No one uses a product expecting it to break or fail. When a product’s defect becomes apparent, it can take the user by surprise, sometimes with disastrous consequences.
If the defect causes a serious personal injury, the manufacturer, wholesaler or seller may be liable. Think of a hairdryer that emits a dangerous shock or a child’s toy that contains small, sharp pieces. Consumers should be able to use products they pay good money for as intended, without worrying about being hurt.
1. When the product is designed
2. When the product is manufactured
3. When the product's instructions or warnings are inadequate or missing.
The Albuquerque NM product liability attorney at Will Ferguson & Associates understands the ins and outs of product liability litigation. If you believe you have a product liability claim, call us at (505) 633-0750 or email us for a free consultation. Here are some examples of products that have been involved in product liability cases that you may claim: The drivers of cars, trucks and motorcycles are at the mercy of the product manufacturers, wholesalers and sellers. If the parts that go into a vehicle are unsafe, causing a car’s brakes to fail or an SUV’s tire to blow out without warning, auto accidents and truck accidents can occur, resulting in serious personal injury. Every year in New Mexico, dangerous children’s products are marketed to unsuspecting parents. Under federal and New Mexico law, manufacturers and distributors of unsafe toys, baby furniture and other children’s equipment are responsible for the injuries they cause.
Lawyers at Will Ferguson & Associates represent children and parents in cases where poorly designed, defective or otherwise dangerous infant and children’s products cause personal injury:
The distributor of a popular action figure will cut costs by importing lead-painted toys from China. To save money, the manufacturer of a stroller or baby gate will ignore information that could save a baby’s life or prevent the amputation of a child’s finger.
Designers and manufacturers of toys and furniture intended for children need to keep a sharp eye on safety. For more information, visit the Consumer Products Safety Commission for guidelines on children’s items and information on recalls. In the recent past, cribs, dolls, bedroom furniture, clothing and numerous other items have been recalled.Sometimes medication causes harm because the manufacturer concealed adverse testing results from federal regulators. In other cases, the manufacturing process allowed contaminants into the product. The harm that results can be devastating. The Food and Drug Administration regulates pharmaceutical and medical devices. If the manufacturer did not comply with FDA regulations, that often makes it easier to recover compensation. Powered hand tools can also be defective and cause grave injuries. When the user has not been sufficiently warned of the dangers or the tool has a design or manufacturing flaw or defect, the tool may be unreasonably dangerous and leave the manufacturer open to liability. If a tool does not have a necessary thumb guard, for instance, or the instructions fail to warn the user to wear protective gloves, the manufacturer may be liable. Building sites, construction plants, meatpacking plants, oilfields and oil refineries are inherently hazardous environments. Under New Mexico law, any injured employee is entitled to workers’ compensation. However, those benefits often do not cover all of the employee’s losses. That’s where we can help. Contact us, Will Ferguson & Associates, and our personal injury attorney can use product liability case law to assist construction workers in recovering additional compensation through third-party actions. Such a claim could be against the maker of a poorly designed piece of equipment that contributed to an accident. Examples include:
