Defective and Unsafe Products

Product liability can be broken down into three (3) categories:

  1. Defective Design;
  2. Defective Manufacture; and
  3. Defective Warnings.

In some cases, some or all of the above are in play in a particular case.

We all trust that the products we purchase are safe and will not injure us. However, defective and dangerous products injure and kill thousands of persons every year. "Product liability" refers to the law that deals with the responsibility of manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers for injuries or death caused to a consumer or user of a defective or dangerous product.

A product may be defective or dangerous due to a design flaw, a manufacturing defect or a failure to provide adequate warning. For example, the coffee served by McDonald’s in the “McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case” was “defective” due to an inadequate warning as to the fact that it was heated to a degree in excess of acceptable restaurant standards. Our Attorney Kenneth R. Wagner won the “McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case” for his client, Stella Liebeck. If a person is injured by a defective or dangerous product, that person may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer, the distributor, the supplier and the retailer.
