Defective Product Lawyer in Palm Beach County – Hicks & Motto

Defective products can pose significant dangers to consumers, leading to injuries or even death. As consumers, we trust that manufacturers adhere to stringent safety standards and rigorous testing before releasing products to the market. However, not all products meet these safety expectations. Each year, some defective products are found to be unsafe, causing harm to countless people before they are recalled by the appropriate authorities.

A defective product can be anything that is not safe for its intended use. Some common examples include defective vehicle designs, unsafe automobile parts, medications, contaminated food products, children’s toys and child safety seats, household equipment like hot water heaters, tools like ladders, and products with metallurgic defects. These items, when faulty, can lead to severe injuries and even fatalities.
