Oklahoma Defective Products & Product Liability Lawyers

Defective Products Personal Injury Attorneys serving Oklahoma City, Lawton and cities throughout Oklahoma

July, 2017: This year, thousands of Oklahomans will be seriously injured or killed by defective and dangerous products of all kinds.

Defective products can be anything manufactured and sold to the public. From machines and equipment to drugs and medical devices. If a product is made or foreseeably used so as to endanger and seriously injury the public it is defective.

Fatal Oklahoma Defective Product Accidents on the Rise: In 2017 experts estimate there will be thousands of wrongful deaths and serious injuries from the use of dangerous and defective products in the US. Far too many of these will occur in Oklahoma homes, businesses, places of work, and on our Oklahoma streets and highways.

Oklahoma children could be at even greater risk of death and injury from a dangerous or defective product. For instance, did you know that the driver's seat in many passenger cars and trucks is so poorly designed and constructed that it can collapse backwards in a rear-end collision causing serious injury or death to a child who is properly restrained in the rear seat.

See our List of Recent Defective Products Injury Cases below.

Oklahoma Product Liabiity Attorneys: Product Liability is the area of law pertaining to the liability of manufactures, distributors, wholesalers, vendors, and retailers for damages caused by the dangerous or defective products they sell. The path the product takes from the manufacture to the ultimate consumer is called the chain of distribution.

There is a strict Oklahoma Product Liability Statute of Limitations relating to any Defective Product Injury, that limits the amount of time you have to file a legal claim.

Keyless Car Ignitions Cause Carbon Monoxide Deaths: Unfortunately when car designers decided to make cars keyless, they made the design inherently dangerous, in that Oklahomans can mistakenly leave their cars running in the garage overnight, potentially killing everyone in the house. We will have an in-depth page on this new Defective Product Design in the very near future, in the meantime, if anyone in your family has suffered an injury caused by a Keyless Car Ignition, please contact Self & Associates today.

Oklahoma Defective Product Injury Attorneys

Under Oklahoma product liability laws every person, business or entity involved in the chain of distribution can be found liable if the product is defective or unreasonably dangerous and injures or kills someone.

A product can be defective for 3 different reasons:

  • Defectively Manufactured - The product was made incorrectly to perform its intended function or with materials or component parts that fail to work properly or break so as to injure or kill people while the product is being used in a foreseeable manner.
  • Design Defect - The product was incorrectly or mistakenly designed so as to fail or be unreasonably dangerous and cause injury when used foreseeably. Design defects are inherent in that they exist before the product is manufactured.
  • Failure to Warn - This is a marketing defect. This could include inadequate assembly or safety instructions. Warning labels warning the intended user of dangers known by, or foreseeable to the manufacture should be affixed to the product or its packaging prominently.

Defective Products Injury Law Library Entry for Wednesday July 26, 2017

Defective Products

We expect the products we purchase to not only work correctly, but to not cause injury. Unfortunately, this is not the case. As we have seen with the recalls of vehicles and the numerous incidents of food-borne illness this year, nearly any product on the market can cause injury or even death. Defective productscause thousands of needless injuries every year across the country, and Oklahoma is no exception.

Reasons Products May Be Defective

There are three different reasons that lead to a product being defective. These reasons are that the product was defectively manufactured, there was a design defect with the product, or the manufacturer failed to properly warn consumers of any dangers.

A defectively manufactured product means the product was made incorrectly and does not perform its intended function. The product could also have components that do not function correctly or the product was made with faulty materials.

A design defect in a product means that the product was not designed correctly or there was an error in the way it was designed. A design defect can cause the product to fail or be dangerous if used.

The product could be dangerous if warning labels are missing or if the assembly and safety instructions are inadequate. The failure to warn consumers could cause you to unknowingly use the product in a way that can make it dangerous.

If a defective product causes an injury, the following parties could be responsible:

  • The manufacturer
  • The distributor
  • The wholesalers
  • The retailers
