What Kinds of Consumer Products Can Cause Serious Injuries?
Many people are under the mistaken impression that only products that are generally recognized as “dangerous” are capable of causing serious injuries when they are defective. While it true that a defective power saw can certainly cause severe injuries, you may be surprised to learn that a defective toothbrush can as well. Here are some examples of consumer products that, when defective, often cause serious injuries:
- Motor vehicles
- Baby products
- Household appliances
- Space heaters
- Kitchen equipment
The Three Types of Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims tend to fall into one of three categories:
- Claims based on defective product design
- Claims based on defective product manufacture
- Claims based on a failure to warn consumers about a non-obvious danger (defective marketing)
To determine whether you have a claim, you should have an experienced attorney review your case as soon as you can after an injury caused by a defective consumer product.
