Identifying a Defective or Malfunctioning Product

By and large, we expect that the products we purchase with our hard-earned money will work as advertised. When things go wrong, and serious injuries result, most people place the blame on themselves first and assume they have used the product incorrectly. However, user error doesn’t always explain product-related injuries. Over the years, there have been countless instances where manufacturers, designers, marketers, and other representatives of a company rushed to release a product without performing adequate safety checks, or without informing the public about known risks.

When this happens, it is considered negligence. Corporations have a responsibility to protect consumers, and failing to perform their duty of care can make them responsible for any injuries you or your loved one have suffered.

Our team can fight for maximum recovery for your injuries, and we can cover cases involving defective products like:

  • Dangerous cosmetic implants
  • Defective tires
  • Faulty seat belts or car safety devices
  • Contaminated food products
  • Recalled and defective motor vehicles
  • Toxic children’s toys
  • Defective medical devices
  • Toxins in cosmetics
  • Defective appliances

Types of Product Liability Claims

For a successful product liability claim, you need to demonstrate that the parties involved were responsible for protecting your health and safety in one or more areas of the product creation and selling process. You must also demonstrate that they failed to do this.

There are three major types of defective product claims you can bring against a company, group, or individual person:

  1. Manufacturing and factory defects; or negligence committed by the creators of the product.
  2. Design and engineering defects; or negligence committed during the planning and ideation phase of the product development process.
  3. Failure to adequately warn or inform consumers about proper use; or negligence committed by marketers, sales personnel, and manufacturers in preparing the product for mass consumption.

Depending on which category your defective product claim falls into, you may be bringing your product liability case against a variety of defendants, or multiple people at once. From the marketers who package and promote the product, to the engineers who first came up with the idea and planned its execution, you can often hold many parties accountable when using a product results in serious injury.
