What are Three Types of Product Defects?

Though there are countless products out there that can cause injury to consumers, they generally all fall under one of three categories of product liability: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. Depending on which category you have, you as the plaintiff will need to prove certain things in order to hold at-fault parties responsible. An experienced personal injury attorney can assess your unique situation and determine which of the following categories you fall under.

Verdicts & Settlements

Design Defects

When a product has a design defect, this means there are issues with the engineering of the product. For example, if the product is designed to protect consumers but in fact fails to accomplish this because of engineering, it’s considered to have a design defect. Examples include products that are dangerous for children while their intended use is for children.

Manufacturing Defects

The most obvious type of product liability case is when a product has a manufacturing issue, which means there were errors in the making of the product. Some examples including a scooter missing its brakes, a medication containing a poisonous substance, or a swing set that has a cracked chain. If you can show that your injuries were caused by the manufacturing defects, you may be able to hold manufacturers, such as factories, responsible.

Marketing Defects

Also known as a “failure to warn” defect, marketing defects refer to a product’s general failure to provide adequate instructions about the product’s use or any potential risks. These claims often involve a product that is dangerous, but in a way that’s not obvious to consumers. Many dangerous drug lawsuits are filed when patients take an approved drug without being told of its association with harmful substances. Another example are paint-removing chemicals that don’t come with instructions on how to handle it safely.

Real Client Testimonials

No improvement needed. I couldn’t ask for a better law firm to represent me. You all are the best.

- Rebecca C.

Olen Haynes Jr. came highly recommended and was the best choice I could have made following my injury. From our first meeting, I felt confident and completely at ease knowing he was handling my case. As a veteran myself, I took additional comfort in knowing he was a veteran. He and his staff are certainly knowledgeable and professional, but above that I felt as if I was being taken care of by my family. That may sound disingenuous, but throughout his handling of my case, I felt totally at peace and was confident of the best possible outcome. In conclusion, Olen is someone I gladly call my friend now… as well as his staff.
