'Product defects' is an area of personal injury law that focuses on defects and errors in manufactured products that ultimately cause accidental injury or death to a human being. Look for attorneys with experience in product defect liability cases if you or a family member has been injured in an accident that might have involved a defective product. We have successfully handled product liability cases.
These cases can include many types of product failures. Toyota recently experienced major problems with defective brakes. Bridgestone/Firestone Corporation was sued for defective tires in a widely publicized case that resulted in a recall of 6.5 million tires.
Defects can occur during the manufacture of a product or during creation of any material that was used in the manufacturing of a product. The error may have been also due to human negligence during the manufacturing process. Determining liability for product defects requires deep investigative skills and knowledge of how to track back ultimate liability to those responsible parties.
Attorneys that handle personal injury cases involving product defects can call in expert witnesses to testify in court about the physics and engineering of materials and parts. They have much experience winning product liability lawsuits and have ready access to recent research that may apply to a specific case.
Persons who believe a product was at fault, or partially to blame for causing an injury or fatal accident, should immediately contact a product defects attorney.
