Examples of Product Defect Injury Claims

Product injury claims arise when a consumer suffers harm from using a product.

Common examples of defective products include:

  • Tainted food products that lead to poising or illness
  • Faulty automotive parts that lead to serious accidents
  • Defective toys that create choking hazards for children
  • Electronic devices that overheat, causing burns or fires
  • Defective medical devices that pose significant health risks
  • Harmful chemicals in poorly labeled household cleaners cause burns or respiratory problems

Our Defective Product Services

Our team takes a comprehensive approach to product defect cases. Initially, provide a consultation to understand the specifics of your case. During this stage, our team thoroughly evaluates your case, determining its strength and avenues for legal action. Following evaluation, we proceed with negotiations, where we confront the manufacturer or seller, and we attempt to settle the case out of court. Negotiation can, unfortunately, fail, leading to the next step, court representation. Our skilled attorneys advocate on your behalf in and out of the courtroom, working hard to get you the result you deserve.

While pursuing your product defect personal injury claim, we gather evidence, document injuries, and build a case to prove liability. Our team deftly navigates these steps, working to build a strong case for you.

Types of Product Defect Claims

Defective Design

Sometimes, a product has inherent flaws all the way back to the blueprint stage. All the products are made correctly, but there is something in their design that can cause injury. They can cause injuries even when used as intended.

For example, a children's toy might have sharp edges, leading to cuts. Similarly, a car model may have a propensity to flip over during sharp turns. These issues compromise safety and function, and all products in the line are unsafe.

Manufacturing Defect

These issues occur during the product's assembly or production. Something goes wrong, departing from the original design, creating a safety concern.

For instance, a bicycle missing crucial bolts can cause accidents. Similarly, a kettle with improper wiring might overheat and pose burn risks. These defects result from errors in the manufacturing process, endangering consumers.

Mislabeled Products

Products lacking instructions or warnings about potential hazards put users at risk. In a mislabeled product claim, the manufacturer is aware of the danger their product poses, and they simply do not inform their customers.

Furthermore, the hazard must not be something you would reasonably expect. For example, you know that a lighter produces fire, and you must handle it carefully. However, you would not expect the base to overheat and burn your hand while holding the lighter.

What to Do If You Are Harmed by a Defective Product

If you suffer an injury from a defective product, take these steps immediately.

  1. Ensure your safety. Move away from potential hazards, and, if possible, keep the danger from spreading.
  2. Seek medical attention. Even if injuries seem minor, a healthcare professional can provide a thorough examination, and they may find injuries that have not yet produced symptoms.
  3. Keep all medical records and receipts related to your treatment. These documents are crucial for your case.
  4. Document everything about the incident. Take photos of your injuries and the defective product. Note the product's name, model, and where and when you bought it. Record your account of the injury while the details are fresh in your mind
  5. Contact our team. We are here to stand up for your rights and hold irresponsible manufacturers accountable for their actions.
