When a consumer buys a product, they hope that the company has taken care and concern to ensure that they offer a quality product to the masses. We buy cars, household products, and industrial products with the idea that we are investing our money in a company that believes in excellence. When regular consumers buy a car or household product, they often put the safety of their family in the hands of the company they bought from or the manufacturer who made the product. When industrial workers buy safety equipment and other products for work, they are even more dependent on the quality of the product. Unfortunately, not all companies meet the level of quality one would hope. Some companies cut corners to cut costs. When this happens, the consumer can be injured. If you were hurt because of a product you bought, you should consider your legal options. If you need to consult with an attorney with experience, contact The Law Offices of Daniel A. Kalish.
Two types of product liability claims
When you are injured by a product, there are two types of product liability claims that may apply to your case: design defect and manufacturer’s defect. A design defect is when a product’s actual design is at fault for the injuries sustained by a person. In these cases, success depends on the ability of an attorney to prove that the injury could have been avoided with an alternative design that would have been safer, economically feasible, and just as practical. A manufacturer’s defect case is when a product is produced differently than it was intended. Products come with a design or a blueprint that explains how to properly manufacture the product. When a company deviates from the intended design and someone is hurt, they can be liable for a manufacturer’s defect, allowing you to pursue damages.
