Defective Household Products Injury Lawyer
Although most people feel safe in their own homes, defective household products can cause serious injuries, and sometimes death. If you’ve been hurt or a loved one has died because of defective household products, you may be able to file a product liability claim.
Product liability refers to the liability of a manufacturer, distributor, or other party in the chain of distribution for damages or injuries caused by a product that, through design or manufacture, has become dangerous in its expected uses.
Some of the most common types of defective household products include:
- Defective Electrical Appliances (hotplates, microwaves, toasters, coffee makers, lamps, dishwashers, heaters)
- Defective Furniture (baby cribs, bookshelves, beds, dressers)
- Defective Personal Grooming Items (hairdryers, curling irons, electric shavers)
Manufacturers and suppliers are responsible for designing, manufacturing, and selling safe products. If their products become unsafe, responsible manufacturers should take steps to protect and warn consumers about their product to avoid injuries.
Distributors, manufacturers, and sellers may be held responsible for defects in design, poor manufacturing, products that do not have complete or correct instructions, or for failure to warn or a failure to live up to a warranty.

Liability for Defective Household Products
Many people don’t realize that common household items like blenders, microwave ovens, toasters, etc., can potentially cause serious bodily harm. Any defect in these items can cause injuries such as cuts, bruises, broken bones, chemical exposure, and burn injuries, among many others.
Manufacturers of household products must ensure that their products are safe and fit for consumer use. Should their products have potential risks, they are also required to include proper warning labels to let consumers know that misuse could cause physical harm. Failure to do so would make them liable for injuries suffered by product users, and the injury victims may file a claim for compensation.
