Businesses that create products have a duty to not put a dangerous or defective product into the "stream of commerce."
Product defects may either be defined as a manufacturing defect, in which the product was different than other products in a way that made it dangerous beyond the expectation of a normal customer, or a design defect, in which the design of the product was flawed and there was an economically feasible, safer alternative for the company.
If you were injured by a defective product in District of Columbia then contact a personal injury attorney in your area to discuss whether you might be able to recover money damages for your injury.
The AAJ is committed to promoting a fair and effective civil justice system while supporting the work of attorneys representing plaintiffs.
