When a consumer product turns out to be dangerous and causes serious injury or illness, there may be grounds for a product liability claim. Every year, thousands of defective and unsafe products are removed from the market with a recall.
Unfortunately, many defective products are only found after multiples injuries have been reported.
Filing a Product Liability Claim
In general, there are three different kinds of product liability claims:
- The product was manufactured with a defect
- The product has an inherent (and dangerous) design flaw
- The product has insufficient instructions and warnings regarding proper usage
In each of these categories, it must be proven that the issue with the product caused an accident and the subsequent injury. At Thomas J. Henry, our experienced product liability attorneys can help evaluate your claim (for free) and determine which category your accident and injury fall under. Call us for a free consultation at any time — we are available 24/7, nights and weekends.
Types of Defective Consumer Products
Unsafe and defective products come in many forms. Almost any product can prove to be dangerous if it was manufactured with a defect, designed improperly, or sold to consumers without sufficient usage instructions. Here are a few examples of defective and recalled products:
- Kitchen appliances
- Handheld electronics
- Infant or baby products
In addition, millions of vehicles are recalled each year in the United States due to manufacturer defects. Dangerous pharmaceutical medications and faulty medical devices also affect thousands of lives each year, causing long-lasting and permanent injury and illness.
Common Product Liability Injuries
Thousands of tragedies occur each year when people use dangerous products. Depending on the specific defect, injuries can vary from minor cuts and lacerations to paralysis, brain injuries, and death. Here are a few examples of injuries commonly associated with defective products:
- Asphyxiation (through choking or strangulation)
- Broken bones and fractures
- Soft tissue injuries
- Cuts and lacerations
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Permanent disfigurement or scarring
- Amputation/loss of limb
- Spinal cord and neck injuries
- Severe medical conditions
