Injured by a Product:
Everything You Need To Know
It is not every day you are injured by a defective product, let’s get you up to speed.
The manufacturer of any product is liable if their product does not function properly and injures a person or damages property.
You can break the manufacturer’s liability down into 3 categories: manufacturing defects, design defects, and failure to warn. Failure to warn is also referred to as marketing defects.
First and foremost:
Save the Defective Product as Evidence!
If you or a loved one suffer a defective product injury, it is critical to save the evidence. It is very important to save and preserve the object and any other evidence of what happened. It can be difficult to prove your case without having the physical object that caused the injury.
The manufacturer of the product can be held liable for their product’s mishap which caused an injury if they used poor-quality materials or shoddy workmanship that lead to the failure.
Liability for design defects come into play when there was nothing wrong with the manufacturing of the product, but the design itself was inherently dangerous.
Failure to Warn (Marketing Defects)
Manufacturers can be held responsible for injuries caused by their products if they failed to put appropriate warning labels on the packaging or if they fail to announce a recall properly or in a timely fashion.
