What is a defective product?

Posted on Thursday, June 30th, 2011 at 8:45 pm    

A defective product is a product (thing) which is unsafe for its intended use.  A product can be unsafe because it is lacking something necessary to make it safe or because it contains something which makes it unsafe.  For example, a power saw lacking an appropriate blade guard could be a defective product.  An automobile which contains an airbag that goes off at extremely low speeds could be a defective product.

Under PA law, if you have been injured as a result of a defective product, you may be able to bring a lawsuit to recover for your injuries.

I have been involved with numerous defective product cases including cases where someone has been killed as a result of defective product. Others have suffered severe injuries such as brain damage, loss of fingers, or even a limb.  These injuries are extremely complicated cases.  A successful personal injury lawsuit often depends upon the preservation of the product and other relevant evidence as well as an immediate inspection by the appropriate experts.  If you suspect an injury was caused by a defective or unsafe product, you should contact us immediately.

Automobile Accidents Cause Serious Injury

In spite of the many safety advances made in the design of automobiles, motor vehicle accidents often times result in significant injuries such as fractures, internal injuries, lacerations, brain injuries, etc. which can cause life long pain and suffering.

Whether or not you can bring a lawsuit against the other individuals involved in the accident depends upon whether or not that individuals negligence or carelessness caused the accident.

It is also important to consider whether or not a defective product such as a defective automobile may have contributed to have caused the accident.  For example, did the airbag fail to deploy when it should have, did the seat back break causing the injured victim to fly out of his seat thereby sustaining a head injury or did an improperly designed gas tank rupture causing the vehicle to catch fire.

As an experienced personal injury attorney, I examine all of the possible causes of the accident including whether a defective product, etc. was a factor.  If you have been injured in an accident, I recommend that you immediately contact us so that we can investigate your possible claims before important evidence is lost or destroyed.

What is a personal injury case?

A personal injury case exists if you have suffered an injury as a result of the acts of someone else or some entity or thing.  For example, automobile collision, slip and fall injuries, injuries resulting from an unsafe product, an injury at the work place.
