An example of a product defect is a children's toy that is small enough for an infant to put into his or her mouth and swallow. Over time we have learned that children will put toys into their mouths and, tragically, that small toys create a choking hazard. Most toy manufacturers no longer make children's toys that are small enough for infants to swallow. The reason for this is product liability lawsuits. The yellow and red airbag warning on the visor of your car is also there because a car manufacturer was sued.
Our lawyers view consumer safety as one of the most important facets of our practice. Defective products injury untold numbers of victims every year and also result in many tragic deaths. If you or a loved one is injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation from the company that made the product, the store that sold it, or both.
A product may be defective in design, in manufacturing, or in the warnings that are provided to consumers. A design defect means the recipe for making the product is wrong. Design defects will be present in all of same products made by the manufacturer. A manufacturing defect is a mistake that is made in assembly, such as not tightening a bolt. A product is also considered defective if the warnings or instructions provided to consumers are inadequate.
