Manufacturers have a legal obligation to package dangerous products in
a reasonably safe manner. This is especially true for products sold directly
to consumers. When someone is injured by a packaging failure they may
be entitled to compensation.
Examples of cases of a defective packaging claim include:
- Packages using cheap materials
- Leaking containers
- Containers that break from ordinary falls
- Caps that don't fully secure liquid contents
In certain instance, such as toxic drain cleaners or other acids, damages
for a defective packaging claim will include substantial medical bills,
disfigurement, pain and suffering and lost wages. Children are also vulnerable
to injures caused by insufficient packaging.
