Year after year, thousands of consumers suffer preventable injuries due to defective products. A product goes through many stages throughout its development and creation, so a mistake can be made at any point. Weak design, poor manufacturing, shoddy maintenance, and inadequate testing can lead to a product’s failure. Insufficient information on how to use the product can also cause problems. If there isn’t enough warning in the manual about potential dangers, the results can be catastrophic.
We expect the products we purchase to work properly, but sadly, that isn’t always the case. Airbags can fail to deploy, chairs and tables can collapse, electrical equipment can burn or explode, and toys can fall apart and become a choking hazard.
Accident victims go through painful ordeals, from physical and mental pain to the financial burden of medical bills. If you become injured by a defective product, see a doctor immediately, and then contact us to speak with an attorney who is experienced in product liability law. We can help you take the next step. Be sure to gather the receipt for your purchase, the model number, manual, and packaging – any information you can find about the product.
