Orlando Defective Tools, Toys, Gadgets Attorneys
As a consumer, you may not give much thought to how safe the tools, toys, and other gadgets are that you purchase. Why would you, given that we depend on federal regulatory agencies to ensure the safety of the products we purchase? While those agencies work hard to enforce laws aimed at protecting consumers from defective products, the reality is that defective tools, toys, and gadgets still manage to make it into the marketplace. If you were injured by one of these defective products, the team at Bailey Fisher is dedicated to zealously pursuing your right to compensation for the physical injuries and emotional trauma you have suffered as a result.
Injuries Involving Tools and Toys
Whether you work in the construction industry or simply need to make minor repairs around the house from time to time, there is an excellent chance that you own tools. If you are the parent of minor children, it is all but a certainty that your house is overflowing with toys. Given the prevalence of tools and toys in American households you might think they are likely among the safest products sold to consumers. Unfortunately, that is not the case. On the contrary, tools, toys, and gadgets are frequently involved in injury accidents. Sometimes, the true cause of an “accident” is a defective tool or toy. Consider the following facts and figures:
- According to researchers at the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a child is treated in the emergency room for a toy-related injury every three minutes in the United States.
- Almost 5,000 construction workers were fatally injured in a workplace accident in 2018 according to the U.S Department of Labor.
- There were an estimated 226,100 toy-related injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments in 2018.
- Close to four million construction workers are injured in a workplace accident each year in the U.S.
Was the Tool, Toy, or Gadget Defective?
Injury accidents involving tools, toys, and gadgets can be caused by a variety of factors that do not indicate a defective product. It helps, therefore, to have some idea what makes a product defective in the eyes of the law. Product liability is the area of the law that addresses injuries caused by a defective product. Product liability law recognizes three ways in which a product can be defective, including:
- Design defects. These are defects inherent in the design of the product and will be present in all products using that design.
- Manufacturing defects. These defects occur during the manufacturing phase and will be limited to the products produced during the time/place that the defect was introduced.
- Failure to warn defects. These defects involve an inherently dangerous product that cannot be made safe, therefore requiring a warning. A missing or inadequate warning makes the product defective.
