Defective Products And Products Liability
Injuries from defective products are usually very serious and occur from a variety of products including automobiles, motorcycles, medicines and drugs, appliances, bicycles, toys, ATVs, snowmobiles, and more.
Manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and sellers have an obligation to design a product that is safe to use, and to provide proper and adequate warnings which prevent injuries to the user.
