What Are Defective Products?
A defective product is any product that has made it to market with some defect in design, manufacturing or marketing that makes it dangerous to use. There is a vast array of defective products that have been the subject of lawsuits, including:
- Dangerous opioid prescription painkillers
- Metal grill brushes
- Defective tires
- Defective seatbelts
- Defective pharmaceuticals
- Defective tools
- Defective appliances
- Defective toys
Our experienced attorneys have handled many types of product cases, including those involving grill brushes. In those cases, people have suffered horrific internal injuries after ingesting food containing one or more metal wires from a grill brush. The bristles can come loose from the brush, and then puncture or otherwise injure the esophagus, stomach, digestive tract or other internal organs.
Elements of a Defective Product Claim
If you were injured by a product because of a defect in its design or manufacture, or because you weren't properly warned of inherent dangers, then you probably have a claim to pursue compensation for your injuries. The only way to know for sure is to consult our experienced attorneys.
We investigate what happened in your case and determine how the product caused an injury. Manufacturers can and should be held accountable for unsafe products and for failing to warn about inherent dangers in certain products. You deserve full compensation for an injury caused by a defective product. Each case is unique, but generally we pursue compensation for the following:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death expenses (in the event you lost a loved one because of a defective product)
We want you to make a full physical, emotional and mental recovery from your injuries. We will tirelessly work to maximize the compensation you receive for the harm done by the defective product.
