Understanding Product Defects And Who Is Responsible

When a product such as an auto component, a child's toy, a power tool, a machine, an appliance or another consumer or industrial product causes an injury, it may be because the product was defective. There are three types of product defects:

  • Design defect: The product does not include safety features such as guards or power cutoff to prevent injuries.
  • Manufacturing defects: The product breaks due to faulty materials or assembly, causing an injury.
  • Failure to warn: The product does not come with adequate safety warnings.

Even if you were using the product in a way that was not intended, you may have a case against the manufacturer, the distributor or the store that sold it if your use was something that could be reasonably anticipated.
