When a Consumer Product Becomes a Liability

When a Consumer Product Becomes a Liability

When a Consumer Product Becomes a Liability

Every year, thousands of consumers sustain serious injuries from defective products. Our defective product lawyers have represented hundreds of plaintiffs in lawsuits against manufacturers and distributors of defective or unsafe consumer products, including automobile recalls, as well as tires, electronics, appliances and various household goods.

If a product you are using somehow injures you or causes you some other kind of harm, such as to your personal property, you may have a product liability claim. The range of defective product cases is broad, but claims typically fall into three categories:

  • defective manufacture;
  • faulty design;
  • failure to provide enough instruction on proper use of the product.

Products that are Defectively Manufactured

A defectively manufactured product is flawed due to an error that occurred during the actual manufacturing process at the factory. The injury or property damage this product causes is the result of a manufacturing defect.

Defective Designs are Sometimes to Blame

Defective design claims are the focus when a product is inherently dangerous, even if it has been manufactured precisely according to its specifications. A simple example would be an electric blanket that burns you if you turn it to the “high” setting.

The Lack of Precise Instructions Regarding a Product’s Use

The third type of product liability claim involves a failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions about the product's proper use. Claims of this sort typically involve a product that is dangerous in some way that's not obvious to the user or that requires the user to follow certain precautions or to apply unusual care while using it. An example of this would be cold medicine that doesn’t mention on its label that it may cause drowsiness or could have fatal consequences if mixed with something else, such as alcohol.

If you or a loved one have been adversely affected as a result of a defective or recalled product, you may have valuable legal rights. Parker Waichman LLP urges you to contact us by completing the form at right or calling us at 1-800-YOURLAWYER (1-800-968-7529).
