Product Defects

You would think that most of the consumer products you purchase at a local store would be safe and when used properly, never cause harm. Unfortunately, as we have learned with overseas imports of lead paint on child products, to tainted peanut butter from unsanitary packaging plants, some products can lead to serious injury, and even death.

Because of this threat of dangerous and defective products, the law provides that those responsible for defects can be held liable for the harm caused by the products they design, manufacture, sell, maintain, or repair. Those who have suffered injury or are survived by a loved one suffering wrongful death from a product-related injury, have the legal right to seek compensation for their losses from those responsible.

Designers, manufacturers, sellers, and repairers of products have a legal duty to prevent the availability of defective products and warn consumers about the potential dangers associated with their products.

While any product has the potential to have flaws that do harm to consumers, the following are common types of defective products:

  • Automobiles, motorcycles and other forms of transportation
  • Household products
  • Toys and other children’s products – small parts that can choke a child
  • Complex machinery that may have not been properly serviced
  • Outdoor goods – gas stoves, torches, etc.
  • Foods – There are recalls every week on the FDA website
  • Medicines

If you or a loved one has suffered serious harm you suspect was caused by a defective product, Mr. Undem can help you determine the cause of the damage and fight to get the compensation you deserve.  As a team, we will meticulously examine your case to determine the cause(s) of injury, the nature of the product defect, and who is liable for the subsequent harm caused. We will then develop the strongest legal strategy possible to help protect and serve your interests.

Many times, defective products cases are subject to a time limit on when they can be filed, so it is important to contact Undem Law Office at your earliest convenience.  This also helps maximize the chances of discovering the best evidence presented in the case.
