A defective product is any product that, due to a defect in its design or manufacture, or because of inaccurate or deceptive marketing, has harmed a user. Many manufacturer defects are dangerous, and cause substantial injury and death every year. The most common types of defective products that have led to mass tort litigation include

  • Motor vehicles, parts, and components, including airbags, braking and steering systems, seat belts, and tires
  • Medications and medical devices, including Zantac, Philips CPAP machines, the Bair Hugger, and others
  • Household appliances, such as faulty water heaters, clothes dryers, hair dryers, and more
  • Children’s toys that are found to have choking hazards or dangerous chemicals in their paint or other parts of their construction
