Any time that you use a product, you are using it with the belief that the product has been sufficiently tested and proven safe for use. However, if you use a product that is actually defective and suffer because of its defect, our Columbus, Ohio hazardous product attorneys can help you.

What is a Defective Product?

Defective product is the term given to any product, food, or prescription that is contaminated or doesn’t perform the way it’s supposed to. If this product or item causes you pain, suffering, or illness, then you have grounds to file a lawsuit against those involved in the production of, sale of, and marketing of the product.

To prove that a product was actually defective and you have grounds to sue, the product must meet the following criteria:

  • A design defect that made the product dangerous
  • A manufacturing defect meaning that the manufacturer added or subtracted something from the original product that caused it to be defective
  • A marketing defect which means that false claims were made about the product during its marketing campaign
