Each year in the United States, thousands of people are seriously hurt or killed as a result of defective products that should not have been on store shelves. Product manufacturing companies have a responsibility to consumers to make items that are safe and that function as designed.

Even the simplest defective product can have devastating results. Under the legal concept of product liability, the injured person or family of the deceased can collect damages for a defective product.

Safety Guidelines

Manufacturers must follow proper safety guidelines and perform adequate safety testing before sending the product to retailers. Manufacturers should take the necessary steps to ensure that we, as consumers, receive the highest quality, most dependable products they make. However, sadly, this does not always happen, and dangerous products become mass-produced, making their way to store shelves across our country. Products can be dangerous due to:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects
  • Inadequate warnings and instructions on how to use the products

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, you may have a valid product liability case against any parties involved in the manufacture and sale of the product, including:

  • Product manufacturer
  • Assembly manufacturer
  • Wholesaler
  • Retail store where the product was sold
  • Person who sold you the product

Some of the most common defective product cases we have seen are:

  • Defective automobiles
  • Defective automobile parts
  • Defective tools
  • Defective toys
  • Defective household appliances
  • Defective drugs
