When You've Been Injured By a Consumer Product
Defective Product Attorney
A defective product attorney works with victims of dangerous products sold on the market. It may be hard to imagine a product that causes harm to consumers at your local store. However, recalls are generally a good indication of a product that was defective or even dangerous. When lettuce must be recalled there was generally a group of people who fell ill from eating the product. Once they made complaint or formed a lawsuit, the product was recalled. Although lettuce is a common example of this products go wrong on three different levels.
First, there are design flaws. For instance when a product like the brakes in a car are prone to breakage this could have been a design flaw that then leads to recall after an injury has occurred. Next, there are manufacturing issues that cause a dangerous product. This is when our lettuce comes in. Since the lettuce is exposed during the picking and packaging process, it is considered manufacturing. Finally, there are marketing flaws. This is when a product is improperly labeled. For example, if a child’s toy can only handle 120 lbs (and is not labeled) but a child at 160lbs breaks the toy and is caused serious injury.

Even if a retailer was not responsible for injury associated for the product, they may still be partially responsible. If a retailer was aware of the danger they were negligent. For instance, if a store continued to sell contaminated food products despite recall warnings.
There are three main ways that a product becomes defective:
