Covington Product Liability Attorney
The consumer goods that we purchase for ourselves, our families, and our homes serve important roles in our lives. If – instead of doing the job that it’s purchased to do – one of these products leaves you or a loved one injured, it’s a difficult situation that requires the professional legal guidance of a knowledgeable Covington product liability lawyer.
Common Types of Product Liability Claims
While every product liability claim has its own distinct circumstances, there are several categories that encompass most claims, including:
- Design Defects – Some products are based on faulty designs that leave the product dangerous to begin with. A doll for young children that intentionally incorporates small, removable parts (a choking hazard for children under the age of three) is a good example of a design defect.
- Manufacturing Defects – Some products are based on safe designs but are damaged (or otherwise made defective) during the manufacturing process. A doll for young children whose buttons tend to fall off (another choking hazard) due to a flaw in manufacturing is a good example of a manufacturing defect.
- Labeling Defects – Some products have inherent dangers, and their manufacturers are responsible for providing consumers with adequate warnings and/or safety instructions. A doll with small parts (choking hazard) that is not intended for young children but that fails to adequately alert parents to this fact is a good example of a labeling defect.
