Faulty products cause harm to individuals due to a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or a marketing defect.
If a product has a design defect, it is inherently unsafe no matter how it is manufactured or used.
This type of defect is the result of a flaw in the manufacturing process.
Marketing defects refer to improper practices in marketing, such as unclear instructions and mislabeling.
You may have a product liability case if:
The product had an unreasonably dangerous defect or fault
You sustained an injury while using the product the way it was intended
The product hadn't been changed from the way it was sold
You were unaware of the defect when you used the product
A faulty product can be something as important as a car airbag, or something as seemingly insignificant as a toy. Designers, manufacturers, marketers, and retailers have a responsibility to the consumer to make sure sure the product does not cause them harm. If it does cause them harm, they can be held accountable under certain circumstances.
