Handling Defective Product & Medical Device Claims Across Kentucky

Product liability refers to manufacturer, retailer, distributor, or seller liability for putting a defective product in consumers’ hands. The companies have an obligation to design, produce, and distribute products that are free from defects. These products should also be properly marketed and should include instructions and warning labels as needed. When manufacturers or other parties in the manufacturing or distribution chain fail to uphold their obligation, they may be held strictly liable for any resulting injuries.

If you or someone you love was injured by a defective product or medical device, a Louisville product liability lawyer at our firm may be able to help you. We represent clients across Kentucky in product liability litigation related to all types of consumer products: home appliances, children’s toys, sports equipment, tools, safety equipment, electronics, automobile parts, medical devices, and more.

What Is a Defective Product?

A defective product may be defined as a consumer product that falls into one of the three following categories:

  • A product with a design defect. This may include any type of product that is poorly designed and therefore presents inherent risks to consumers. Metal-on-metal hip implants are an example. Though they were properly manufactured, the fact that they were made of metal presented a unique problem when metal particles came off the implant and entered surrounding tissue or the patient’s bloodstream, causing serious side effects and the need for revision surgery.
  • A product that has a manufacturing defect. Even if a product’s design is sound, if a mistake is made during manufacturing, it may affect the safety of the product. An example may be a cell phone case-charger combo that is put together incorrectly at the assembly plant, with an exposed wire that presents a fire hazard while the case is plugged in.
  • A product that has a marketing defect. A product that is improperly marketed, such as a toy advertised for children of all ages that presents a choking hazard and should only be used by children aged 3 years and older, is an example of this type of defect. Additional examples are products that lack proper instructions for use or warning labels to inform consumers of potential risks.
