Product defects occur in the design, manufacture, and even marketing of a product. Defects in design predate product manufacture and account for a majority of product recalls. We will research the available recall history of the product and search for cases of injury due to the manufacture or design of the product. We will then build a solid case, based on all the available data.
Defects in the manufacture of a product are more random and are sometimes not caught until several reports of injury or other issues surface. If is is the product itself that is defective, the manufacturer could be found negligent. Very rarely is liability scalable at this level. It does not matter how hard a manufacturer tries to make a product safe. If that product is introduced to the market with defects, the manufacturer will almost always be held liable.
The law requires manufacturers to make every reasonable effort to prevent product defects.
