What Is Product Liability?

We purchase products under the assumption that they will be safe to use. However, flaws in the design, construction, or marketing of a product can create hazards that lead to injury and even death.

In the event that a defective product harms a user, you can bring a lawsuit against the responsible party and receive compensation for your injuries—if you can prove negligence led to your accident. This type of claim is known as “product liability.”

Types of Defective Product Cases

Determining who is liable in a defective product case can be tricky.

After all, so many people are involved in the process of making and selling products, such as:

  • Designers
  • Manufacturers
  • Delivery drivers
  • Store associates
  • Marketers, etc.

Because of this, honing in on the appropriate person(s) and/or companies to file a lawsuit against can seem almost impossible.

There are three primary types of product defects:

  • Design defects: If a product is dangerous because of the way it is designed and the designer either didn’t notice or ignored the hazard, you can sue the designer for damages.
  • Manufacturer defects: Manufacturer defects occur when there is a flaw in the manufacturing process. A manufacturing defect can affect a single product on the assembly line or an entire batch.
  • Marketing defects: Also known as “failure to warn,” marketing defects occur when consumers are not notified of dangers associated with the proper use of a product. This is why you see warning labels on products that have the potential to cause harm.

If you are having trouble determining who is liable, we can help. Our defective product lawyers understand this process and how to investigate the cause of an injury to pinpoint its source. We are happy to determine the at-fault party on your behalf.

What Are the Most Common Product Defects?

While any product has the potential to be defective, some are more likely to cause serious injury in the event of a malfunction. Common product defects include:

  • Automotive defects, such as faulty brakes and airbags that don’t deploy
  • Defective drugs, which can cause patients to become ill or suffer allergic reactions
  • Defective medical devices, such as faulty surgical devices and implants
  • Toys and other defective children’s products, like playground equipment
  • Heavy machinery defects, which can be particularly dangerous for construction, factory, and other heavy industry workers
