Oklahoma Design Defects Lawyers

If you took the time to consider the variety of manufactured products that you use or encounter on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis it would likely be overwhelming. American consumers have the benefit of significant regulatory measures that exist for their protection and can generally make a purchase without fearing that a product will cause them to suffer harm as a consequence. Unfortunately, despite these measures it may be possible for a dangerously defective product to reach the market where an unsuspecting consumer may buy it and be subjected to needless risk of injury.

In most cases, the flaw with a product is inherent in the design and therefore should have been identified by a manufacturer before innocent consumers were harmed. If you have been the victim of a defective product, contact the Oklahoma design defect lawyers of the Abel Law Firm by calling 405-239-7046.

Negligent Design

Every product has some risk if it is used improperly, but if a product has unnecessary risk even if the product is used in a proper manner, it could be because of a design defect. Design defects can lead to severe accidental injury. Design defects are not limited to any one type of product, but the following are representative of products that have been identified with design defects in the past:

  • Automobile components
  • Medicines
  • Roadway defects
  • Tire defects
  • Child’s toy defects

It often requires a careful examination of a particular product’s history if one is to identify a design flaw as the primary cause of the failure that resulted in your harm. A skilled and experienced product liability lawyer can help you to explore the facts of your case so that you can have an opportunity to seek the financial compensation that you might be due.
