When you purchase anything, you have certain rights as a consumer. The most basic of these rights is that your purchase will not bring harm to you or your family. According to The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission, about 200-300 products are recalled each year, despite companies having an obligation to design and manufacture safe products. A defective product can be dangerous and put you at risk of a significant, or even catastrophic, injury.

When products, toys, vehicles or even medical devices fail or cause harm or injury to the consumer, the injured party may have a product liability case. Contacting an experienced product liability attorney will help the injured consumer know what rights they have. At the Pisanchyn Law Firm, our defective product lawyers will review your case at no cost to you during your free consultation.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims can fall within three categories:

  • Manufacturing defects: When a product is manufactured, it must be ensured that all parts are secured correctly and everything is safe. If pieces are not in place, they can pose a potential threat to a consumer’s health.
  • Design defects: During the design phase of production, the manufacturer must ensure that if a product has a dangerous element, the design prevents the consumer from getting hurt when using the product correctly.
  • Failure to warn: If a product has a potential hazard, the manufacturer should provide an accompanying warning that lets the consumer know of the danger. If there is no warning or instructions for proper use, any injury caused by the dangerous products may be considered the responsibility of the manufacturer.

In any of these instances, you could be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer, the retailer, or even the wholesaler.
