Defective Products And Product Liability
Every day all of us come into contact with hundreds, possibly thousands of manufactured goods. From our cars and trucks to coffeemakers and elevators, we rarely question whether or not any of these devices pose a risk to our safety. But, they can, especially when they are defective.
Defective goods fall into several categories:
- Design defects — If a good is designed in such a way that it will fail if used for the intended purpose, it has a design defect. Design defects affect every individual good of a particular type manufactured.
- Manufacturing defects — When a single item or a single manufacturing run of an item varies from the intended design in a way that will cause a failure if used for the intended purpose, that is a manufacturing defect.
- Failure to warn — Manufacturers have a duty to warn users of their products if certain foreseeable uses may cause risk.
Our firm helps those who have been injured by a wide range of defective products, including:
- Defective car parts
- Safety equipment for your leisure activities (e.g., motorcycle helmets, etc.)
- Household equipment
- Tools and equipment
- Recreational vehicles
