Consumers trust that companies will only sell them products that are safe for public use. However, thousands of people become injured annually due to defective products. When an individual is injured by a defective product, it is important that they consider their legal options. The public has somewhat of a responsibility to hold companies accountable when they are negligent. In a product liability case, the injured party is responsible for proving that the company was negligent in creating a safe product for consumer use and that if it weren’t for such negligence, they would not have sustained such injuries.
There are several different causes that may result in a defective product. Some of these include the following:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Failure to warn or improper labeling
- Strict liability
- Warranty breach
A lot of people feel as though they won’t be the one to have a freak accident due to a defective product. However, any product that one can think of has the potential to be defective. Defective products can be anything from household goods like kitchen appliances, children’s toys, food, blow dryers, washing machines, lawn mowers, furniture and anything else one can think of. However, industrial products and automobiles are also commonly found to have defects.
