Defective And Dangerous Products
Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the goods they bring to market. When people are harmed by manufactured goods, the type of situation falls into one of three categories:
- Design defects – When the design of a product is faulty for its intended purposes, this is called a design defect. All individual instances of that manufactured good will be defective.
- Manufacturing defects – When a particular batch of a product is faulty, this is a manufacturing defect. The possibility for harm is limited to that particular run of manufacturing, not every instance of the product on the market.
- Failure to warn – Some products have ways that consumers may use them that are especially dangerous. When the manufacturer can foresee that unintended use and the risk potential, it has a responsibility to warn users of that risk.
Our firm assists those who have been injured by defective and dangerous products such as:
- Defective drugs – The responsibility drug manufacturers have to prevent a dangerous drug from reaching the market includes a number of concerns such as adverse interactions with other medicines, the effects of long term use and side effects.
- Defective medical devices – Medical devices, especially implanted devices, can present a real danger to individuals. Even with extensive testing, a medical device may cause harm that should have been foreseeable.
