Consumers expect the products that they buy to be safe to use and in most cases, they are. Products usually must undergo extensive testing before they are approved for sale to consumers. Unfortunately, some health hazards may not be apparent during testing or the company may choose to ignore warning signs in order to make a profit.
Defective products can cause serious injuries that may have lasting effects on your health and well-being. If you or someone you love suffered harm after using a defective product, contact the Minnesota product liability lawyers of Robert Wilson & Associates today at (612) 334-3444.
Types of Product Liability Cases
Product liability is an umbrella term that covers three distinct errors that a manufacturing company can make with its products. Those three errors are:
- Design defects – inherent flaws in every product in a line, making those products dangerous
- Manufacturing defects – isolated flaws that only affect some products in a line
- Marketing defects – failure to label products with adequate warnings
Each of these errors may cause product users serious harm or worse. When an individual suffers harm because of a company’s failure to properly produce or market its goods, the affected person may be entitled to financial compensation for his or her injuries.
Manufacturers should be held accountable when their products injure consumers.
