Defective Products

As a consumer, expecting your products to function as advertised and be safe to use is reasonable. Unfortunately, there are instances where companies sell defective products to consumers. You must understand all your legal options when you buy a defective product. The compensation offered by the company, if any, may not make you whole. That’s where Laukaitis Law comes in. We are a consumer law firm with experience handling defective product cases.

What are Defective Product Class Action Lawsuits?

Defective product class action lawsuits are legal proceedings allowing consumers who purchased the same defective product to come together and file a lawsuit. These types of lawsuits make companies accountable for any financial damages and injuries caused by buying and using a defective product.

Common Types of Defective Products

Defective products can pose severe risks to consumers and come in many forms. Some common types of defective products include:

  • Appliances: Faulty refrigerators, stoves, and other defective products can be dangerous and cause fires, electric shock, or other injuries.
  • Children’s Products: Toys, cribs, and other products for children have strict safety regulations due to the vulnerability of young users. Defects in these products can lead to severe injuries or even death.
  • Medical Devices: Defective medical devices can severely damage patients, including injury or death.
  • Defective Automobiles: Defects in cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles can cause accidents and injuries.
  • PFAS in Consumer Goods: PFAS (per and polyfluoroalkyl substances) has become a growing concern in recent years due to their potential health risks. PFAS are synthetic chemicals in everyday products such as cookware, carpets, clothes, and food packaging. These chemicals can lead to various health problems, from liver damage and cancer to decreased fertility and thyroid issues. As a result, PFAS may render the products defective.
  • Pharmaceuticals: Defective drugs or medication errors can have severe consequences for patients.

These are some types of defective products that can cause harm to consumers. Many more defective products can be the subject of consumer class action lawsuits. If you purchased a defective product, contact us today. We have experience litigating defect product class action cases.
