Types Of Product Defects

Depending on the type of defect, legal remedies for any injuries are bound to vary. Some examples of product defects may include:

  • Design: If there is a defect or flaw in the product’s design, it must be proven unsafe for consumers. You need legal representation to prove that the manufacturer or supplier is liable for your injuries.
  • Manufacturing: Manufacturing defects are the most difficult to prove because you need to have knowledge about how the manufacturer is making the product. If you feel there may be a defect with the manufacturing, contact an attorney today.
  • Warning: For there to be a defect in the warning, you must prove that the manufacturer, supplier, or any other party in the distribution chain was aware of potential hazards with the use of the product, but did not warn the consumer in the product’s warnings and instructions.

 

Are There Remedies?

The two main legal remedies for product defect cases are negligence and strict liability—and this all depends on the circumstances of your particular case and the injuries, damages, and losses from the product.
