Common Types of Defective Products

Product manufacturers are required to ensure that the items they manufacture, sell, or supply to consumers are safe to use. However, products may be defective or dangerous for a variety of reasons. Design defects may occur when designers or manufacturers fail to account for issues that could cause a product to break down or become dangerous. Manufacturing defects may occur while a product is being made, leading it to break down or become dangerous even if it was designed correctly. Manufacturers or other parties may also be responsible for a failure to warn consumers about the potential risks of using a product or the failure to provide instructions on the safe uses of items.

Consumers may be injured by a variety of different defective products, including:

  • Auto parts - Brakes, airbags, seat belts, engine components, steering systems, or other parts of a vehicle may break down, leading to car accidents or other dangerous situations.
  • Drugs and medical equipment - Pharmaceutical companies may be liable for failing to properly test drugs and ensure that they are safe to use or failing to inform people about potential side effects. Manufacturers of medical devices and equipment may be responsible for defects in items such as artificial joints, pacemakers, defibrillators, insulin pumps, or surgical tools.
  • Toys or children's products - Items meant to be used by children may contain small parts that create choking hazards or toxic substances such as lead paint. Other products, such as cribs, high chairs, rockers, swings, changing tables, or car seats, may harm children if they do not provide the proper protection against falls or other injuries.
  • Home appliances - Devices such as refrigerators, dishwashers, washers, dryers, or furnaces may have faulty wiring or other defects that could lead to fires, electrocutions, or other harmful situations.
  • Tools and equipment - Power tools used at home, tools and equipment used on construction sites, or other types of equipment used in homes and workplaces may break down and injure their users.

Protect Yourself With Evidence

If you suffer from any type of personal injury as a result of a defective product, the first step in protecting yourself is to seek proper medical attention and follow the advice of your doctor. There should be no reason for the defense to argue that you were responsible for a portion of your injuries by failing to obey the doctor's orders. It is also important to keep the defective product in its original state without any alterations. This could serve as evidence when proving a company's negligence.

At our law firm, we pride ourselves on being selective with our clients so that we can offer them the maximum representation they deserve. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not receive any legal fees until you obtain the compensation you deserve.
