What are the three types of product defects?

When you purchase a product or service, you generally expect that product to work properly or perform the service that it promised. Product defects can occur, and in some cases, the error may end up harming you as the user. Manufacturers have a responsibility to the consumer to provide a product that is functional. Errors can occur anywhere along the line of making the product, from creation of the design to the manufacturing process. There are several ways that imperfections or malfunctions in the product can affect consumers’ safety.  

Acute soft-tissue injuries

Whether someone in Bossier City rear-ends your vehicle in stop-and-go traffic, or they run a red light and t-bone you at an intersection, the resulting blow can cause a number of types of injuries. The team at Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates is familiar with the ways that a motor vehicle crash can leave a Louisiana resident hurting, even in the case of an injury that does not show up on an x-ray.

Medication errors and how they can affect your life

Medication errors are a serious problem that can happen for a variety of reasons. If a patient is given the wrong type of medication or the wrong dosage, the consequences can be devastating. In the United States, close to 1.3 million people deal with injuries related to medication errors every year. Between your healthcare professional and the pharmacist, you should trust that you are getting exactly what you need in the form that you need it.

To this end, it’s important to be aware of the common signs of a neglectful nursing home to prevent tragedy from occurring.
