Stroller Defect LiabilityStrollers can be defective if; (1) there is a inherent design defect present; or (2) a manufacturers defect exist. Design defects are those that make the product defective by design. Examples include folding mechanisms, stroller wheels and other issues which make the design defective. When a product is defectively designed, the injured parties have recourse against all commercial sellers of the product. This includes resellers and manufacturers. Design defects make all models of the product in question defective. When a product is defective by design is refers to a actual design issue. For example if the stroller could have been designed more efficiently, so as to avoid injury, then it will be considered a valid product design defect. Manufacturer defects are defects which occur at the time of manufacturing. This can apply to a particular unit or the entire group of products manufactured. When a product has a manufacturers defect, it refers to some inadequacy in the manufacturing process that makes the product defective. The use of sub-grade parts or improper manufacturing techniques can all make the product defective. If your child has been injured as a result of what you believe is a defective stroller, contact a stroller defect attorney in Los Angeles for help with your claim. You may be entitled to damages for your injuries.
