Types of Defective Product Liability Claims
Injured Because of a Defective Product?
If you have suffered a serious injury due to the use of a defective product, you may have an opportunity to file a defective product liability claim. While the range of defective product cases is wide, these type of personal injury claims fall into three categories of product liability: (1) defective manufacture; (2) defective design; or (3) failure to provide proper warnings or instructions regarding the use of the product itself.
A defectively manufactured product contains flaws derived from an error that occurred in the process of making it, such as an issue at the factory where it was created. As a result of that error, the product caused harm to the customer. However, manufacturing errors affect only some of the defective products, as opposed to the entire batch.
On the other hand, defective design claims do not derive from some mistake in the manufacturing process. Instead, the inherent flaw in the design could affect the entire line of products, making them inherently dangerous despite the fact that it was perfectly made according to manufacturing standards. This type of defective product liability claim typically involves defective car parts.
Failure to Provide Adequate Warnings & Instructions
Failure-to-warn claims often involve products that are hazardous in some form, but not obvious to the user or requires the use to exercise specific precautions or awareness when using it. So if a certain kind of medication is associated with dangerous side effects that are not included in the warning label, you might be eligible to file a defective product claim for this reason.
