Products Liability Explained
If a product is determined to be defective, this means that the product is unreasonably dangerous for its intended use. In many situations on a daily basis, you are faced with products that would be considered dangerous, such as a knife. While a knife constitutes as being a “dangerous” product, the law does not see it as “unreasonably” dangerous. But if the knife you are using has a blade that is shown to easily break under normal conditions, this could make it a defective product. You may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer or company selling the product if you have been injured due to a defect in that product.
Types of Defects
In Products Liability cases, there are generally three types of defects that would determine a product to be considered unreasonably dangerous. These include:
- Design Defects – A flaw in the intended design of a product.
- Manufacturing Defects – When the product does not conform to the specifications of the designer or manufacturer.
- Marketing Defects – Improper product labels, insufficient instructions, or the failure to warn about a product’s hidden dangers.
