Our law firm handles product liability claims where personal injury or death results from a defective product. A product may be defective by design, manufacturing, or for failing to warn of certain dangers. Manufacturers of dangerous products may be liable for injuries and if their conduct in producing the dangerous product was reckless, it may also be liable for punitive damages. We handle cases against automobile manufacturers and product makers of all types of dangerous and defective goods.
Are Product Manufacturers Responsible for Defective Merchandise?
Companies that manufacture products and the designers who create them are held responsible for unsafe merchandise that they produce. There is a duty of care that must be upheld and enforced by the legal system, if there is to be a level of standards used in the goods we buy and use daily. Because life altering injuries do occur due to defective products, the law has made it so that manufacturers can be sued for pain and suffering, medical bill reimbursement, and loss of work income.
Examples of common products that are recalled due to a faulty design, include the following:
- Automobile parts, including tires, brakes, accelerators, and other safety aspects.
- Airplane crashes due to faulty materials or parts.
- Side effects from prescribed medications.
- Toys made with small choke hazards or toxic chemicals.
- Poorly tested cribs, strollers, and car seats.
- Construction equipment, notably power tools with defects.
