Accidents happen, but when those accidents are the result of a defective product, the consequences can be unexpected. In these situations, you need experienced legal representation to ensure your rights are protected.
Defective products encompass a wide range of items, from automobiles and household appliances to pharmaceuticals and medical devices. They can cause serious injuries, ranging from burns, cuts, and broken bones to life-altering conditions and, tragically, even death.
Understanding Defective Products:
There are three main types of defects that may lead to product liability claims:
- Design Defects: These occur when a product’s initial design is inherently unsafe, even if it is manufactured correctly.
- Manufacturing Defects: These defects occur during the production or assembly process, making some products dangerous even though they were designed safely.
- Marketing Defects (Failure to Warn): This involves a failure to provide adequate warnings about potential risks associated with the product’s use.
