We use countless products every single day, usually without any worry that they may malfunction or cause us harm. If a product is defective, however, it presents a danger to everyone who uses it – and even to people in its vicinity. Auto parts, children’s toys, appliances, tools, safety equipment, electronics, medical devices, and many other products can cause catastrophic injury or even death. The Becker Law Firm is here to seek justice if this occurs.
If you’ve been harmed by a defective or dangerous product, your only course of action to recover compensation for medical care, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and other losses or injuries is a product liability action. These are complex cases, and your opponent will most likely be a large corporation with considerable resources to fight your claim.
Our Ohio product liability attorneys are here to level the playing field. We have over a century of combined experience and have resources of our own, to investigate and build the strongest cases against negligent manufacturers, designers, distributors, retailers, and others. We settle for nothing less than full justice.
Types of Defects
There are different types of defects that can cause harm to unsuspecting consumers. These include:
- Manufacturing Defects: These typically occur during the assembly or packaging of a product and are not intended to be a part of the product. Manufacturing defects are often found only in a certain number of a company’s product.
- Design Defects: These are inherent flaws in the way a product is designed, rendering it unsafe. This type of defect will typically affect every item, rather than a limited number.
- Marketing Defects: These are defects in the manner in which a product is marketed to consumers, and may include inappropriate or incomplete instructions for use, false advertising, or inadequate warning labels.
