Manufacturing Defects

Any company that manufactures consumer products is required by law to ensure that their products are safe for their intended use. If consumers suffer preventable injuries as the result of using a defective product, manufacturers can be held liable for compensating the victims they harm. Although there are several underlying causes that can contribute to accidents and injuries resulting from the use of a consumer product, one of the most common is a manufacturing defect. Manufacturing defects are problems that arise during the actual construction of a product. Typically, there are two ways in which a manufacturing defect may occur:

  • Poor-quality materials
  • Carelessness, negligence or errors during manufacturing (shoddy workmanship)

Defectively manufactured products pose numerous potential dangers to the consumers who used them. When filing a personal injury claim on the basis of product liability law, it is essential that clear and convincing evidence be shown regarding how the defect originated and how that particular defect caused ham. At Balzarini & Watson, our focus on immediately and thoroughly conducting investigations and working with our extensive resources can allow our team to determine the underlying cause of your injury and create customized strategies that deliver you the best possible results.

Strict Liability for Defective Products

Regardless of whether a manufacturer acted with negligence or took painstaking care when constructing the product, strict liability will still ensure that injured victims have the right to hold responsible manufacturers liable for any manufacturing defects inherent to their products. Our team of proven and highly experienced Pittsburgh personal injury lawyers is prepared to work toward proving that a defect was present when the product was still in the manufacturing stage and that the defect which caused your injury did not arise in any other way.
