FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Makes a Product Defective?

    For a product to be considered "defective," it must contain a flaw that renders it unreasonably unsafe for use. However, this does not include any products that are already inherently dangerous. For example, a nail gun is a hazardous tool that can cause severe bodily injury if misused but is typically safe when used as intended. In order to classify a product as defective, it must fall under one of three categories:

    Design: This includes products with a flawed design that makes them unreasonably unsafe for typical use are categorized as having a design defect. Examples include:

    • Power tools without protective safety shields.
    • Car tires that shred or blow out at high speeds.
    • Medications with unwarranted dangerous side effects.

    Manufacturing: In the case that the product is properly designed, it is possible that a flaw was introduced during the production phase, known as a manufacturing defect. Examples of manufacturing defects include contaminated food and beverage items, incorrectly installed car treads or airbags, or motorcycles with improperly installed brakes.

    Labeling: This is also known as defective marketing. It is when a product lacks the necessary safety labels, instructions, or warning labels to make it safe for typical use, or if the product has not been properly tested or has been marketed for "off-label" uses. 

  • What Defective Products Commonly Cause Explosions & Fires?

    Products with flawed designs or manufacturing defects pose many risks to consumers. However, some defective products run a higher risk of severely injuring or killing unsuspecting users. For example, commercial electronics, such as computer systems, wiring, and other electrical devices, run high risks of explosion due to their electronic builds. 

    Other products that run the risk of explosions when designed or manufactured with flaws include but are not limited to:

    • Electrical wiring & outlets;
    • Gas lines & fuel hoses;
    • Vape pens & e-cigarettes;
    • Industrial tools, heavy machinery, and equipment;
    • Hazardous chemicals & other toxic substances;
    • Motor vehicle components, such as fuel lines and fluid reservoirs;
    • Lithium-ion batteries, cell phones, chargers, and personal electronic devices.

    Products like gas-operated appliances, such as stoves, ranges, water heaters, and washing machines, also risk explosion hazards in homes and businesses. 

  • What Compensation Can I Receive for My Damages?

    Explosions from defective products can cause severe physical, financial, and psychological pain for victims and their loved ones. Along with the extensive medical bills, dealing with the trauma of a severe injury and permanent injuries can significantly impact a person's life. The last thing any victim should be worried about is how they'll be able to afford to cover the costs of their damages. When you file a lawsuit against a negligent party, your attorney may be able to help you recover the following:

    • Medical expenses;
    • Physical therapy;
    • Pain and suffering;
    • Property damage;
    • Loss of wages;
    • Mortgage and rent;
    • Loss of consortium;

  • Who Is Liable for My Injuries?

    When it comes to liability for the injuries a defective product has caused, your case will often fall under a product liability claim. This area of law covers the damages caused by defective consumer products. Product defects typically fall into three categories: strict liability, negligence, or breach of warranty. In the laws surrounding product liability, any of these three categories can leave a manufacturer of the said product liable if someone is injured or damage is caused to the property.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
