When manufacturers are designing and building products, they are supposed to learn how products perform under a wide variety of conditions. Although design defects should be identified and fixed during product testing, that does not always happen. Some manufacturers allow products to become available to consumers, even when there are known design defects.
At The Brewer Law Firm, we have more than 40 years of experience handling personal injury claims for individuals in Phoenix, throughout Arizona and across the globe. We represent individuals who were injured because of defective products, including design defects such as:
When we handle design defect cases, we thoroughly research the product. We review information from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), police and government reports, and reports from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Often, a history of consumer complaints is common.
We also conduct patent searches when we’re investigating defective products. By finding patents from manufacturers, we’re often able to prove that manufacturers knew about the design defects and failed to provide solutions.
Our hands-on and research-focused approach helps ensure our clients receive the maximum compensation they deserve from the negligent parties who harmed them.
