My Child Was Injured Playing With A Plastic Toy That Cracked And Had A Jagged Edge. The Toy Cut My Son’s Finger Very Severely. Can I Take Any Action Against The Company That Manufactured And Distributes The Toy?
Yes. There are multiple types of product liability claims that can be made when a manufactured good causes harm to a consumer. In most cases, a product liability claim of negligence or strict liability will be in the form of a manufacturing defect, a design defect or a marketing defect (i.e., a failure to warn of the danger). The difference between a manufacturing defect and a design defect is that with a manufacturing defect, the product would be safe if manufactured properly. A design defect will be dangerous regardless of the materials used. You might want to contact an attorney who has experience in handling product liability cases. We are such attorneys.
