Defective products pose a serious threat to unsuspecting consumers, especially as most consumers trust that the products they use and buy will not harm them. Whether because of underlying design issues or simply poor manufacturing, defective productshave the potential to cause individuals to suffer a serious injury or illness, even if used correctly. Depending on the type of product in question and the extent of the defect, the injuries may be relatively minor in terms of consequences or they may be so substantial that they place the individual's life in danger.
Whether the injury caused by a defective product is something as minor as a mild burn injury or substantial enough to cause wrongful death, at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe victims and their families should not have cope with the consequences alone. Fortunately, many victims of negligent product manufacturers are able to pursue legal action and obtain compensation for the undue suffering they've been forced to endure.
Types of Defective Products
Sadly, products can be defective due to a variety of reasons and negligent actions on the behalf of a manufacturer. Some of the most common types of products that are found to be defective and harmful and the types of defects from which they suffer include:
- Defective Household Appliances
- Toxic Food Products and Containers
- Dangerous Childcare Products and Toys
- Manufacturing Defects
- Design Defects
Any of these defective products or forms of product defects may leave the manufacturers responsible for any injuries and illnesses that such dangerous products cause.
