I was injured by a defective product, is anyone responsible?

Unfortunately, you can probably find at least a couple defective products on the shelves of many stores today. In fact, almost daily, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) adds additional dangerous and/or defective products to its recall list.

However, while some consumers can use this list to avoid dangerous purchases, what happens when an unsuspecting individual has already purchased a defective product, and is subsequently injured by it? Who is responsible? The store, the manufacturer or someone completely different?

Well, depending on the circumstances, there are several different parties involved in the product's distribution that may be liable for your injuries, including:

  • The manufacturer of the defective product
  • The store that sold you the defective product
  • The wholesaler of the defective product
  • The manufacturer of component parts within the defective product
  • The company that installed or assembled the defective product, if applicable

In some cases, establishing liability for injuries caused by a dangerous product may depend on the specific type of product defect involved. The three primary types of product defects include:

  • Design defect is when a product is designed wrong from the start, meaning it may pose a danger to anyone who buys it.
  • Manufacturing defect is when there is problem with the manufacturing process, meaning large batches of products may be dangerous or defective.
  • Marketing defect is when there are problems with the way in which a product is sold or marketed, such as insufficient warning labels.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to a defective product, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after seeking medical care. A skilled attorney can review the circumstances of your injury and help determine what legal options may be available. You may have a limited time to bring your claim, so there is no time to waste.
