Product Liability Lawyer
Americans use a myriad of products everyday. We believe and expect those products to be safe. In fact, the law requires the products to be safe for their intended use. There are laws that govern the materials that may be used, laws that govern the environment where the products are made and laws that set forth safety standards that manufacturers must meet in the manufacturing of their products. These responsibilities apply to everyone within the chain of distribution including the retailer, wholesaler, distributor as well as the original manufacturer. Unfortunately, not all companies follow the law. Cutting costs by using substandard materials, untrained labor, or by failing to properly design and test the product can lead to cheaper products and bigger profits for the company. It can also lead to devastating injuries to unwary and unfortunate consumers who unwittingly assumed the product to be safe.
Injuries occur everyday because of defective products. Lawn mowers, tree stands, power tools, electrical equipment, toys and household products are but a few of the examples of products that can harm their users when improperly designed or manufactured.
The law provides for 3 types of defects in a products liability case:
1) manufacturing defects which occur during the actual manufacture and assembly of a product at the factory; 2) design defects which occur at the inception of the design idea and which make a product have inherent problems regardless of appropriate manufacturing; and finally 3) warning defects which occur when the instructions and warnings are inadequate to instruct or warn the user of potential dangers or risks.
