What Are Defective Product Claims?
Defective product claims fall under product liability law, which dictates when and how a manufacturer can be sued for making unsafe items. Creators and manufacturers are obligated to create products that are designed and tested to be safe. When an item fails to do what it was promised or created to do, then the damage caused by the product should be paid for by the company. Unfortunately, manufacturers aren’t known for their altruism, and many people who are harmed by defective products are left bankrupt by their medical bills, lifetime care, lost earnings, and more.
Defective products include nearly any type of product, including:
- Bicycle helmets
- Safety harnesses
- Electric blankets
- Harmful food/medication
- Dangerous toys
- Park playgrounds
- Medical items
Types of Product Liability Claims
Defective product claims have three categories: defective design, defective manufacturing, and failure to warn. Each type of claim is determined by at what point the product became dangerous to the consumer. Some items are inherently dangerous, indicating poor design. Other products are safe normally, but may have been contaminated or poorly made. Still others can be safe and well-manufactured, but lack appropriate instructions for safe usage.
How Do You Prove Product Liability?
To win a product liability case, you must be able to prove:
- You were injured or you suffered losses. If you were not injured or there was no damage, then you do not have a claim.
- The product is actually defective. There may have been a flaw in the making of the item, it was designed poorly, or the company failed to provide adequate warnings or instructions.
- The defect is what caused your injury or losses.
- You were using the product as it was intended.
Thorough Investigation from Industry Experts
The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C. has been investigating the causes of serious injuries since 1987. Our approach demands a thorough investigation of every possible cause—including figuring out if your injuries were caused or made worse by unsafe products. For instance, if you were injured in a rollover car accident, then your car’s manufacturing might have been a factor. It’s not necessary for a product to cause your injury in order to hold the manufacturer responsible. If your damages were made worse by a defective product, the makers can be held responsible for some of your damages.
