Cedar Rapids Manufacturing Defect Lawyer
When we purchase a product, we put a great deal of trust in those responsible for designing, manufacturing, producing, and shipping the product. If one of these steps goes wrong, the result may be something minor such as a simple defect. However, numerous products, if manufactured defectively, can have catastrophic consequences when used. From products as clearly dangerous as power tools, to the benign such as ladders or stools, to even the seemingly harmless, such as a child’s toy, a manufacturing defect can be costly, even deadly.
If you or a loved one has been injured while using a defective product, contact a Cedar Rapids manufacturing defect lawyer from Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424, and we will help step you through the legal process, identifying the parties responsible for your injuries and holding them accountable for their actions.
Manufacturing Defects vs. Design Defects
Design defects involve, as the name implies, an error in the designing process of a product. A product that is defectively designed may be a ladder without any rungs, or a table with insufficient legs. However, a manufacturing defect involves a product that is designed well, but somewhere during the production process, a defect has been introduced, causing it to not function appropriately.
Manufacturing defects tend to be more common, and we often hear about them in the news, from contaminated food products to exploding tires. In these cases, manufacturers have a strict liability for the products they create and you may be owed compensation from them for any injuries that you suffer as a result of using their products.
If you or a loved one has been hurt because of a defective product, contact the Cedar Rapids manufacturing defect attorneys with Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424, and we will evaluate your case and fight to earn you the maximum compensation you may be owed.
