When you purchase a product, you rely on safety measures being taken during the manufacturing process that guarantee it will be safe for you and your family. Many companies, however, more concerned with profit than safety, will rush items onto the market with little to no concern over their true safety for consumers. This can be a kind of roulette played by these companies, hoping the product does not cause harm and, if it does, that any harm it causes will go unnoticed.
It is important to remember that manufacturers are responsible for the safety of their products, and you and your family have a right to seek compensation for products that cause harm. The West Virginia product liability attorneys are prepared to help you recover form any losses you may have faced due to a company’s negligence.
Common Product Defects in West Virginia and Ohio
There are myriad consumer products available today, with possibilities for defect as wide ranging and diverse as the products themselves. It would be impossible to list all potential defects with every available consumer product, but some common traits include:
- Manufacturer defects resulting from some form of abnormality in the process of manufacturing the product. These may represent unique issues, or issues that only affect a small number of products, as is the case in automobile recalls.
- Design defects indicating that the product is defective even before it was manufactured.
- Marketing defects like inadequate safety warnings, or insufficient instructions.
You are entitled to compensation any time a product, used in a manner consistent with its purpose, causes harm or puts you or your family in unnecessary danger.
