As consumers, we expect that the products we purchase will be safe to use. However, when a dangerous or defective product enters the stream of commerce, the results can be catastrophic for consumers and bystanders, resulting in thousands of injuries and deaths each year.
Products liability is the specialized area of law that deals with the liability of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product for injuries resulting from that product. Defective product cases can be quite complicated with several people and parties involved in the production, distribution, and sale of the defective product.
Some common defective or harmful product cases include children’s toys, household and landscaping tools, automobiles, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and industrial machines, as well as food products. Manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers may all be responsible for injuries that are caused as a result of a defective product. If products contain a manufacturing flaw, a design defect, or an inadequate warning, they are considered to be defective.
In defective product cases, it is absolutely essential that measures be taken immediately to preserve evidence so that qualified engineers and other experts can determine the nature and cause of the defect.
Some injuries caused by defective products are injuries to the eyes and hands, amputations, cuts, scars, burns, poison by ingestion or inhalation, fractures, sprains, broken bones, nerve damage and other injuries.
