Types of Defective Product Liability Claims

Our product defect attorney understands when you purchase a product, you’re expecting that product to be safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Defective products can cause serious injuries or even death. When a defective product causes harm, the injured party may be able to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer or seller of the product. Let’s talk about the different types of these claims.

Manufacturing Defects

A manufacturing defect is a term used to describe a flaw or abnormality in a product that was caused by a mistake or error during the manufacturing process. This defect makes the product different from other products of the same type and can result in the product being unsafe or unusable.

A defective product can also cause financial hardship for the consumer, as they may be required to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. This is why it is important for consumers to understand their legal right to a defective product attorney.

In addition to helping individual consumers, a product defect attorney also plays an important role in promoting public safety. By holding manufacturers accountable for their products, they help to ensure that companies take the necessary steps to identify and address potential defects before they reach the market.

Design Defects

Unlike manufacturing defects, which occur during the production process, design defects are present in the product from the outset. This means that every product made according to the same design is potentially dangerous. Examples of design defects include a car that has a tendency to roll over easily or a medical device that is prone to failure. One of the most infamous medical device design defects is the hernia mesh case.

Design defects can be particularly dangerous because they affect an entire line of products, rather than just a few isolated instances. In order to pursue a design defect claim, a plaintiff must prove that the design of the product was unreasonably dangerous and that there was a feasible alternative design that would have made the product safer. A product defect attorney can help you determine whether you have a valid design defect claim and assist you in pursuing compensation for any injuries or damages you have suffered.

Marketing Defects

Marketing defects are another type of defective product liability claim that can arise when a manufacturer fails to provide adequate warnings or instructions for the safe use of a product. This can include a failure to disclose known side effects of a medication or a failure to provide sufficient warnings about the dangers of a particular product’s use.

Marketing defects can also occur when a manufacturer fails to provide clear and complete instructions for the proper use and operation of a product. In order to pursue a marketing defect claim, a plaintiff and their product defect attorney must prove that the manufacturer failed to provide adequate warnings or instructions and that this failure directly led to their injury or damages.
