Unfortunately, there is a long history of products that are designed or manufactured improperly that cause seious bodily harm or even death. . From vehicles that role or crush too easily, to manufacturing machines with improper guards, defective products come in many shapes and sizes.
In general, defective products fall into three distinct categories:
- Manufacturing defects. In these cases, the injury was caused as a result of a defect in the manufacturing process.
- Design defects. In these cases, the defect is in the design itself.
- Failure to warn or “inadequate warnings.” Failure to warn cases involve injuries caused as a result of a product being sold without a proper warning to consumers.
Successfully bringing a defective product case requires skill, perseverence and expertise. These cases often involve complex and hotly contested theories of liability that require Berger & Hicks to hire highly skilled expers to prove our case.
