Who is Responsible for a Defective Safety Equipment Injury

  1. the product is defective or dangerous

  3. losses were suffered due to the injury

Design Flaw

A product with a design flaw may be inherently dangerous from day one despite proper manufacturing and appropriate consumer use.

Manufacturing Error

These defects can occur during the product’s assembly or production.
