What Makes a Product Defective?
A product can be considered defective when:
There is a defect in the manufacturing process. A product can be defective due to a factory error or poor workmanship, which poses a safety hazard to the user.
The product is not properly designed. Design defects exist even if a product is properly manufactured—missing safety features, defective materials, and inadequate product testing can lead to injury.
There is a failure to provide proper warnings or instructions. Products must feature warning labels that alert users to any potential safety hazards, and instructions that explain how to safely operate products.
Product liability claims can arise from a variety of products—defects can occur in medical devices or even items purchased off of local store shelves. If you aren‘t sure if you have a defective product case, our legal staff can help answer your questions and protect your legal rights.
