Product Liability — Defective Product Lawyers
From children’s toys to prescription drugs, consumers make purchases every day with an almost unconscious trust in the safety of the products they buy. After all, if it were dangerous, then it wouldn’t be on the market, right? Unfortunately, the answer to this question is sometimes “no.” Although the designers, makers, and distributors of a product have a responsibility to protect consumers, they occasionally fail to meet this duty. The result of their failure is the creation, production, and sale of a dangerous or defective item. When an injury occurs to the consumer under reasonable circumstances (if the consumer was injured while using the product in the way it was intended), then the retailer, designer, and manufacturer can all be considered legally liable. At our Law Office, our product liability lawyers are prepared to help such victims recover compensation for their injuries.
Whether we’re talking about snowboards or automobiles, it is the responsibility of the manufacturers to ensure the safety of consumers through adequately testing the design and finished product. They must also provide sufficient quality control measures, directions, and labels to keep defective products off the market and out of the hands of unsuspecting consumers. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous product, please contact the defective product lawyers at our firm. More on this website
Elements of a Product Liability Case
Product liability cases can be extremely complicated because there are often multiple parties potentially involved in bearing responsibility for the defective product. There are four primary elements that can play roles in a product liability case: marketing, testing, manufacturing, and design. When you contact the product liability lawyers at our office, we can begin investigating every detail of your case to determine exactly what went wrong and who is responsible for the defect.
Marketing and Testing
If a product is improperly marketed to the consumer, and injury occurs as a result, those responsible for product marketing can be held accountable. A common example is prescription drug cases in which warning labels are poorly or insufficiently written. Product testing is also a key component of liability cases. The idea behind testing a product before selling it is to protect the consumer. However, sometimes products are allowed to pass inspection without being adequately tested. When consumer protection agencies fail to do their job, our defective product lawyers can hold them accountable.
Manufacturing and Design
The final two elements of product liability cases are manufacturing and design. These tend to be the most important aspects of defective product claims. Sometimes a product with a perfectly good design is not built correctly. A car’s braking system that is well designed but becomes flawed when wires are crossed during the manufacturing process is a good example of this. Likewise, there are products whose flaws exist from their very creation: these flaws are known as design defects. And when they go unnoticed — or worse, are noticed and not corrected — serious problems result for the consumer.

It is a known fact that driving or riding in a car presents a risk to the vehicle’s occupants — car accidents happen every day. However, given the rules and laws of the road, the appropriate safety equipment, and the experience of the driver, the risk of driving can be diminished. When something goes wrong with the vehicle itself, causing or exacerbating harm to the occupants, the defective product lawyers at our office can hold the manufacturers, designers, testers, and retailers of the vehicle accountable.
Defective Air Bags
With all the thousands of parts required to construct a functional automobile, it is not unusual for mistakes to be made in the manufacturing and/or design process. Some of the most common automobile defects include problems with the tires, braking system, and airbags.
Airbags inflate at an average speed of 180 miles per hour. Given the incredible force required to inflate this quickly, injuries from airbags are frequent. Sometimes there are serious defects in the airbag system. Insufficient amounts of heating agents to catalyze the inflation, flaws with the inflator connector, and leaks from the inflation module are all examples of product defects that have caused serious injury to passengers and drivers.
