Every year in the United States, defective products kill over 22K people and injure 10% of the population. A defective product can carry a design defect that makes it dangerous for consumers or workers.
Defective products include car components, children’s toys, furniture, drugs and medical devices, child car seats, power tools, gas and electrical appliances, and much more.
Over 400 defective products are recalled each year but before the recall happens these products injure or even cause death to consumers. These cases require a thorough investigation and often the knowledge of numerous experts.
Manufacturing defects can lead to very serious auto accidents. Either the driver of the vehicle or one of the passengers may suffer serious injuries or even death due to defects in the vehicle’s design or failure to function properly of a defective component in the car. In many cases, the car accident or crash may be caused by a negligent driver, but the car's design or components may contribute and lead to injuries or fatalities.
Drug and medical device manufacturers must provide warnings about the dangerous side effects of their products and not sell or market medical products that are defective or unreasonably dangerous. Patients who agree to have medical devices implanted believe the product will improve their quality of life. However, many of these products and additional medical devices turn out to be defective:
Once a recall is issued, stores are required to pull the product from their shelves, but the manufacturers can still be financially liable. A consumer or a user of a product suffers serious injury or death due to defects in the product’s design or failure from mechanical or manufacturing issues.

Nearly 4,000 construction workers are killed on the job on an annual basis, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. On average, this adds up to more than 12 deaths every single day. The more sophisticated advanced technology heavy machinery becomes, the greater the danger of injuries caused by operational failure or improper labeling. Commonly unsafe construction equipment or recalled objects in the construction industry include:
Airplanes, helicopters, and boats are complex machines, and just one defective part can trigger an accident. Product liability claims are brought when there are defects in the equipment, defects in the design, or other structural problems. Mechanical problems may contribute to a crash and the resulting deaths and injuries. Under the theory of strict liability, manufacturers can be held liable for such mechanical problems.
If thrill-seekers suffer catastrophic and permanent injuries during the normal course of amusement park rides, the design of the ride and inadequate warnings become primary issues. Amusement rides are now more technically advanced to provide a greater thrill factor and often an amusement accident can be traced to a cause that can give rise to an amusement park product liability action, including:
Many of the accidents and injuries caused each year by defective or unsafe products could have been avoided. It's the duty of manufacturers, distributors, and sellers to produce and sell products that are safe.
Many times, manufacturers and sellers disregard these obligations and put profit over our safety.
If a product has caused an injury due to design-related factors, like unsafe design, manufacturing defects, or the failure to provide proper instructions and documentation on their label, you can file a product liability lawsuit.
