If you were injured by an unsafe product that was designed, manufactured, sold, or furnished by a person or company, you may have a product liability claim. At Jakeway Injury Law, our product liability attorneys in Grand Blanc have years of experience and an excellent track record of representing injured clients in Flint and surrounding areas. We aggressively defend your rights and work to secure fair compensation for your injuries.

Defective Products Cause Serious Injuries

Toys, medical devices, and other products may cause injury due to improper design, errors in manufacturing, and other defects. Many product liability cases result from serious injuries. For example, a medical device may cause serious internal injury, or a poorly designed toy can lead to a choking hazard, causing injury or even death.

Types of Product Defects

In order to prevail in a product liability claim, the defect must meet the requirements of Michigan law. You must be able to show that the product was not reasonably safe when it left the manufacturer, such as a defect in design or the manufacturing process. In addition, we must be able to show that an alternative method of production could have prevented the injury. There are a few different types of product defects.

Some common types of product defects include:

  • Design defects – The flaw is in the design and there is no way to make it safe
  • Manufacturing defects – Product failure was caused by an error in the manufacturing process
  • Breach of warranty – Breach of an express (written) or implied warranty
  • Inadequate warnings – The manufacturer failed to warn of potential dangers

In some cases, there may be more than one defect in a single product. For example, a defect in the design and a failure to warn of potential risks could result in multiple defects in a product liability claim. Our Grand Blanc product liability lawyers can evaluate your claim to determine the type of defect that caused your injury.
