Defective Products

Sometimes, the products people purchase can cause them harm. Consumers have the right to expect that the products that they purchase and use are free from design and manufacturing defects that could threaten their safety and health. Product manufacturers, distributors and retailers may be held liable for accidents involving defective products that result in serious injuries.

At King, Crotts and Associates, we believe that the company responsible for the product that injured you should be held accountable. The product’s designer and manufacturer should make sure the product is safe, has clear instructions, and discloses all risks associated with usage. When they fail to ensure their product’s safety, they put people’s lives at risk. By getting a lawyer involved early in the process, you can give yourself a better chance of success and can feel more confident about the direction of your case.

There are generally three types of product defects that incur liability in manufacturers and suppliers: design defects, manufacturing defects, and defects in marketing. Design defects are inherent; they exist before the product is manufactured. Manufacturing defects occur during the construction or production of the item. Defects in marketing deal with improper instructions and failures to warn consumers of latent dangers in the product.
