Product Injuries: Defective Design

Each day, shoppers purchase consumer items in good faith, believing the item will perform as advertised. It is important for manufacturers to pay close attention to the specifications of items mass produced for sale to make sure they are free of hazards and defects. If a consumer item is designed with hazardous defects, persons using the product may suffer serious injuries as a result.

If an individual suffers injury due to a product that features dangerous design issues, the person may be able to pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering. The company responsible for producing the item may be held liable for injuries that occurred due to the use of the product. If you have suffered injury due to a defectively designed product, contact the Rhinelander product liability attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, S.C at 800-242-2874 today.
