Along with medical malpractice cases, this is a highly specialized arena of personal injury law that covers a wide spectrum of mass-produced consumer goods that arrive in
the marketplace for folks of all ages. When a manufacturing, construction, or design flaw exists, or a product is simply defective, serious injuries can occur.
There are many types of products that fall into this category. What comes to mind quite frequently in the realm of defective products are poorly made toys and games for children which are especially dangerous, as they can be swallowed and cause choking which could lead to death. And when a malfunctioning drug pump dispenses the wrong dosage of medication to a sick or elderly patient, the consequences can be just as dire.
The companies that make these defective products, sadly, sometimes do so willfully, as they may seek to cut expenses by using inferior, imitation, or simply the wrong parts, during assembly.
And while most of these types of injuries occur in the home, without as many spectators as a high-speed car accident, for example, the injuries they leave in their wake should be treated with the same degree of care and seriousness.
Product liability cases require the delicate, compassionate, and knowledgeable resources of an experienced and savvy personal injury law firm.
