Milwaukee Defective Product Personal Injury Lawyers
Defective Product Causes Injuries
Recently our Milwaukee defective product lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. secured a settlement for a client who was injured while using exercise equipment. Our client was using an inversion therapy table, and while in an inverted position a weld failed causing the equipment to collapse. In the fall from the table, our client suffered head and back injuries.
We Conduct Detailed Investigations
Our investigation revealed that the company had problems with similar equipment, which had been subject to a recall by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. We issued a claim against the company which distributed the equipment and its insurer, alleging that it had a duty to ensure that the equipment was provided to the public in a safe condition and free from defects.
- Generally, there are three kinds of product defects which can result in injury:
- Design defects – These defects arise from the design phase of the product and carry through to the manufacture.
- Manufacturing defects – These defects occur as the product is manufactured, such as when a not or bolt is not properly fastened, or when a part is erroneously left off of a product.
- Marketing Defects – These defects occur when information about the product is erroneous or missing. Examples of marketing defects include when a manufacturer or vend gives improper installation or assembly instructions, or when a medication’s warning label does not contain all the valuable information needed to safely use the product.
This case was settled, prior to a lawsuit being filed. At the conclusion of the claim, the company picked up the equipment from the client’s home and gave a full refund!
