Tampa Design Defect Lawyers
A defective product can be very dangerous to consumers, even when used with caution. When a poorly made product causes injuries to unsuspecting people, the company that manufactured it can be held liable for any related costs. However, before effective legal action can be taken, it is important to determine what went wrong and who is responsible.
For example, the team that designed a product may be to blame rather than the plant where it was put together. When an item is inherently dangerous even when built correctly, the flaw is legally known as a design defect. Unfortunately, determining the difference between a design defect and a manufacturing defect can be difficult without the assistance of a knowledgeable product liability attorney.
If you have been the unfortunate victim of a poorly designed product, you deserve compensation for any injuries you have been forced to unnecessarily endure. Call the Tampa design defect lawyers of the Ruth Law Team at (813) 254-1416 for the assistance and experience you need.
Recognizing Design Defects
To determine whether or not a product that has injured you had a design defect, it may be useful to look at other items in the same line. If they are all flawed in the same way, the problem probably lies with the basic design of the product. Examples of design defects include:
- A vehicle that is top-heavy or has a badly made engine, making it more susceptible to accidents
- An electrical tool that lacks necessary safeguards
- A building or other large structure with an unstable design
Design defects can be avoided if product designers pay careful attention to the details of their work. If you have been injured because a designer or company failed to ensure your safety by producing high-quality work, then you deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have experienced through no fault of your own. Our Tampa design defect lawyers can help you bring a case against the company or designer responsible for putting you in harm’s way.
Victims of faulty products can be eligible for compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost income. To discuss your case with an experienced Tampa design defect lawyer, contact the Ruth Law Team at (813) 254-1416.
