Have you been injured by a dangerous or defective product? The lawyers at Hernandez Sunosky, LLP help victims recover for their injuries against designers, manufacturers or sellers of a defective or dangerous product.

What is a Defective Product?

A defective product is one that caused injury to a person due to how it's made or marketed. Defective products can range from toys and household appliances to medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs. A company's liability for the defect product can be caused by any of the following:

  • Design Defects

This type of product liability refers to the poor design of the product that makes it defective. The only way to correct the defect is by changing the original design. Examples of a design defect include:

  • A toy that poses a choking hazard because pieces may detach
  • A circular saw without a hand guard
  • A paintball gun that misfires even with the safety on
  • Manufacturing Defects

This type of product liability refers to an error that occurred while making the product. The defect in the product was not intended and was due to some manufacturing problem. Examples of a manufacturing defect include:

  • Tainted batch of Blue Bell Ice Cream
  • Incorrectly attaching component parts of a seat belt causing it to fail
  • Hip implants prematurely failing because of the materials used
  • Marketing Defects

This type of product liability refers to errors in the way the product is marketed to the public and end-user. This type of defect often involves a company failing to warn a consumer about the correct way to use their product or about potential hazards. Examples of a marketing defect include:

  • Chemicals sold without sufficient instructions for its use and safe handling
  • A pharmaceutical drug that does not include on its label the potential side effects
  • An extension ladder that fails to adequately warn of weight restrictions

What are Common Types of Product Liability Claims?

  • Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs
  • Defective Medical Devices
  • Defective Airbags
