Most defective products don’t have the ability to cause serious injury or death to the user. That being said, this is not always the case. For instance, defective product injury can result from a power tool, car, lawnmower, toy or anything else that is sold to consumers.
Generally speaking, product defect injuries can be a direct result of a design flaw, improper assembly, a malfunctioning part, or the lack of safety instructions and warnings.
If you feel you have been injured by a defective product, you may be wondering what type of rights you have.
Above all else, you must prove that the product is defective. As you will see on the “Defective Product Injuries” page on our website, there are three types of defects:
- Design defects
- Marketing defects
- Manufacturing defects
Who is Responsible?
Typically, a claim for an injury is brought against the retailer, distributor, manufacturer, and/or wholesaler. Your personal injury lawyer can explain your rights, while also determining who is responsible for the injury.
