Ryan, Drewniak, & Upshaw, P.A. remains poised to represent those injured by defective and unsafe goods. Many manufacturers fail to take the necessary measures to ensure that their products are safe and meet certain performance, design, and construction standards.

Ryan, Drewniak, & Upshaw, P.A. diligently works to ensure that a consumer injured by a poorly designed product is fairly compensated for his or her injuries. Typically, a product liability case arises from a defective design or faulty manufacturing. A design or engineering defect can result with the manufacturing of a product that is inherently unsafe. Occasionally, there is no design or engineering defect that causes a product to be dangerous. Rather, the product is properly designed or manufactured, but it is faulty due to incorrect assembly. A defective product case, therefore, can implicate the supplier, manufacturer, retailer, and/or other provider of a product.

Also, a manufacturer has an obligation to warn of the dangerous propensities of a product. So, if a manufacturer’s failure to warn you of the dangerous propensities of product caused you to sustain injuries, you may have a product liability claim. In certain circumstances, the manufacturer may even be liable to you for exemplary or punitive damages.

If you believe you have been injured by a defective product, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
