Defective Products and Pursuing Damages


As a consumer, it is common to take the safety and reliability of the products for granted. While often these products are safe for use, there are some situations where hazards are lurking beneath the surface. From flawed designs and inadequate warnings, defective products can wreak havoc on unsuspecting consumers.

If you or someone you care about was injured due to a defective product in Clearwater, Hudson, or Tampa, talk to a legal professional about your rights. It is possible you have multiple options for pursuing damages, monetary funds that can help you settle medical expenses and other losses connected to your product injury.

Manufacturing Issues and Inadequate Warnings

There are a few different types of product defect claims. Strong defect cases rely on gathering crucial evidence, reviewing the merits of a case, and ensuring that an injured party’s rights are protected throughout the legal process.

  • Manufacturing defects. One common scenario in which consumers may pursue a defective product liability claim is when a manufacturing defect is present. This occurs when a product deviates from its intended design due to errors or issues during the manufacturing process. For instance, a hair dryer that overheats and catches fire due to a wiring error at the factory. In such cases, the manufacturer may be held liable for any resulting injuries or damages.
  • Defective design. In contrast to manufacturing defects, defective designs stem from inherent flaws in a product’s design that make it unreasonably dangerous for consumers to use as intended, such as a car model prone to rolling over during sharp turns due to a design flaw in its stability control system. Despite being properly manufactured, such a design defect can lead to severe accidents and injuries. Pursuing damages in these cases typically involves proving that safer alternatives were feasible.
  • Inadequate instructions. Even products with flawless designs and manufacturing processes can pose risks if consumers there are adequately warned about potential hazards. Clear instructions for safe usage are expected, because, for example, medication lacking proper warnings about potential side effects could lead to serious health complications for users. In cases involving inadequate warnings, liability may extend to the manufacturer or distributor.

Because product companies have extensive resources, there are legal teams in place to defend against claims of product defects. To fortify your claim, enlist the support of a skilled attorney as soon as possible. Then, your lawyer can effectively advocate for your rights and pursue the compensation you need to be compensated for your injuries and losses.
