Consumers expect that any product they buy will be safe for their families. But every year, hundreds of defective products are recalled because of faulty manufacturing or design. In some cases, these defective products are only recalled after they have already harmed numerous adults and children. Defective consumer goods have caused just about every type of injury imaginable, including burns, fractures, head injuries, blindness, and even death.
What Is Considered a Defective Product?
A defective product is one that becomes dangerous when being used as intended. This defective product causes personal injury due to manufacturing defects, design defects, or incorrect marketing. Any product can be defective but the most common claims are for medical devices, children’s toys, and food products.
To prove product liability in your case you will need to show:
- The product was already defective upon manufacturing
- The product was put on shelves or sold to consumers with no effort made to correct issues
- You or your property was injured or damaged in some way by using the product
