Product Liability Attorneys in South Jordan

Defending the Victims of Negligence

When you make a purchase, you not only expect the product to work for its intended use, but you also expect it to be safe. Product liability refers to injuries caused by a defective product.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury while using a defective product, you have the right to seek legal action. Carr | Woodall can help you file a claim and pursue compensation from the party responsible for the defect.

Types of Product Defects

When addressing hazardous products, defects are generally organized into three categories.

A product can be hazardous because of a:

  • Design defect
  • Marketing or information defect (failure to warn)
  • Manufacturing defect

Design Defects

A design defect arises when a product is designed in a way that makes it unreasonably dangerous. Product designers have a duty to design their products in a way that minimizes the likelihood of injury to the consumer. That means that whenever possible, a designer must take reasonable steps to ensure that a product will not cause injury to a consumer when it is used. Even if the product is being used for something other than its intended purpose, a designer of the product can still be held liable.

Marketing Defects

A marketing defect refers to a company’s failure to warn of certain risks. If a dangerous condition cannot be designed out of a product, the company is still required to warn consumers of the dangers associated with that product.

Manufacturing Defects

The last type of defect is a manufacturing defect. A manufacturing defect occurs when a particular product deviates from all of the other products produced by the manufacturer in a way that makes it more dangerous. For example, if the rubber in a tire was improperly molded, the result can be a defect that makes the tire more likely to explode.

You Deserve Compensation for Your Injuries

Product manufacturers are strictly liable for harm caused by their products. The law requires a very high duty on product manufacturers. If you have been harmed by a product, our South Jordan product liability attorneys at Carr | Woodall want to fight for you. Let us initiate a product liability claim on your behalf.
