A product qualifies as defective when it is used properly and according to instructions but causes an unreasonable risk of harm. Proper use must be established for your claim to qualify as a defective product case. If a product fails to provide adequate instructions or warnings, you may have a “failure to warn defect.”
For instance, suppose you are prescribed a new medication that does not warn about harmful interactions if taken with another medication. You may have a defective product claim for failure to warn.
Products are deemed defective when they pose an unreasonable risk of injury. What a court considers to be an unreasonable risk of harm is usually found by comparing similar products and circumstances in other cases.
For instance, suppose a new drug hits the market and lists restless leg syndrome as one of the side effects. If you are prescribed the medication and experience restless leg syndrome, you may not have a qualifying defective product claim because you were aware of the risk.
However, if the same medication causes a heart attack, the drug may have a design or manufacturing defect:

Thousands of Americans are harmed by defective products each year. When injuries occur due to recalled or defective products, plaintiffs can file product liability injury claims with the assistance of a qualified product liability attorney.
According to the following federal agencies, 4,000 harmful products were recalled in the last reporting year:
As consumers, we have a right to know if any of the products we have purchased have proven harmful to others. Auto dealerships send notices to customers warning of recalled car parts. However, most purchases are not as easily traced.
Most consumers discover their baby’s swing or recently bought produce is harmful through news outlets. Periodically checking recall alert agencies may prevent you or members of your family from dangerous products or drugs.
When a product is determined to be defective, the company is liable for any foreseeable injuries that are in part caused by the defective condition of the product. Rightful compensation can include medical costs, long-term disability in the case of permanent injury, and other damages that may include pain and suffering and lost wages.
Holding companies responsible for dangerous products released to the market is only fair for consumers and victims. When a product liability case is filed and a settlement or verdict is reached, large punitive damages aim to make America a safer place, discourage corporations from cutting corners, and failing to properly test their own products before being released to the public.
