Defective & Dangerous Products

Have you ever stopped to really think about how many different types of products you utilize each day? From your toiletries, to your computer at work – Americans make use of an unfathomable number of products on a yearly basis. Any time that you purchase an item, you have specific legal rights as a customer. The absolute most basic is the right to stay safe from harm when making use of the product. Big businesses have an obligation to develop and produce safe items. Once they fail in this responsibility and you are harmed by an unsafe item, you need to contact Shlesinger & deVilleneuve. A flawed item can be harmful and place you at risk of considerable personal injury.

There are three categories for product liability cases:

Products that have been defectively manufactured: This is when a product is flawed as a result of errors during the production of the product; a single product performs inadequately as compared to others just like it, and the deficiency in the product causes injury.

Products that have been defectively designed: These are cases where the design of the product is materially flawed; it is not an instance of a single product malfunctioning, but rather the whole line is defective, and there’s a danger of injury and/or death when making use of it.

Products that do not have adequate instructions or warnings: This product does not offer evident warning or instructions regarding the ideal use, and death or injury is the end result.

Manufacturers are accountable for testing their products or services thoroughly before releasing them to the public, along with providing precise directions for use.
