Whether we receive them as birthday gifts or early Christmas presents, many of us get a “lemon” once in awhile. In other words, we receive a product that just doesn’t work like it’s supposed to. Perhaps it’s something that was “as seen on TV,” or maybe it’s a cheaper knock-off of a popular gadget or toy. Usually, we can exchange it at the store from which it came, and all is well.
Unfortunately, sometimes these gifted “lemons” actually cause injuries, even serious ones, to the users. What began with a smile of delight turns into a lot of pain and trauma because of the defective products involved.
Other examples of these types of incidents include:
- Tainted batches of food or medicine
- Cosmetics that contain harmful chemicals
- Malfunctioning car brakes or airbags
- Sport utility vehicles (SUVs) that are prone to rollover accidents
- Baby toy parts that easily break off and pose a choking hazard
- Playground equipment that gets too hot under the sun, causing burns to children’s legs
- Slow cookers that explode even though operated according to instructions
- Power tools with inadequate warning labels near blades
- Jacuzzi or hot tubs that get too hot for human skin
- Electronic devices advertised as water resistant that actually cause electrocution when submerged in water
- Clothing that is labeled as fire-resistant, yet is highly flammable

An Injury Attorney Who Knows Product Liability Law Backwards and Forwards
David is not only highly successful and compassionate toward those he represents, he also has a comprehensive understanding of the law. The laws that govern product injury lawsuits focus on three types of defects:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Inadequate warnings of potential injury
Any one of these could be grounds for a product liability lawsuit.
Design defects are what they sound like. These are errors that a company or other entity makes in the design of a product such that normal use results in an accident.
Manufacturing defects are flaws in the making of a product. The design may be perfectly fine, and if executed correctly, it should lead to a safe product. However, if the manufacture of the product is flawed, it results in something that is not safe to operate.
Inadequate warning labels can also constitute grounds for product liability claims. In these situations, consumers get hurt by using the product in a way that the designer and manufacturer should have foreseen, yet they did not attach a clear warning that the item should not be used that way.
It’s important to note that if any of these things causes an accident and injury, that every entity involved in the stream of commerce, from design to manufacture to sales, is liable.
