What Is A Defective Product?

A defective product is any consumer product that causes injury to a person because of the way it was designed, manufactured or labeled. Product liability may apply to:

  • Auto parts (air bags, seat belts, infant car seats and tires)
  • Clothing
  • Electronics (electric shock or fire hazard)
  • Household appliances
  • Power tools and machine
  • Motor vehicles (crash protection, rollover-prone)
  • Dangerous medications
  • Farming equipment
  • Recreational equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Children’s toys

A design defect means that a product was inherently unsafe even before it was built and that every one of those products on the market will continue to pose a danger. Manufacturing defects result from some aberration in the manufacturing or assembly process and may not affect all similar products. Inadequate warnings include deficiencies in the way a product was labeled, such as insufficient product instructions or inadequate safety warnings.

Product Liability Law

The law that governs defective products is “product liability.” The law protects consumers and holds the responsible companies liable for damages. Because the liable party can be the product designer, manufacturer, distributor, seller or any combination thereof, it requires extensive research to determine fault in product liability cases. As a Shreveport product liability attorney, I can guide you through the process of identifying the liable parties and pursuing legal action.

If you have been injured by a defective product, you will need to be able to prove the damage done to yourself or your property. You will also need to show that the product’s danger was unexpected and that you had used it properly and for its intended purpose. Additionally, you will need to show that your injury was not your fault. It is important to keep all receipts, credit card statements, medical bills and any other paperwork related to your purchase and injury by that product.
