Defective Products Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries and Even Death

Product liability is the area of personal injury law that holds manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers responsible for any consumer injuries caused by dangerous and defective products.

There are three major types of product liability claims:

  1. Design defect claims: When a product’s design is inherently dangerous or useless — no matter how it is manufactured — there is a design defect.

  2. Manufacturing defect claims: When a product is made unsafely — perhaps due to poor workmanship or the use of sub-par materials — there is a manufacturing defect.

  3. Marketing defect claims: When a manufacturer fails to warn consumers of non-obvious risks associated with the use (or foreseeable misuse) of a product, there is a marketing defect.

Sometimes products are recalled (either by the manufacturer or the federal government) when a potentially dangerous defect is discovered. Unfortunately, recalls often happen only after people have suffered serious injury.

Be Aware of Potentially Dangerous Products in the Marketplace

Virtually any product can give rise to a product liability lawsuit if it’s not designed, manufactured, and sold with consumer safety in mind.

Here are some of the unfortunately common types of product liability cases:

  • Dangerous or defective automotive components, such as airbags, ignition switches, seat-belts, and braking systems

  • Dangerous building and construction materials

  • Dangerous or defective medical equipment

  • Dangerous prescription and over-the-counter drugs

  • Inadequate drug warning labels

  • Contaminated foods and beverages

  • Dangerous cosmetics and household chemicals

  • Dangerous or defective appliances, such as water heaters and washing machines

  • Dangerously flammable clothing

  • Dangerous or defective children’s products, including car seats, formulas, and toys

At Basch & Keegan LLP, we stand by the principle that most accidents should never happen. This is especially true in product liability cases. Too often, manufacturers cut corners to cut costs, and consumers pay the price — not with their wallets, but with their health.
