What Should I Do If I Was Injured by a Defective Product?

What Should I Do If I Was Injured by a Defective Product?

When we purchase products, we trust that they will work safely. Unfortunately, poorly designed and manufactured products cause people to suffer injuries every day. If a company releases a dangerous product to users without informing them of the risks, they can be held liable for their negligence.

3 Types of Product Defects

Products that pose an unnecessary health risk to consumers open the door to liabilities. Below we have put together the three different categories of product defects:

  1. Design Defect: This is when the design of the product was made unsafe. An attorney can help you demonstrate that the product was unsafe from the early design stages.
  2. Manufacturing Defect: This is when the product’s design was adequate but was manufactured incorrectly--causing the product to be unsafe. This often occurs when the company fails to implement quality control in their factory.
  3. Failure to Warn: This is when the company was aware that the product posed a danger to the consumer but failed to warn them about the risks in the warning labels.

Consumers can’t sue manufacturers for all injuries if the consumer was using the product according to its intended purpose. They can only sue if the injury resulted from a defect or a warning failure.

Seek Legal Guidance

To determine whether the product that caused your injuries had a manufacturing or design defect, you will need to seek legal guidance. An experienced product liability attorney can analyze your case to determine if the product was defective or if the company failed to warn you of the risks. Filing a claim against a company can be challenging since they have the resources to fight against you. For such reasons, having an experienced attorney can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
