Products manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make sure the items they release to the market pose no unreasonable risk of harm to consumers. Unfortunately, many companies release defective products that cause injuries and death. When this happens, injured victims have the right to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer under product liability law.

In a defective design claim, we must show that the company’s product design fell below legally acceptable standards. This is usually done by comparing the product in question to safe designs that were available at the time it was produced. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we might also look at other manufacturers’ products from the same time period to see if their designs were safer than the product in question.
We can also prove that the company’s product was unreasonably dangerous by showing that it lacked adequate warnings. This is typically done by reviewing the manufacturer’s marketing materials and comparing them to similar products from other manufacturers that contain clear, easy-to-read warnings. We can also review the manufacturer’s sales records to find out how many times they have been notified of safety concerns by various agencies and customers over the years.
