Defective products can cause injury or damage because of the defect in the product, the labeling, or the way the product was used. Inadequately warning consumers can result in liability to the manufacturer. Beyond the manufacturer, others involved in the chain of commerce are often liable for injuries that defective products cause. Each year, more than a million Americans are injured because of defective products.
Defective products can arise from improper design or improper manufacturing techniques. The degree of inherent problems with a product is generally increased if there is a defective design, since all of the products manufactured will have this characteristic.
On the other hand, if there is a problem with the manufacturing process, not all the products may be defective, but liability can result from negligently manufacturing the product. It's recommended to consult with an attorney before talking to a representative of the insurance company.
Three legal theories common to most defective product litigation are as follows:
If you or a family member were injured because of a defective product, you should consult with an attorney who is familiar with defective product cases at the earliest opportunity to protect your right of recovery. These types of defective product cases can also cause the removal of the product from commerce and recalls of the product. Defective product cases require extensive resources and experience.
