Product defects can be classified one of three ways:

  • Design defect – The product is inherently flawed because of how it is designed. These defects are independent of the manufacturing process. This type of defect frequently leads regulators – or even the manufacturer itself – to issue a safety recall.
  • Manufacturing defect – The product has a manufacturing defect if it was designed properly, but became defective in the manufacturing process. This type of flaw is usually limited to small batches of the manufactured product.
  • Failure-to-provide warning – The defect in a product causes an injury because of a manufacturer’s failure to warn of a specific danger associated with the normal, advertised use of the product.

If you have been hurt by a defective consumer product, reach out to a Wyoming personal injury lawyer by calling Burg Simpson’s Cody office at 307-527-7891.

Someone who has suffered an injury because of a defective product could have a valid claim against the product designer, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer. You could be entitled to compensation for:

  • Economic losses, which include current and potential medical and rehab costs, lost wages, loss of future earnings, and other related out-of-pocket costs.
  • Non-economic losses, which include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental and emotional distress.
  • Permanent impairment and/or disfigurement.
  • Loss of consortium.

Additionally, the surviving family of someone who has lost their life because of a defective product might be able to file a wrongful death claim. If this has happened to someone in your family, speak to a personal injury attorney in our Cody, Wyoming office by calling us at 307-527-7891.
