When the Issue Is Technical
Many product liability cases involve technical details and require someone with mechanical or engineering knowledge to determine what went wrong. That is why we work with experts who are specialists in their field. They can review the incident and provide testimony about the product defect and resulting injury.
Dangerous and Defective Consumer Products
Many people are injured by a defective product in the home by:
- Power tools
- Household appliances
A defective medical device, such as a pacemaker or stent, can also cause injury or death.
Machines with moving parts can cause serious injury or disability, such as broken fingers or hands, amputations or blindness. Safety guards are supposed to be in place to prevent these injuries. Faulty or missing electrical guards can also cause burns and death from electrocution. Other product liability problems include:
- Design flaws
- Inadequate instructions
- Insufficient warnings
- Manufacturing defects
