Defective Manufacturing

In many products liability cases in Miami and across South Florida, the manufacturing process of the defective product becomes of great interest to investigators, defense lawyers, and personal injury attorneys. This is because in many cases it is the manufacturing process that is at fault for a defective product that has caused injury to a consumer. The manufacturing process is usually quite complex. All but the simplest of consumer products are assembled at complicated factories where thousands or even tens of thousands of workers may be employed. A complicated product such as a car may require thousands of individual parts to be assembled, and at any point something could go awry and result in effective product.

If you have been injured by a defective product and you think you may have a product liability case, contact a personal injury attorney in Miami or in your community to find out about your rights. Often these cases require a thorough investigation and a careful assembling of documented evidence. Manufacturers are often powerful companies with teams of attorneys on their side. To seek compensation for medical costs, lost income, and other expenses resulting from injuries, you will need a powerful attorney in your corner.

What manufacturing techniques are causing defective products?

Manufacturers of products sometimes make poor decisions when it comes to costs and safety. For example, many makers of products now outsource manufacturing overseas. In many cases, overseas manufacturing is less expensive and does not require the company to pay as much attention to labor laws and environmental laws. Unfortunately, outsourcing manufacturing can also be dangerous as it removes the company from the manufacturing process and gives the company less control over manufacturing. In many cases, defective products that have been recalled have been made manufactured overseas, where safety standards, labor rights, and environmental protection laws are very different.

Cost-cutting techniques are another issue. Many companies making products – everything from cars to beauty products to personal care items – are trying to cut cost in order to make their products more profitable. Since many companies are competing with products that are made overseas at a fraction of the price, some companies try to reduce costs at the manufacturing level. This may mean fewer safety checks in factories, hiring temporary or even illegal workers, and taking other cost cutting measures that can unfortunately negatively affect the final safety of products. When companies make these sorts of decisions, they can be held liable if the result is an unsafe product that causes injuries.
