Types of Defective Products Lawsuits
You should be able to trust that the products you buy are safe. When a faulty product harms you or a loved one, a skilled lawyer at Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers can take legal action against the product’s designer, producer, or seller, based on the type of defect in the product.
Some products are inherently defective. The design behind these products is flawed and dangerous. Every product manufactured with this faulty design will have the same flaw. An example of a product with a design defect would be a hairdryer that melts when turned to the highest heat setting.
Products with manufacturing defects have safe designs. The problem occurs during the manufacturing process. Sometimes, manufacturers try to cut corners to save on costs or time, by using cheaper materials or inadequately skilled labor. An example of a product with a manufacturing defect would be a piece of furniture that was incorrectly assembled with the wrong bolts and screws. As a result, it collapses when someone sits in it.
Inadequate Warning Defects
Some products become unsafe if they are not used correctly. Manufacturers and retailers must include operating directions that instruct consumers how to use a product correctly and warn of its inherent dangers.
Our winning attorneys have successfully handled all types of product liability claims in Bethlehem. We can assess your case to determine who is at fault for your injuries and pursue the compensation you deserve from the negligent parties.
