Defective products cause many injury accidents each year. Product liability cases focus on seeking the injured party compensation from the company who manufactured the product. Companies may know that their product could be potentially dangerous before releasing it on the market. This is when product liability is important for consumers to receive the compensation they deserve. Here are 3 types of product defects.
The first defect is improper design. When a company develops a product, they go through a number of stages to see how the product will function and if there are any dangers. Some companies may overlook any potential dangers and proceed to move on to the manufacturing stage. If there are any signs of danger during the design phase, the product will most likely be harmful for consumers.
The second defect happens while manufacturing the product. As the product is assembled, it can be clear that it will injure consumers. Sharp points and exposed electrical wires are just some potential manufacturing flaws. There have been several product liability cases where products have become flammable or have caused severe injury.
The third defect is marketing the product. The creators and marketers of the product may be aware that the product is not one hundred percent safe. There may not be a proper safety warning or careful instructions attached with the product. If a company fails to include this information, they will be liable for any product defects. Also, marketing companies may advertise a product unlawfully, misleading customers to use the product a certain way or say it is safe when it could be dangerous.
If you experience an injury from a product, make sure to seek medical attention, if needed, and a proper product liability attorney to receive the compensation you deserve.
