Have You Been Injured by a Dangerous or Defective Product?
Manufacturers are legally obligated to design, produce, and sell products that are free of flaws and safe for use. Consumers should be able to purchase a product that poses no danger to them when operated according to the instructions and intended use. In addition to the manufacturers of a product, wholesalers and vendors are also held responsible when a potentially harmful item is placed in the hands of consumers.
How Do Defective Products Find Their Way to Consumers?
When a defective product leads to injury or death, there can be multiple causes at work. These causes include:
- Erroneous or Inadequate Warning Labels & User Manuals: Any product that poses danger of any kind to consumers should have sufficient warning labels that explain what actions or uses of the product could be harmful. Additionally, user manuals and instructions should contain sufficient information for proper operation or use of the product.
- Inadequate Product Testing: Most, if not all, product defects should be caught during product testing. When defective products aren’t fixed and end up in the hands of consumers, the failure to properly test the product could be a major factor.
- Poor or Faulty Product Design: From the very first concept of a product, there is the possibility that the design or an aspect of the design is faulty. If this fault isn’t caught in the design or testing phase, there is a good chance it will end up on the market.
