Every day, in hundreds of ways, we place our trust in the manufacturers of the products that we use. These products are supposed to be tested for safety, and yet the number of serious accidents, injuries and deaths that result from defective products prove that this is not always the case.
Defective airbags cause serious brain injury.
Defective medical devices damage health and cause needless deaths.
Defective toys and children’s products injure and kill children.
Defective space heaters lead to fatal house fires.
These are just a few of the many tragic consequences that result from defective products.
In order to recover money for a person injured from the use of a dangerous product, the attorney must prove that the manufacturer was negligent. That negligence can be in the design or manufacture of the product, or in the instructions given to the public about how to use the product.
