In our everyday lives, it can sometimes seem like everything has a warning label. Of course you wouldn’t use your hair dryer while taking a bath, but there’s a warning label advising you not to anyways. The reason that’s so is because if a product caused injury that way and didn’t include such a warning, the company could be sued for product liability in relation to the costs the injury caused. Personal injury lawyers have a lot of experience dealing with product liability cases and in the event that you have a case, it’s beneficial to contact one. There are, of course, different types of product liability cases.

Defective Design

When you read about things like automotive recalls, this is usually due to defective design—the product doesn’t do what it is supposed to. For example, if a vehicle’s brakes fail, they are not doing their job, and if you crash as a result of being unable to stop, you can hold the auto manufacturer responsible. A defective design product liability case is present when the problem is not caused by poor manufacturing but by poor design—no matter how good the building process, the product would still be defective and/or dangerous. Personal injury lawyers have plenty of experience dealing with defective design cases, and if you’re injured because of something’s design flaw, they can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Defective Manufacturing

Different from defective design, defective manufacturing product liability is what happens when a product’s design is fine, but something when wrong when it was manufactured that ultimately caused someone to get hurt. For example, if a pair of roller skates was manufactured in such a way that the wheels would arbitrarily fall off, causing the user to fall, the skater could hold the company who makes the skates responsible for the manufacturing flaw that caused the wheels to fall off. They would likely also benefit from hiring a personal injury attorney for help holding the company responsible, as lawyers have much more experience handling situations like these.

Inadequate Warnings

Finally, going back to the hairdryer-in-the-bathtub example, companies can be held liable for products that cause injury if there are not appropriate warnings on the label. For example, companies that product at-home hair color kits provide warnings such as the need to wear gloves, the need to rinse out the product at a certain time, etc., in order to protect themselves against a lawsuit from someone who, were it not for the warnings, would get a chemical burn. If you get injured by using a product that has no warnings of potential danger, contact a personal injury lawyer for help seeking compensation.
