Any issue that renders a product hazardous for its intended use can be considered a product defect.
Product liability law divides defects into three broad categories. A product may be hazardous as a result of poor design, poor manufacturing, poor labeling, or a combination of all three
There are several types of product defects that can cause accidents and lead to personal injury:
Design defect: This type of defect occurs during the product’s design process and has an identical effect on all of the product’s units. Even if a product is manufactured as intended, a design flaw can render it inherently dangerous.
Warning defect: This type of defect appears when a product doesn’t have sufficient instructions or warnings for safe use, putting customers at risk of harm.
Marketing defect: when the product’s packaging, labeling, or advertising misrepresents the product’s intended use, it may contain inadequate warnings or instructions.
It’s important to note that a single product can have multiple types of defects and that these defects can lead to a wide range of accidents and injuries, such as;
Dangerous Drug Injuries
Regardless of the kind of defect, injury victims can typically pursue compensation for medical expenses and other losses; however, the liable party may differ, which may have an impact on your product liability lawsuit.
Who may be liable?
Product manufacturer: it may be the main product manufacturing company
Part manufacturer: it may be a different manufacturing company, such as the component manufacturer or the company that produces parts.
Product seller: Retailers and vendors may be held accountable for any injuries and damages that result from dangerous product flaws or damage. They may also be responsible if beforehand they knew about the defect but failed to inform or declare the defect.
