Defective Products

When a product falls short of expectations and harms us or damages property, we are afforded legal protections.

Did you know? You only have to show that the product was the most likely cause of the damage or injury.

When Can Someone Bring A Lawsuit For A Defective Product?

Defective products span many categories. Some examples of defective products include:

  • Poorly designed batteries that explode and cause burns
  • Incorrectly manufactured surge protectors that become overloaded and cause house fires
  • Toys with unsafe removable parts that result in children choking

Who Is Responsible For The Defective Product?

According to the Consumer Protection Act, product safety responsibility falls on producers, which include:

  • Manufacturers
  • Importers
  • Businesses that supply store-brand products
  • Businesses that change the safety of a product, e.g., by customizing or servicing it
