From power tools to forklifts, tainted food to kitchen appliances, faulty products encompass a wide variety of manufactured goods. As attorneys handling faulty product cases, we must prove that the company that made the product either designed it poorly or put it together defectively. And we must prove that the use of the product was dangerous to the person who used it and caused injury.
Many persons who are injured by a product believe it to be their own fault. Often times, that is not the case, and it is worth a call to our office for a free consultation.
Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their products, when used in the intended manner, do not harm consumers. This responsibility extends to designers, wholesalers, retailers and anyone else involved with making, distributing or selling consumer products.
Every product you purchase and use should be safe
The manufacturer, seller or distributor of a product can be held responsible for the harm caused by product defects:
- Design defects—these occur before the product is created, in the initial planning phase.
- Manufacturing errors—these are the result of mistakes or problems that occur during the production phase. They may only affect a few items out of many safe products.
- Marketing misrepresentation—this occurs when sellers do not provide adequate warnings or instructions regarding potential risks for specific products.
