When a purchased product doesn’t meet your expectations, you’re certainly disappointed, but when that product is defective to the point of causing injury or death, it’s another story—perhaps with a tragic ending. Our experience with product liability cases includes the following:
- Household products and appliances
- Building materials
- Motor vehicles
- Clothing and apparel
- Recreational and athletic equipment
- Infant safety products
- Car accessories—tires, seat belts, airbags, car seats
Even when properly labeled with warnings, defective products are still a liability of the manufacturer. There are three types of defects involving commercial, consumer or medical products:
- Design: the product was inherently unsafe but manufactured anyway.
- Manufacturing: despite an adequate design, the product was made incorrectly or with faulty materials.
- Failure to warn or instruct: Inadequate or missing instructions for and warnings about use of the product.
