Types of Product Defects
Although product liability claims can involve countless products and situations,
they typically involve three main types of product defects.
Manufacturing Errors: Many products are defective and dangerous due to errors that occurred
during the manufacturing process. The flawed products can cause severe
injuries or illness, while the same products from other manufacturing
batches may be perfectly manufactured.
Design Defects: Defective design claims involve products that are unreasonably dangerous
due to flaws in the design. These types of defects are not caused by errors
or negligence in the manufacturing process; the products are inherently
dangerous because of their designs.
Failure to Warn or Provide Adequate Instructions: In addition to creating products that are reasonably safe, manufacturers
also have a responsibility to provide consumers with instructions on how
to safely use the products and any injuries that could result from improper
use. If the manufacturer failed to adequately instruct consumers or warn
of potential hazards, they could be held liable for any resulting injuries.
