A defective product described in simplest form is a product that is not reasonably safe and does not perform in the manner in which it was intended to perform. Serious injuries have resulted from a wide range of defective products, including:
- Automobile defects & recalls
- Defective Children’s toys
- Gas grills with glass covers
- Medical devices, including medical implants
- Prescription drugs
- Tire defects
Any defect can result from how the product was made, how a product was designed, or a failure to provide adequate warnings about how to properly use the product. In some instances, the party which distributed or sold the product will be held responsible for the injury caused by a defective or faulty product.
You should know that, if possible, it is helpful if you save the defective product and any packaging, instructions, and warnings which accompanied the product, for future investigation of the defect.
