Every year, dozens of products are recalled in an effort to keep consumers safe from injuries that could result because of defective products. Unfortunately, hundreds of people may suffer injuries from a defective product before the manufacturer becomes aware of the problem.

If you are a victim of an accident caused by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC can help you pursue financial recovery for your injuries and damages.

Types of Defective Product Cases

There are a number of types of products liability issues that may warrant a personal injury lawsuit, including:

  • Defective products warnings
    Products are required by law to warn consumers of dangers if the product is toxic, cannot be made safe or is otherwise harmful. However, warnings that are inaccurate, poorly written or completely lacking make the warning itself defective. Injuries resulting from a defective warning are grounds for a personal injury case.
  • Manufacturing defects
    Sometimes mistakes made during the manufacturing process make a product more dangerous than it should be, even when used correctly. Such mistakes may make the manufacturer liable for injuries resulting from as-directed product use.
  • Design defect
    Product design itself can contribute to accidents and injuries. The product designer may be held liable if the design makes a product unreasonably and excessively dangerous when used as intended.
  • Defective medications
    Individuals may seek damages when an appropriately prescribed medication causes harm because of dangerous side effects or a failure to have the intended effect at all.

Issuing a recall does not always negate a manufacturer’s liability for injuries.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

Defective product cases can be highly technical. In addition to proving liability, those seeking compensation must also prove that they were correctly using the product.
