When you buy a product - whether it's an electronic device, a kitchen appliance, or a ceiling fan - you expect it to work. That is, you expect it to do what it was designed to do. But sometimes these and other products simply don't do their jobs. Sometimes they can also cause consumers serious injury.
A person injured by a malfunctioning or dangerous product is generally entitled to seek damages from those responsible, whether it's the manufacturer who made the item, the distributor who shipped it, or the retailer who sold it. The Cape Cod products liability lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III have more than 146 years of combined experience representing clients throughout the state in a wide range of personal injury matters, including those related to defective products. We are dedicated to providing high quality, personalized legal services, and have helped clients recover damages for injuries caused by defective products in the workplace, in the community, and at home.Causes of Defective Products
Despite customer expectations, government oversight, and manufacturer guarantees, defective products find their way into the marketplace all too often. Products can become defective or otherwise dangerous for a number of reasons, including:
- Poor design
- Defective assembly
- Improper construction
- Damage during shipping
- Incorrect labeling
- Insufficient instructions and safety warnings
These and other defects can affect a wide range of products, such as appliances, work equipment, and tools, as well as other goods and devices, including:
- An SUV that rolls over unexpectedly, either in an accident or while rounding a corner
- A seat belt that doesn't work or an airbag that doesn't deploy in a car accident
- A table saw cutting wheel that flies off, causing a workplace injury
- A sanding machine grinding wheel that explodes
- A prescription drug order improperly filled by a pharmacy
