Pursuing Claims for Manufacturing Defects
Tennessee consumers shouldn’t have to worry about being harmed by a product so long as it is used as intended. Unfortunately, manufacturers can fail in a number of different ways when it comes to upholding safety standards. When a product is not manufactured or designed properly, it can be potentially dangerous to consumers if it reaches the market. In situations where a person is hurt in the course of using a defective product, the injured party may be able to hold the manufacturer financially accountable for any pain and suffering or medical bills associated with the injury.
Common Manufacturing Defects
When creating a product of any variety, whether it is a large appliance or a children’s toy, there are a number of issues that can potentially slip through the cracks during production. A few of the most frequently claimed manufacturing defects are as follows:
- Connecting parts with the wrong types of fasteners
- Incorrectly attaching parts
- Failing to use appropriate paint colors to indicate safety warnings
- Incorrectly installing electric circuitry
- Inadequately trimming excess material from molded products
If you or someone you love has been harmed by a suspected defective product, it may be in your best interest to contact an attorney to help you determine your legal options.
