When a consumer purchases a product, there is an expectation of safety and utility. In other words, we expect the things we buy to do what they say they will do. Unfortunately, when that is not the case, the results can be tragic.
A defective product is defined as one that is either designed with defects or that was manufactured improperly. In either case, a defective product can cause injury to consumers, including infants and children. The products liability claim can place blame for the defect on the product designer, manufacturer, supplier and/or retailer, depending on the circumstances. Each of these individual parties could potentially be held liable for a consumer’s injuries.
