How Does a Product Become Defective?
To prove that your injuries or illness was caused by a dangerously defective product, we need to dig into the “how” and “why” evidence. In particular, we want to ask what happened to make the product you were using dangerous and how could that have been prevented if the product manufacturer had been more careful? In doing so, we can establish that the product manufacturer was negligent in the duty they owe to all consumers to only sell safe final products, especially when those products are used as intended or instructed.
There are essentially three main ways that products can be considered defective:
- Design: When a product is dangerous the moment it is conceived, it is defective by design. The exploding Takata airbags that triggered the largest auto recall in history were defective by design because they were created with an unstable chemical reagent in the inflation device, a reaction that never should have been used in the first place.
- Manufacturing: When an error occurs between the point of product design and sale or shipping, the product can become defective by manufacturing. For example, if a batch of ladders were sold with a missing lock mechanism, then they would all be dangerous to use due to a mistake while they were being manufactured.
- Marketing: When the marketing or instructional material provided with a product is dangerously misleading, a product can become defective by marketing. For example, if a power tool was sold with no instruction manual, then it would be unreasonably difficult for someone to use it without putting themselves at risk of injury.
While proving when a product became defective might seem like a tall order for the average attorney, you should remember that Fieger Law in Michigan is comprised of above-average legal professionals. Together with our network of experts – like medical doctors, mechanical engineers, and more – we can build a strong argument and confidently aim to prove liability beyond a doubt.
Willing to Fight in Court or For a Settlement
Our Michigan product liability attorneys from Fieger Law are always ready for litigation in front of a judge and jury. However, product manufacturers commonly try to settle injury claims filed against them because that allows them to keep all the details of the case out of public records, effectively shielding their brand from bad press. We know how to use their nervousness to your advantage by pressing them for a maximized settlement amount during negotiations or mediation. If the settlement they offer is not enough based on how much you have suffered and the total amount of your medical bills and lost wages, then we will let you know and advise we move to litigate.
