Products that are sold by manufacturers, or makers of the product, for public use are supposed to be safe and function as intended. There are a few basic defective product claims, namely: 1) defective design; 2) defective manufacture; 3) failure to warn; and 4) inadequate instructions.
Products must be designed in a manner which does not render the product unreasonably dangerous to the user or consumer. Products must be manufactured such that they are not unreasonably dangerous. Manufacturers must provide adequate warning(s) of the danger(s) posed by their product. Likewise, instruction(s) included with products must communicate sufficient information on the safe use of the product by the user or consumer.
Examples of defective products may include:
Defective automobile products such as tires, air bags, and seatbelts
Defective drugs and medical devices
Defective children’s products such as car seats and toys
It is a manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that they do not place a defective product on the market for sale to the public. If you or a loved one believe they have been injured due to a defective product, contact Rogers Law Group, P.A. to assist you with your case.
