The products you purchase from retail stores, wholesalers, supermarkets, auto dealers or specialty outlets are manufactured with a guarantee that the item is not defective and is safe for use. However, there are many products that were once said to be “safe” and have seriously injured the consumer who used the product. There are three main categories designed for defective products, which may result in a products liability claim:

  • Design Defects
    flaws in the item’s conceptual design
  • Manufacturing Defects
    specific defects which occur during the manufacture of the product
  • Defects in Marketing
    improper instructions or failures to inform consumers of potential and latent dangers in the product

Examples of Defective Products:

  • A bicycle falling apart while you are riding around the sidewalk
  • A microwave sparking and starting a fire
  • A crib collapsing on your child, baby strollers or feeding bottles
  • A small toy part coming off and choking your child
  • Equipment failure at work
  • Automobile products: auto recalls, tires, car seats, safety belts, brakes, etc.
  • Medicines: pharmaceutical, over-the-counter drugs or diet pills.
