Victims of these defective products deserve to be fully compensated for their injuries, pain and suffering, and countless other expenses forced upon them. When these corporations produce and market defective products, they must be held accountable for the harm they cause, and the law entitles victims to recover in certain circumstances.
First there are Design Defects where a company produces an entire line of products that by their very design are dangerous and faulty. In these cases, every product produced by that design are flawed. The most common examples of this are children’s toys with unsafe parts, power tools without appropriate safety measures, or automobiles that roll over because of their dimensions.
Then there are Manufacturing Defects where something goes wrong when a company produces their product. In this case, the product’s design is not to blame for the injury or death, just the way it was built. Examples of this can be missing or loose screws, a forgotten component, or internally damaged parts.
Lack of Warning can also be a way for injured victims or their families to be compensated. We all know that many products have warning labels on them, but many products have unknown dangers and corporations have a duty to inform consumers of each danger or how to avoid the danger by properly using the product. When a company’s failure to warn consumers results in your injury, the law is on your side.
