Common Defective Product Issues
The three most common product liability lawsuits are: manufacturing defect, defective design, and failure to warn. All of these claims assert that the plaintiff is owed compensation from the defendant because the defendant was aware that their product was faulty. The claimant must show that even though they used the product correctly they were still injured due to the failure of or defect in the product.
Manufacturing defect – This claim asserts that there was a flaw that occurred in the manufacturing process which caused the product being manufactured to not be safe. These clams are often identified by a production code and focus on a product that was manufactured within a specific time frame when the manufacturing flaw happened.
Poor design – this type of claim charges that there is something inherently unsafe in how the product was designed.
Failure to warn – This claim asserts that the manufacturer or other parties involved did not properly warn the buyer or user about any possible dangers posed by using the product or did not give adequate instruction for how to use the product in a safe manner.
Large product defect claims are many times settled out of court, and may be grouped as multi-district litigation (geographically) or consolidated as a class action case. If the claim has been consolidated as a class action case, the settlement will then be publicized and other consumers who were also injured by the defective product will be given the opportunity to submit evidence to show that they also deserve compensation with a defective products lawyer.
