THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO TYPES OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS
A defective product has flaws in its production, design, or inability to disclose inherent hazards. Unassuming consumers suffer thousands of injuries each year, including shattered bones, brain injuries, and soft tissue injuries as a result of the unpredictable danger of defective items.
If a defective product causes you harm, you may be entitled to compensation through a product liability lawyer from the responsible inventor, manufacturer, supplier, importer, or seller along the distribution chain.
You can determine what caused your damages, who is responsible, and how much compensation you can seek with the assistance of a product liability attorney at the Caputo & Mariotti Law Offices. There are several different types of product liability claims so it’s crucial to be aware of them before you bring your claim.
Different Types of Product Liability Claims
Defect In Design
Liability claims are often brought on when a product is designed poorly and has a defect. A product with a design defect that is unreasonably risky from the outset raises the possibility of consumer death or injury. Design defects commonly result in widespread product recalls.
A charger that catches fire when used to its maximum capacity is an example of a design defect, as is a baby toy with tiny pieces that might suffocate a child.
Defect In Manufacturing
The design of a product is not an issue when there is a manufacturing defect. Instead, the defect appeared during the product’s assembly. For instance, a manufacturing fault might lead to the wrong material being utilized to create a product. As a result, the product does not adhere to its original design and therefore does not function as safely as expected.
A business may be sued for product liability if it fails to give consumers the required warnings regarding a product. These product liability cases are sometimes referred to as “failure to warn” or “product marketing defects.” Here, there occurs a mistake in the public marketing of a product. Consumers risk being harmed when utilizing a product if there aren’t adequate instructions or cautions about how to use the product safely.
Consumers are more careful while utilizing a product when the manufacturer provides suitable usage instructions. Consumers may be injured by a product if there are no warning labels or instructions, and such statements come under the area of marketing defects.
