Goldblatt Singer - Experienced Household Product Liability Lawyers
When you purchase a product to use around the house, you expect it to be safe, and product manufacturers have a responsibility to make sure that it is.
However, sometimes household products have defects that can cause serious injuries. Whether a design flaw, manufacturing error or a missing warning label, these defects put consumers at risk. When injuries happen, the companies who make the products should be held accountable.
Types of Product Defects
Product defects generally fall into the following categories:
- Design Defects are defects that are inherent in a product’s design. This means that even if a product was manufactured perfectly, it still would have been a risk to consumers.
- Manufacturing Defects are caused by errors during the manufacturing process.
- Marketing Defects involve errors in marketing or labeling, including false or misleading advertising or the omission of an important warning label.
