A defective product can be anything from a piece of heavy machinery to a household item or even a simple child's toy. The defect which causes injury can show up either as an original design problem, the use of dangerous components, or of defective manufacturing. Often, a question involving a defective product will involve whether or not adequate warnings or instruction for its' use were given. To determine whether a manufacturer has placed a legally defective product into the stream of commerce, an engineer or other expert may need to examine the item. For that reason, it is crucial that you preserve the suspected product or fully document its condition with accurate photos.
