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 & Sanders Attorneys at Law to explore your legal options.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
