Product Liability Claim:

Product liability is the legal responsibility of manufacturers, distributors, and sellers for injuries caused by defective or dangerous products. You may be entitled to compensation through a product liability claim if you have been injured due to a faulty product. This article will provide you with an informative overview of the process involved in filing such a claim and the importance of seeking an experienced dangerous product lawyer.

When it comes to product liability claims, a product is considered “dangerous” or “defective” if it possesses one or more of the following types of defects:

Manufacturing Defects: A manufacturing defect occurs when a flaw or mistake in the production process results in a product that deviates from its intended design. These defects may affect a single unit or a batch of products, making them inherently dangerous for consumers. 

Examples of manufacturing defects include:

  • Faulty wiring in electrical appliances.
  • Contaminated food or medication due to improper processing.
  • Weakened or cracked components in machinery or vehicles.
  • Improperly assembled or glued parts in furniture or toys.

Design Defects: Design defects refer to inherent flaws or oversights in the product’s design that render it unsafe for its intended use. Unlike manufacturing defects, design defects affect all product units and can result in widespread risks for consumers. 

Examples of design defects include:

  • Insufficient safety features in automobiles include a lack of stability control systems.
  • Inadequate shielding or insulation in electronic devices leads to electric shocks.
  • Fragile or brittle materials used in household products cause them to break easily and pose a risk of injury.
  • Insufficient warnings or instructions for safe product use.

Failure to Warn: A product can be considered defective if it fails to provide adequate warnings or instructions regarding potential risks associated with its use. Manufacturers are responsible for informing consumers of known hazards and providing instructions on safely using the product. 

Examples of failure to warn of defects include:

  • Prescription medications lack proper warnings about potential side effects or drug interactions.
  • Household cleaning products that do not warn about the dangers of mixing certain chemicals.
  • Tools or machinery without clear instructions on proper handling and safety precautions.
  • Children’s toys without age recommendations or warnings about small parts that pose a choking hazard.

Examples of Dangerous & Defective Products:

While any product has the potential to be dangerous or defective, some examples frequently cited in product liability claims include the following:

Pharmaceutical Products: 

  • Prescription drugs with undisclosed side effects or inadequate warning.
  • Medications contaminated during the manufacturing process.

Automotive Products:

  • Defective airbags that fail to deploy or deploy with excessive force.
  • Accidents are caused by faulty accelerators, steering systems, or brakes.

Consumer Electronics:

  • Overheating batteries in smartphones or laptops causes fires or explosions.
  • Electric devices with faulty wiring pose a risk of electrical shock.

Children’s Products:

  • Small parts in the toys pose a choking hazard.
  • Baby products, such as car seats or cribs, with design defects, compromise safety.

Industrial Machinery and Equipment:

  • Defective power tools lead to severe injuries or amputations.
  • Malfunctioning heavy machinery causes workplace accidents.

I’m very grateful for Mr. Sris work to get my alimony payment ended. I retired recently and I could not afford making the payments. Mr. Sris hard work and skills provided me with the results I needed. I’m very grateful to all his staff for their promptly responses to all my inquiries. I will recommend Mr. Sris law office to anybody that is struggling with divorce. I wish I would met him sooner.
Mr. Sris was amazing and did an exceptional job representing me in Fairfax Court. He was fully prepared for court, and very pleased with how he presented the case, and with the outcome. Mr Sris and his team were always available throughout the process. Highly recommend!

Excellent job!!! Mr. Sris and his team were amazing!!! They were very professional and did a wonderful job of preparing everything for my wife and I. Mr. Sris’s ability to navigate the system and his knowledge of law prevented the government from splitting up our family. Most people are stuck in immigration court for years, we received a ruling from the judge very quickly in our favor. I am extremely grateful for everything they did. I am so happy we chose them to help us fight for our family. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a no non-sense, diligent, strong and well versed legal team. Note: This is not our first case using this team. This is in fact our 3rd time using the SRIS Law Group and all three had stellar outcomes!

Mr. SRIS was instrumental in reducing my reckless driving charge. The prosecutor dropped it down to 74/55, but for Mr. SRIS that wasn’t enough, he kept fighting for me and got it reduced to defective equipment which resulted in 0 points on my license. An absolutely amazing lawyer who I would 100% use again, and definitely suggest to friends, family and colleagues. Him and his assistant also utilized excellent communication during the entire time leading up to the court date, keeping me well informed and giving me as many recommendations as possible.

I chose to go with Sris Law Group to represent me for my child visitation case. There were a lot of complications with the case and several hurdles that we had to deal with, but the attorneys experience and ability to handle my case was phenomenal. The firm employs a staff that is courteous and helpful. In addition, the communication was prompt. I really liked that they were up front about what to expect and did not provide false expectations. The trial went well and I am happy that they were able to represent me. I definitely will go with them again if I have another issue arise.

Two words! Simply Amazing!!!! I had one of my best experiences working with SRIS. I have worked with different lawyers for my employment and family related visas. But working with SRIS for a Family Visa has been a total new experience. They were very professional with their work. All I had to do was talk on the phone. They sent me the list of the documents needed and when i scanned and sent them, the paper work was all ready. I would totally recommend them for anyone especially for their family visas….
