As consumers, we trust that the companies making our everyday products take the time to ensure that these products are safe and will not cause us any harm. When a company is negligent in ensuring the safety of their products but still make them available to consumers for use, individuals can become seriously injured. If an individual is injured due to the fault of a product defect, they should consider bringing a product liability case that can not only help them recover compensation for their injuries but also hold the company responsible for failing to ensure safety. There are several different kinds of product defects, including design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn.
- Design defects are when the company failed to use a safer, equally practical, and economically feasible design and it ultimately resulted in the injury of a consumer
- Manufacturing defects are when the design was sound but someone in the manufacturing process deviated from the original design and it resulted in a dangerous product that caused the injury of a consumer
- When a company fails to provide adequate warnings or instructions on the safe use of a product, a consumer can become injured
