When a product is defected or is improperly labeled, it can cause harm and life-threatening illness or injury. Dangerous or hazardous products such as these include:
- Medical equipment
- Prescription and nonprescription drugs
- Air bags
- Car seats
- Industrial machines
Anyone who is responsible for putting the product in your hands, including the manufacturer, parts supplier, or even the retailer, can be at fault for your injuries. Castle Law Office will support you and help you seek compensation for your losses.
Types Of Product Liability Claims
The three main types of product liability claims:
- Manufacturing defect cases: The product is designed well, but the way in which it was constructed makes it unsafe. For instance, if a bike was assembled without a bolt that kept one of the wheels on.
- Design defect cases: The design of the product is unsafe, so the product itself is unreasonably dangerous. Design defects also apply to the packaging. For example, an airbag deploys without impact.
- Insufficient instructions or warnings: The product has no foreseeable flaws, but warnings and instructions are lacking. For example, prescription drugs that do not list certain side effects.
