Injury Attorney Michael Carr joined Good Day Tulsa to talk about how children can become trapped in a hope chest. Some hope chests, he says, have a locking mechanism that traps the child when the lid closes.
Factors in Product Liability
Understanding a little about the three basic types of product defects can help you determine whether you may have a valid product liability claim:
- Design defects: Flaws in a product’s design make it unreasonably dangerous
- Manufacturing defects: Faults in the manufacturing process contaminate the product or otherwise make it unreasonably dangerous
- Warning defects: The manufacturer or seller of the product fails to provide adequate warnings about the product’s risks or instructions for the product’s proper use
It’s important to note a successful product liability case must establish the product was defective and the product defect caused the resulting injury or illness.
