Defective Design and More

While many products liability cases are caused by the faulty design of a product which makes the product dangerous, there are other issues as well. Manufacturing defects can occur during the manufacturing process and make the product dangerous. For example, a defective weld which weakens the structural integrity of a product is a manufacturing defect.

Sometimes, the issue isn’t the product itself, but the way that the product is presented to consumers. Claims can be based on the failure to properly warn consumers of dangers associated with the use or misuse of the product. Warning labels should be placed on the packaging informing users of the product of safety hazards that may result in physical injuries when using the product in question. No matter what the cause of an accident, we can help.

Defective Products in the Workplace

When a piece of equipment causes an injury in the workplace, workers’ compensation is often the first option the victim considers. However, it may not be the only option. When defective factory equipment or work equipment causes harm, we may be able to file a personal injury claim to get compensation far above and beyond that which would be provided by workers’ comp.
