Defective products are goods that are commercially produced and distributed that are unfit for its intended use; dangerous or harmful for normal use; does not carry adequate instructions for its use; or is inherently dangerous due to defective design, assembly, or manufacture.
There are many ways you can be injured by defective products; parts can break off and becoming choking hazards; automobile defects can cause accidents like SUV rollers, sudden acceleration, or tire blow outs. And, even products we trust to keep our children safe, like booster seats, car seats, strollers and cribs, can be defective causing serious injuries or the tragic death of a child.
When smoke detectors are defective or malfunction, or not properly installed, people can be severely burned, suffer brain damage from smoke inhalation, or die.
Product manufacturers and distributors have experienced attorneys who will attempt to disprove the facts of your case or twist them to try and prove you were at fault - not the product.
Experienced Defective Product Attorneys
Product liability lawsuits must have some legal basis for the claims made. We represent victims who have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to a faulty or defective product.
The most common product liability lawsuits involve one or more of the following legal theories:
Design Defects: The product is not safe for its normally intended use, and in some cases, for its normal foreseeable use. This second condition is important because some products are safe by themselves or only when used in certain situations, but combined or used with another product or situation could become dangerous.
Manufacturing Defects: The product was not manufactured properly, parts were defective, or unsafe in some way.
Marketing Defects: Products must have sufficient warning labels and instructions for proper use.
