Types of Defective Product Cases

Product liability law covers a wide array of situations and includes injuries arising out of dangerous toys, failing car parts, toxic materials and defective prescription drugs, among other things. Product liability cases generally fall under three main categories: design defects, manufacturing defects and inadequate warnings.

The laws regarding a manufacturer's responsibilities toward consumers vary depending on the type of product in question and the state where the product liability lawsuit is brought.

Defective Product Design

Lawsuits arising out of defectively designed products center around inherent flaws in a product that cause injuries even when the product is used properly. Design defects occur before the manufacturing process and can include failing bike brakes or all-metal hip implants that send metal debris throughout a person's body.

Manufacturing Flaws in Products

Sometimes even properly designed products can harm consumers due to manufacturing flaws. A manufacturing flaw can include shoddy construction work that weakens part of a product, causing it to break and injure a person.

Inadequate Instructions or Failure to Warn

Many properly used products injure individuals due to the failure of a manufacturer to warn a consumer of a product's hazards. Failure to warn cases are commonly brought against pharmaceutical companies that downplay the serious side effects of prescription drugs and manufacturers of asbestos-containing products that can cause mesothelioma and other cancers when disturbed.
