Connecticut Product Liability Lawyer

Defective Product Claims

Manufacturers must ensure the products they create and sell are safe for consumers to use. When a product has serious side effects, hazardous defects, or can cause harm to a user, the manufacturer has an obligation to warn potential users of these dangers.

If you or someone you love was injured by a defective product, you could be entitled to financial compensation. Even if the product was recalled, this does not absolve the manufacturer or distributor from liability. Reach out to Carter Mario Law Firm today to learn more about your legal rights and options. Our Connecticut product liability lawyers are ready to take your call 24/7 and can meet with you for a free consultation at any time.

Give us a call at (203) 571-3858 or contact us online to request a free case evaluation. There are no fees unless we recover compensation for you!

What Makes a Product Defective?

A product is considered defective when it poses an unreasonable risk of harm to users or when it fails to work properly, leading to injury.

Product defects fall into three categories:

  • Design Defects: A design defect occurs when a flaw in the actual design of the product makes it unreasonably unsafe for normal/typical use. While some products are inherently dangerous, a product only has a defective design when the risks outweigh the benefits, meaning the risk of injury is unreasonably high.
  • Manufacturing Defects: A product has a manufacturing defect when it is designed properly but manufactured incorrectly. Flaws introduced during the manufacturing stage might include things like missing parts, contamination, or incorrect assembly, among others. Only products with the flaw will be defective, as opposed to an entire line of products.
  • Marketing/Labeling Defects: A marketing defect (also referred to as a labeling defect) occurs when a product is marketed for off-label use or when a product lacks necessary warning/safety labels to protect consumers. Examples include a medication that is marketed by doctors for other uses not intended by the manufacturer or a child’s toy that is missing choking hazard warnings.

Our Connecticut product liability attorneys understand the importance of determining the type of defect affecting a product, as this typically allows us to then determine who is liable for the resulting damages. We conduct exhaustive investigations, often working alongside a team of experts, to identify whether a defect existed, whether that defect caused the accident/injury, and which entity is legally liable for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.
