Defective Product Lawyer
If you’ve suffered catastrophic injuries due to a faulty or defective product, contact an experienced defective product attorney. You may be entitled to financial compensation.
Consumers should always be able to trust that the items they purchase are going to be safe for them to use as they were intended. But this is not always the case. Defective products cause severe injuries every day across the United States. And when they do, consumers suffer debilitating injuries that can alter the course of their lives forever.
If this sounds like what you’ve been through, you are not alone. Our team at Monge & Associates is here to help you through the claims process so you can be awarded the compensation you deserve. Your dedicated defective product lawyer will handle the legal details of your case so you can recuperate.
Continue reading to learn more about some of the different types of defective products claims and who might be at fault for your defective product injuries.
Types of Product Defects
Although there are countless different types of products that could malfunction or be defective, there are usually only three different types of defects: manufacturing defects, design defects, and failure to warn (also called labeling defects).
Manufacturing defects will typically only affect one or a few of a certain item. Here, there is some kind of problem with the way this specific item was made. An example could be a car missing its airbag inflator.
Design defects are different. Here, there is an inherent safety issue with the way the entire product is designed. An example could be a line of toaster ovens that catch fire when turned up to their highest setting.
Then you have failure to warn, or labeling defects. A product’s label must warn the consumer of any risks associated with the product’s use. Here, that hasn’t happened. An example could be a power drill that doesn’t warn the consumer to only use the provided power cord because using other power cords can cause electrocution.
Your lawyer will closely examine the details of your case to find out which type of product defect caused your injuries and what your next steps should be.
Who Is Responsible for Your Defective Product Injuries?
The type of defective product case you have will largely determine who can be found at fault for your injuries. In theory, anyone involved in the distribution, design, or production of a defective product could be at fault. But some of the specific parties that could be found culpable for your defective product injuries include:
- Product designers
- Product developers
- Product manufacturers
- Parts manufacturers
- Safety inspectors
- Other employees and corporations
