defect. Sometimes, a product may be safe only for certain uses and may pose a significant danger in other circumstances. Therefore, most consumer products must contain clear instructions and warning labels concerning the item’s correct use. If a company fails to include these labels, then users may cause inadvertent injury. For example, if a drug interacts negatively with another medication, then the pharmaceutical company must include warnings to that effect.

When Can I File a Product Liability Claim?

Product liability law allows you to seek compensation for your injuries and damages from the parties responsible for a defective product. However, these laws are complex and vary from state to state. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to file a product liability claim for:

Our defective product attorneys can explain the complexities of these laws to you and help determine whether you have a claim.

Discuss Your Options with Our Product Liability Attorneys

Generally, injury victims do not know whether a labeling, design, or manufacturing defect caused their accident. However, a product liability lawyer can investigate similar incidents involving the same product. An attorney can also find the manufacturer and determine if all proper safety procedures and tests were performed.

Additionally, it is difficult to take on the big companies and multinational corporations that produce many consumer products alone. Therefore, if you or a loved one sustained injuries from a defective product, then you should consult a product liability attorney about your options.
