Product makers often produce unsafe products in an effort to cut costs and increase profits. Unfortunately, these unsafe products can come at the expense of your safety. If you or a loved one is injured or killed by a defective product, you can bring a claim against the manufacturer and seller of the product to compensate you for your financial losses and pain and suffering.

Types of Product Defects
  • DESIGN DEFECT This means that the design of the product makes it unreasonably dangerous for the type of use it is designed for. How well it has been manufactured and the quality of materials used are not relevant.
  • MANUFACTURING DEFECT This means that even though the design of the product is safe, there is a defect in the way the product has been put together that makes it unreasonably dangerous.
  • DEFECT IN WARNINGS OR INSTRUCTIONS Manufacturers are responsible for warning product users of any dangers the product might pose. They are also responsible for instructing users how to properly use the product to avoid unnecessary injuries. If they fail to do this, they can be held liable for injuries that occur.
