It doesn’t matter how well something is designed if there are inadequacies in the manufacturing process. Defects in manufacturing occur when a product is improperly manufactured and departs from its intended design. For example, a bottle of prescription drugs may become contaminated at a processing facility or a metal hip replacement may prematurely break due to substandard manufacturing practices. When these types of manufacturing defects cause injuries to consumers, the manufacturer can be found liable.
If you’re injured as a result of a manufacturing defect, you can recover monetary compensation for hospital bills, continuing medical care, lost wages, and other damages. Product liability lawsuits also play an important role in ensuring safety measures for that product to consumers.
Manufacturing defects can be difficult to prove. Product knowledge, technical resources, and investigation are often needed to prove the manufacturing alone caused injury to you or a loved one.
