Product Liability  Help Is Just a Call Away

Wellington Product Liability Lawyer

Your home is full of thousands of products, if not tens of thousands, many of which you use on a regular basis. From your coffee maker to your frying pan, your speakers to your cellphone, your car to your dresser and a hundred other things, consumer products add to our convenience and quality of life. When someone purchases a product, they never expect that it will cause them harm rather than contribute to their life in a positive way. Yet when products are defective, this is exactly what can happen. If you’ve been the victim of a defective product, our Wellington product liability lawyers can help.

Reach our law firm directly today to learn more about our services and what you can expect from our team.

Types of Defective Products

Nearly every product has the potential to be defective and hazardous to a consumer. Common product types that are often recalled for defects include:

  • Automobiles;
  • Furniture and children’s furniture;
  • Children’s toys;
  • Electronics;
  • Household appliances;
  • Prescription and over-the-counter medications;
  • Cleaners; and
  • More.

If you have been harmed by a defective product that isn’t on the above list, please don’t hesitate to call us for legal help.

Types of Defective Product Claims

  1. Defective design. A design defect means that the product is inherently defective based on its design alone; something about the way it is designed is unsafe or unfit for use. For example, consider a chair (designed for adults) that, based on its design, breaks when over 150 pounds of weight are applied. Top-heavy vehicles are another example.
  2. Defective manufacture. When a product is defectively manufactured, on the other hand, it means that something went wrong during the manufacturing process; there’s nothing wrong with the design of the product. For example, a product could be contaminated during manufacture.
  3. Defective label. Finally, a product may be correctly designed and manufactured, but defectively labeled. For example, a prescription medication might fail to list side effects, or a pressure cooker may fail to include directions for use.

Strict Liability

In a product liability claim, you do not have to prove negligence. All you need to prove is that you used the product as intended, the product was defective in one of the three ways listed above, and your injuries were a direct result of that defect. If you can prove these elements, then you can hold the product manufacturer strictly liable for your harm.
