What Determines a Product as Dangerously Defective or Improperly Safeguarded?
There are many cases in industrial settings where workers or the manufacturers of a product are assembling a product too quickly, and they do not check whether a product is defective. If a product is simply sloppily put together, this does not necessitate a lawsuit. However, if the product’s defect causes any kind of illness or injury, then you can claim that the product was either defective in its design or the process of assembly.
Manufacturers and design engineers have the responsibility of carefully checking that an item, along with its process of construction, are safe for the consumer. If, for some reason, there is no ability to eliminate or guard against all forms of harm potentially caused by the product, the manufacturer must include clear warnings that the product can result in injury or death if not handled properly, according to provided instructions. When a product does not include these safety features, it is hazardous even if it was correctly assembled.
Types of Product Liability Cases
Technically, any kind of product can pose a dangerous situation if it has defective parts, was improperly assembled, or did not include clear warning labels. However, certain products tend to repeatedly result in injuries more than others.
Just a few examples of liability cases that are extremely common include those dealing with defective or improperly designed:
- Automobile parts
- Batteries (particularly lithium batteries used in mobile devices such as phones, computers, cameras, or e-cigarettes)
- Electric or battery-operated power tools
- Machine parts
- Airplane parts
- Cranes or other construction equipment
- Children’s toys
- Cleaning products
Powerful Guidance in Complex Situations
When you or a loved one have been a victim of a product liability injury, it can be difficult even knowing where to start with filing a claim. Unlike other personal injury cases, such as an automobile accident or medical malpractice case, you might have no idea who caused your suffering. Moreover, many of these cases do not involve a single individual, but an entire corporation or manufacturing company. Do not be anxious about the idea of confronting a massive business or organization when you have Michael J. Prisco on your side. No matter how large the opposing side is, they have the responsibility of compensating for the injury and pain you have suffered.
