Manufacturing Defects Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

In product liability cases, there are two types of defective products, design and manufacturing defects. Design defects slip by when a product is not properly tested for safety before it is released for purchase by consumers. Manufacturing defects occur when products that are designed to be safe and when used as intended, are incorrectly made. An error in the design or manufacturing process can create products that can pose unreasonable risks to consumers, resulting in serious injuries. When this occurs, the manufacturer may be liable for any injuries that occur.

All products should be safe to use as intended. If there is a risk of injury, manufacturers must provide a warning to inform consumers. When a manufacturing defect occurs, it may alter the performance of the product. There is no warning that the product may be unsafe to use as intended. This can be very dangerous, resulting in injuries that could have been prevented if the manufacturer was more careful in ensuring safety standards were met.

Examples of Manufacturing Defects

Defective products are produced all the time. In most cases, a product recall is used to inform consumers that an error was made by the manufacturer. Unfortunately, this does not occur until after many people have been injured and reported the defective product. Manufacturing defects may affect an entire batch of products, hundreds or thousands that are sold, or it could be just a few. Some examples of manufacturing defects that have occurred include:

  • Installing wiring incorrectly in appliances
  • Using the wrong fasteners or bolts
  • Leaving sharp edges on molded parts
  • Mechanisms that fail to work as designed

If a product has a defect that results in a serious injury or death, the manufacturer may be held responsible and required to pay restitution to the victim or their family. However, these are very complex legal cases that require extensive research and expertise. If you believe your family has been the victim of a manufacturing defect that caused serious harm, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law to explore your legal options.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
