Connecticut residents like you rely on the products you use to be safe. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Miller, Rosnick, D’Amico, August & Butler, P.C., take a look at the defective and harmful products that can cause liability issues among the consumer base and how they get to the shelves in the first place.

Defective products happen for a number of reasons, but a good portion of them fall under the umbrella of negligence. This can be willful at times, or it may be unintentional. Negligence in any form is a lack of care or attention payed to situations in which a sharp eye is crucial. Any area of an item’s production can suffer from negligent actions. Quality assurance is one of the areas mentioned most frequently, simply because it’s a last line of defense.

When employers are trying to cut corners or save money, defects can happen. If employees are being underpaid or are just plain careless, this can also result in a defect. Defective items include everything from food contaminated with bacteria, to car parts that may contribute to car accidents. Anything that compromises the safety of an item and is the result of human error could potentially result in you suffering from an injury.

If you have been hurt by any sort of defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. Consider taking a look at our web page on product liability to learn more. A link is provided here. If you’re looking for further guidance, you can even contact one of our attorneys for more information.
