Failure to Guard: Product Liability

When a product is created, the designer is responsible not only for anticipating any potential misuse of the item, but also for guarding against those misuses. Designers should attempt to eliminate the hazard from the product and if it cannot be guarded against, then there is a responsibility to adequately warn consumers about the hazard.

Types of Cases

Our attorneys see failure to guard cases with a variety of products, but they show up often with cases involving:

  • Swimming pools
  • Chainsaws
  • Printing presses
  • Other heavy equipment

Our Process

In these product liability cases, our attorneys have a few levels of investigation that are important. We bring in experts to analyze the situation. Often we require an engineer or someone with a background in the industry to examine the product based on industry standards and whether reasonable alternatives exist. The expert analyzes whether it was feasible to guard against the hazard.
