Types of Defective Product Lawsuits

For any type of defective product claim the lawsuit will fall into one of three categories: defective design, defective manufacturing, and improper warnings. Our defective product lawyers handle any of these types of claims for the following potentially hazardous products:

Airbags: This safety feature comes standard in all new vehicles and the biggest manufacturer, and most often sued maker is Takata airbags. When working properly, they can save lives in a crash. However, if the airbag fails to deploy or deploys improperly, it can result in worse injuries for drivers and passengers.

Vehicle Rollovers: SUV rollover accidents, as well as minivan and tractor trailer rollover accidents, often occur because these vehicles have a high center of gravity and narrow track width. This causes instability in the vehicle in certain driving situations.

Roof Crush: Failure to design automobiles that have safe roofs can put the vehicles’ inhabitants at serious risk for injury or death in a rollover accident.

Seatbelts: This is another standard safety feature, also made by Takata among others, of most automobiles that can produce serious injury or death when it works improperly. In fact, even when working as designed, seatbelts can lead to serious injuries in an accident.

Tire Defects: Tire problems are one of the most common contributors to auto accidents. Forms of tire failure include tire tread separations, tire defects, and tire blowouts. When one of these issues occurs, the potential for injury and even death is high for the vehicle’s driver and passengers.

Industrial Machinery: Among the most hazardous workplaces in the United States are industrial settings. Defective industrial machinery can have a deadly impact for the equipment operator and other workers, including explosions, limb loss, serious burns and more. Examples are forklifts, grainery elevators, lathes, drill presses and others.

Medical Devices: There are hundreds of medical devices used by medical practitioners every day to treat a wide range of conditions. When there are shortcuts taken in the design, testing and production phase, or when doctors don’t use these devices in an FDA-approved way, the patient can experience even more serious medical problems.

Dangerous Drugs: The manufacturers of prescription drugs have the responsibility to take all possible measures to ensure the safety of their drugs. When defective prescription drugs cause further illness or even kill the patient, the liable parties should be held responsible.

Defective Household Products: Electrical appliances, furniture, personal grooming items and other seemingly harmless items around your house have the potential to cause serious injury or death when defective either in design or manufacturing, and with improper label warnings.
