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.

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.
