Common Yet Dangerous Defective Products
Every product needs to be designed, manufactured, and sold in a way that
makes it reasonably safe when used as intended and even when used not
as intended. When a product does not meet this basic requirement and someone
gets hurt while using that product, it can lead to a product liability
claim or lawsuit. In most states and situations, a product manufacturer
is always held strictly liable for the dangerous defects of their products,
regardless of when that product was first made, purchased, or used.
Examples of common yet dangerous defective products are:
- Auto part defects like explosive airbags or faulty brakes
- Contaminated food like spinach with traces of E. coli
- Dangerous medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants
- Children’s toys with small choking hazards included
Three Ways Products Become Defective
For a product liability claim to stand a strong chance of success, it is
important to know not only that a product was defective but also how that
defect came to be. Not all defects are the same. Even seemingly identical
products made in the same manufacturing center in the same batch can become
dangerously different due to a defect or mistake somewhere in the creation process.
As your chosen Rochester product liability lawyers, it will be part of
our role to identify how the product that hurt you became defective. We
know where to look for valuable evidence that can prove our argument,
too. For example, we might be able to use the discovery process or a court-approved
subpoena to get access to internal manufacturing company records that
reveal they should have known about the dangers of their product.
Our investigations might prove the product became defective due to one
of three errors:
Design: Some products are dangerous from the moment they are designed due to a
defect present in the design product. Takata airbags are infamously defective
due to a design error that called for an unsafe chemical reagent to be
used in the airbag’s inflation device.
Manufacturing: Other products become dangerous during the manufacturing process due to
a mistake on the production line. For example, a preassembled piece of
furniture could collapse if even one screw was forgotten by the assembly crew.
Marketing: More products still technically become defective due to incorrect or inadequate
marketing, advertisements, and product packaging. Dangerous prescription
medicines are a common example of defective marketing when there is no
warning of certain side effects.
