Defective Product Information
Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe for consumers. Flaws in the design or manufacturing of a product can have tragic consequences. Most manufacturers have responsible, effective quality control measures in place to ensure the safety of their products. Unfortunately, some product manufacturers have so little regard for consumer safety that their quality control methods are negligently lax or non-existent.
Defective product victims may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries, including:
- Recovery of lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
Defective Design & Manufacturing
A defective product design can result in a flaw being repeated throughout production. A toy may be manufactured with small pieces that present a choking hazard if swallowed by children, or a vehicle's tires may include a design fault that causes them to fail under normal driving conditions.
Defective product manufacturing occurs during the production process and is often the result of inadequate quality control or the use of substandard materials. Typically, problems in design and manufacturing result in product recalls and can lead to serious injuries.
Products known to be potentially dangerous must include warnings or instructions on how to properly and safely use them. When these warnings are absent or insufficient, the consumer is at risk. Inadequate warnings are often seen in prescription and over-the-counter drugs that do not list dangerous side effects or warn about harmful interactions with other drugs.
