Defective Product Attorney in Minneapolis

Trust Our Firm to Handle Your Complex Case

Defective products injure many individuals annually, which is why product liability is the area of the law that holds manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers responsible for the injuries that result from a product that is found to be unsafe. Broken bones, brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, and even death have occurred from defective products.

It is the responsibility of the manufacturers to ensure the products they sell are safe. It is also their duty to alert consumers when there is a recall of a defective product and to ensure that proper warnings are in place. Many times, retailers have to pull products from their shelves and wholesalers have to ensure the product is not distributed to retail outlets.

If you or a loved one was harmed by a defective product, contact Meshbesher & Associates at (612) 200-1526 today. Our Minneapolis defective product lawyer can help you understand your legal options.

Correct Product Use vs. Incorrect Use

There are many times in which an individual may be injured from using a product incorrectly. If a product is used outside of its intended use, then, yes, it is possible that an injury may result. Nevertheless, the directions for product use are present on the label for good reason; this protects the manufacturer and all entities involved in the distribution and sale of the product from being held liable for an injury.

It is when the product is used as directed and an injury still results that a product liability issue comes about. Furthermore, the absence of proper warnings can also lead to injury and a product liability case can be filed. Improper warning labels have been known to cause burns, loss of limbs, shock, contusions, and lacerations. In Minnesota, defective product lawyers have worked for clients to obtain high settlements from manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers for medical expenses, lost wages due to the injury, pain and suffering, and other appropriate damages, as well as funeral costs, loss of support, and much more if the product led to the wrongful death of a loved one.

How Products Are Defective

Products are defective in a number of ways. Maybe a bottle explodes, a child's toy may be a choking hazard, electrical wiring in an electronic device may be faulty and lead to a fire, or a medication may have the improper dosing within it.

Here are some ways that a product is deemed defective:

  • It is missing valid warnings.
  • The design may be one that does not protect the user from certain injuries. For example, the design of a heater could easily lead to burns.
  • Improper manufacturing can cause easy breakage of the product, resulting in injury.

When a product is defective, it must be proven by a technical expert who tests the product and ensures that it is dangerous when used as directed.
