Defective Products

Manufacturers have a responsibility to the public to produce safe products which carry adequate safety warnings and operating instructions.  Nevertheless, every year in Connecticut hundreds of people are seriously injured due to defective products ranging from simple household items to complicated medical devices and manufacturing equipment.  A wide range of products may cause injury if they have not been designed, assembled or marketed properly including:


  • Prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and vaccines;
  • Medical devices, such as artificial joints and surgical devices;
  • Motor vehicle parts, including brakes, airbags and safety belts;
  • Children’s toys, cribs and car seats;
  • Home appliances and equipment;
  • Fire alarms and smoke detectors; and
  • Food and beverages

Injuries may result when products are unsafely or improperly designed.  Products may have been assembled incorrectly.  In addition, products may come with insufficient instructions or safety warnings, or they may have been fraudulently marketed.  Products liability claims are necessarily complex.  The party responsible for your injury could be found at any stage of the manufacturing or sales process.  In addition, manufacturers often have limitless resources at their disposal to defend against your claim.
