Our product liability lawyers in New York pursue compensation for victims of manufacturing defects. Every time you purchase a product, you are rightly making the assumption that the product has gone through extensive testing before being placed on the shelf. Quality assurance is a major part of the manufacturing process and is meant to prevent defective products from reaching consumers. However, there are cases where product defects slip by manufacturers.
Manufacturing defects are imperfections that occur in a typically small percentage of products of a given design due to the fallibility of the manufacturing process. A defectively manufactured product does not conform in some significant aspect to the intended design, nor to the great majority of products manufactured in accordance with that design. Manufacturing defects are a serious matter; defective products can lead to injuries and, in some cases, death. Our product liability lawyers hold manufacturers responsible for their mistakes. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective product due to a manufacturer’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
What Are Some Common Causes Of Manufacturing Defects?
Common causes of manufacturing defects include:
- Incorrect Or Negligent Assembly (Poor Workmanship)
- Defective Parts
- Low-Quality Materials
What Are Some Examples Of Defective Products?
Imagine a car airbag that fails to deploy because the mechanism was installed incorrectly. Similarly, picture a consumer using a power tool built with a defective off-switch; these are examples of possible manufacturing defects that can lead to serious injury.
Who May Be Liable In A Manufacturing Defect Claim?
The manufacturer of the product may be liable if the claimant can prove that the product which caused the injury was defective in the sense that it did not perform as intended. Fault plays no part in the liability equation. A defectively manufactured or assembled product is one that is flawed because, without regard to fault, it was constructed incorrectly. Our product liability lawyers in New York at Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP will help you decide the best course of action for your claim, so you can receive fair and adequate compensation.
