Seek Compensation After an Injury Caused by a Defective Product
When you purchase a product, you expect to use it without incident. Unfortunately, defective products sometimes injure consumers, and these injuries can occur in a variety of ways. If a defective product has injured you, you may be eligible to file a product liability lawsuit and seek compensation for your injuries.

What Is Considered a Defective Product?
A defective product can be any product that causes an injury due to a flaw in the design, manufacturing, or labeling. Manufacturing errors are the most common cause of defective product-related injuries.
Examples of defective products may include:
- Toys with small parts that can cause choking injuries
- Vehicles with faulty airbags
- Flammable clothing that catches fire
- Defective tires that cause a crash
- Medical devices with design flaws
- Overloaded electricity cords
- Faulty power tools
- Defective household appliances
In order to prove that a product is defective and thereby the cause of your injuries, you will need to prove that the product is inherently and unreasonably dangerous when used as intended. You may also need to prove that the danger was not made clear to the consumer or that the manufacturer (or another liable party) failed to warn you. In many cases, the product's warning labels and instructions are used as evidence of the manufacturer's knowledge of the product's risk.
Who Is Liable for a Defective Product Injury?
The manufacturer of the product is usually the party that is liable for your injury. However, other parties that were involved in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of the product may also be responsible. In short, the liable entity will depend on the circumstances of the injury and may involve multiple parties.
Examples of potentially liable parties in a product liability case include:
- The product manufacturer
- The parts manufacturer
- The wholesaler
- The retail store owner
- The product installers or assemblers
