You and your family need the resources to effectively deal with the aftermath of such an injury.

Our personal liability attorneys will take an aggressive approach when it comes to your case. In contrast to some lawyers who might settle for a lowball offer, we have no fear in taking on the big corporation or giant insurance company.

Defective Product FAQs

What Makes a Product Defective?


The three most common ways in which a product can be defective or faulty include the product’s overall design, the manufacturing process, and how the product was marketed.

Design: Many products have inherent design flaws that make them dangerous for consumer use. Design defects can exist even when a product’s manufacturing and marketing processes are sound. A children’s toy that poses a choking hazard is a common example of a defective design.

Manufacturing: A well-designed product is not enough to protect consumers from harm. Although many companies have quality control programs designed to identify flaws before a product is released to the public, flaws often slip through the cracks and the product is distributed to consumers. Common manufacturing defects include missing or broken parts, contaminants, and faulty wiring.

Marketing: Marketing defects occur when a product does not provide consumers with adequate warnings about potential hazards, side effects, or instructions pertaining to proper use and maintenance. A household electronic device catching fire due to a lack of information regarding proper care is a common marketing defect example.


Who Could Be Held Liable for My Injuries?


There are a number of different parties that could be held liable for injuries caused by a defective product. The product’s manufacturer, manufacturers who produce components used to create a product, assembly and installation teams, wholesalers, retailers, and other parties involved in the product’s distribution can potentially be held liable. An experienced product liability attorney will be able to investigate and determine which parties can be held responsible for your injuries.




Can I Represent Myself? Do I Really Need a Product Liability Attorney?


If you have been injured due to a defective product, hiring a product liability attorney is one of the best things you can do for yourself and anyone else who has been affected by the consequences of the injury.

In many cases, the injuries caused by defective products are severe and require intensive treatment and years of follow-up care. Although your insurance coverage may help with the cost of your medical bills following the injury, you will not receive compensation for ongoing pain and suffering, lost wages, mental anguish, and other life-altering consequences of the injury.

It is also in your interests to have a defective product attorney in your corner when the defendant mounts a case against you. Many product manufacturers have highly skilled legal teams to protect them from consumer lawsuits, and they will begin developing a defense against your claim the moment it is filed. A skilled product liability attorney will know how to demonstrate that the product had an unreasonable dangerous risk associated with its use, that you were using the product as intended, and that you had not tampered with or altered the product before you were injured.

At Metier Law Firm, we work to settle claims out of court but prepare every case for trial from the beginning. We are not afraid to challenge corporations and insurance companies as we work to secure the compensation our clients need to recover and move on.


I Can’t Afford a Product Liability Attorney. What Should I Do?


There are numerous costs associated with product liability cases that most injured victims cannot afford following an accident. Court fees, expert witness testimony, retainer fees, and other costs can quickly add up and become a financial burden that’s too much to bear.

At Metier Law Firm, we know that you and your loved ones are experiencing immense hardship and do not need any more immediate expenses to cover. While some product liability attorneys will charge high retainer fees and payments throughout the case, we take a different approach. We start with a free, no-risk consultation in which we help you understand your options. If you choose us to represent you, we will put you and your family first and focus on winning your case before we handle the financial aspects of filing a claim. If we do not win or settle your case, you will not pay us anything.




What Could I Recover in My Defective Product Case?


Generally speaking, your attorney will work to recover compensation for any economic and non-economic damages incurred as a result of the injury. While this list is not exhaustive, you may be able to recover compensation and/or reimbursement for:

  • Medical bills and out-of-pocket expenses, including past, present, and future bills
  • Ongoing rehabilitation services such as physical therapy and psychological care
  • Lost wages resulting from the injury
  • Lost economic opportunities, including being unable to return to work
  • At-home nursing and mobility assistance devices
  • Life-altering consequences
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial expenses if the injury resulted in death and a wrongful death case was filed

Each product liability case is different, and it is often difficult for a victim to identify how their life will be affected by the injury years into the future. As product liability attorneys with more than 30 years of experience, we understand how injuries affect victims and will work with medical professionals to determine the best possible course of care.


Can I Pursue a Defective Product Lawsuit If My Medical Bills Were Covered by My Insurer?


Yes, you may still pursue a product liability lawsuit if your medical bills were covered by your insurance provider.

We encourage you to meet with our team to discuss your case, even if your expenses were minimal. In more than 30 years of advocating for injured victims and their families, we have seen defective products cause long-term damage and non-economic harm that cannot be reimbursed or covered by standard insurance policies.




My Injury Was Mild. Is It Worthwhile to File a Defective Product Claim?


While it is ultimately up to you as to whether or not it is worthwhile to pursue a defective product claim, there are many reasons why it is worth it to discuss your options with a product liability attorney.

First and foremost, it is your right to expect that the products you purchase will be safe for use. Moreover, the product could cause a much more serious injury, or even death, to another consumer. Should you decide to file a claim, you could be helping others avoid serious, life-altering consequences of a preventable defect.

You should also consider that the effects of a mild injury could become more serious with time. Just as a car accident victim may find new issues coming up weeks or months after a crash, victims of defective products sometimes find themselves needing additional care well after an injury seems to have resolved itself. An experienced product liability attorney will be able to help you identify what, if any, care will be needed in the future and help you pursue the compensation required to access it.


The Product That Injured Me Was Recalled. Will This Hurt My Case?


No, a product recall will not necessarily hurt your chances of a favorable settlement or verdict. In fact, a recall at the federal level could potentially be used as evidence that the product was inherently dangerous not just to you, but to all potential consumers.

However, each case differs and will need to be evaluated by your attorney before we can determine the effect of a recall on your case.
