Common Types of Defective Products
We expect companies to produce products that are safe for public use, but that is not always the case. Although product recalls can help consumers stay informed, for some victims, a recall comes much too late after they have suffered illness or injury.
Some common types of product liability claims include:
- Dangerous children’s toys
- Defective baby and toddler child seats
- Faulty vehicle airbags
- Defective medical devices
- Dangerous drugs / medications
- Talcum powder
In 2014, more than 30 million vehicles were recalled for various defective that could increase the risk of an injury after or during an auto accident.
Causes of Defects
There are three main product liability claim categories a court may use to determine if the manufacturer or distributor will be held liable for a product injury.
Design defects – defects that were prevalent in the designing process of the product or device.
Manufacturing defects – these defects occur when the product or device is being assembled, which could be a result of a human or machine error.
Failure to warn – if a company fails to warn consumers about product injury risks or potential side effects, a court may hold the company liability for failing to provide adequate labeling or packaging.
