Defective Packaging Claims

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.
