Defects In Design, Manufacturing And Marketing
There are several types of product liability cases. With 75 years of combined legal experience, our lawyers are well-equipped to handle them all. Most cases involve one of the issues below:
- Design defects: A design defect occurs when a manufacturer or producer designs a product so that it inherently functions in an unsafe manner. An example would be manufacturing a ladder with unstable rungs.
- Manufacturing defects: A manufacturing defect occurs when an item is well-designed, but produces poorly, due to incorrect materials or insufficient quality controls.
- Marketing defects: The manufacturer of a product is responsible for warning consumers of nonobvious dangers. One example would be failing to provide a warning on a household cleaner that tells buyers to wear gloves when using the product.
- Unreasonably dangerous products: Many products, like sharp knives, are dangerous by nature. However, we are all aware of their potential danger and guard ourselves accordingly. An unreasonably dangerous product is an item that can cause unexpected harm or that has risks that far outweigh the benefits.
