Product liability is a form of personal injury that doesn’t necessarily receive much mainstream attention, but it’s certainly relevant. Have you ever suffered an injury or damage because of a specific product you used? If so, you may have a legitimate defective product liability claim. Whether it’s due to defective manufacturing, defective design, or a failure to provide reasonable warning or instructions, you deserve to receive compensation. It’s important to understand the distinctions within these categories and how that impacts your claim.
A product that’s defectively manufactured is a clear sign of liability. There are plenty of different variations when it comes to defective manufacturing. For example, in medicine, it could be that the liquid was tainted. A similar example is in toys, as a bike with a defective chain could lead to a personal injury. The list goes on and on, but the injury itself must occur because of the product’s defectiveness.
Defectively Designed Products
A product’s design can easily be the cause of personal injury. It’s not saying that the manufacturing process was flawed in any way. Claiming a defectively designed product means that the design itself is dangerous, and it will automatically lead to a personal injury. Again, there are plenty of different examples within this realm, and if the injury is not inflicted because of the design, then it may not be a legitimate claim. Defectively designed products include something like the Toyota Corolla model from last year, which had a defective airbag system.
Failure To Provide A Reasonable Warning
This is perhaps the most specific of product liability claims, therefore making it the most difficult to argue in a sense. These cases usually revolve around a dangerous product, but one that is not incredibly obvious. The most common failure in this category is with medicine, and in particular, a medicine that fails to provide the corrects warnings or side effects on its label. Every case is different, but if you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury from a defective product or warning failure, do not hesitate to contact the Snyder Law Group today.
