Defective Products

There is a responsibility of anyone who designs, manufactures or sells products to ensure that their products are safe when used as intended. If the product is defective in any way, it can cause people to suffer from serious injuries. Defective products are overseen by products liability laws, which gives a consumer the right to seek compensation for any injuries that a product may have caused them. The lawyers at Eckert Law Group, LLC, are experienced personal injury attorneys who are here to help you if you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product.

Parties Responsible For Defective Products

There are thousands of injuries that occur each year as a result of a dangerous or defective product. You are able to file a products liability suit against the designer, marketer, manufacturer or distributor of a dangerous product if you sustained an injury from utilizing the product. Those who are involved in the making or selling of the product have a responsibility to consumers to make sure that their product is safe and will not cause any harm.

Different Types Of Products Liability Cases

If you have been injured by a defective product, there are three different types of products liability cases that your case could fall into. The three types of cases include:

  • Defective instructions or insufficient warnings — When a product is not labeled properly and does not have the appropriate warning labels, serious injuries could be sustained. If insufficient knowledge is given to the consumer and they are injured as a result, the responsible party may be held responsible for the consumer's injuries
  • Design defects — Situations in which there was a flaw in the design of the product and that flaw caused the product to become defective. If the designer of the product failed to add any safety features that would be necessary for safe usage, they may be held accountable for any injuries that they caused
  • Manufacturing defects — Defects that occur when a product was properly designed, but an error during manufacturing process caused the product to become unsafe. If the manufacturer used parts that were substandard or if they were negligent in any other way, they may be held accountable for any injuries that they caused

It is imperative that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney if you have sustained injuries from using a defective product. The attorneys of Eckert Law Group, LLC, have the necessary skills and experience to help you get the compensation you deserve.
