What are defective product injuries?

Illinois residents rely on the products we buy to be safe for use. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the face. The Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid can help if you have been injured by a defective product.

There are many different types of product defects that can affect you. They often fall into problems in three categories: manufacture, design, and labeling.

Problems with design mean the item itself is inherently flawed and dangerous. Perhaps the company manufacturing isn’t aware of this. If they are, they are being negligent by not fixing the issues and continuing to sell products. An example are toys banned for posing a choking hazard by design.

Problems with manufacture means that the item itself is fine, but something in the manufacturing process is not. Examples include certain tires that wear out too easily on one side, or engines that have the potential of stalling out because some parts don’t fit properly. Air bag recalls are a good example of manufacturing failures.

Finally, problems with labeling have to do with how the product is presented to consumers and how consumers are told to use it. For example, if a hair dryer gets heated up near the mouth but that is not warned for, someone could burn themselves on it.

If you have been injured due to a defective product of any sort, you may have options for compensation available to you. You can speak to our attorneys for more information, or take a look at our web page on personal injury, linked here.
