If you have injured by a product that you used, it is possible that you may have a product liability claim. There are several types of these claims, however, depending on the circumstances of your case. The differences between these types of claims are important since it can help you determine whether or not you have a valid claim. Below are the types of defective product claims you may be able to file.
Defectively Manufactured Products Claims
If the injury-causing product was defectively manufactured, this type of claim may be the best option. Defective manufacturing means that there was a flaw in the product due to an error. The defective product is different than all the other ones that were manufactured due to this flaw.
Examples of defective manufacturing may include:
- Broken or faulty parts
- Tainted products
- Missing parts
Defectively Designed Products Claims
In this type of claim, the design of the product is inherently dangerous or defective. There was no error or mishap in manufacturing that caused the product to be dangerous, but the design process created a product that was a hazard to users. Even if the product was made according to the designer’s specifications, it still may cause injury.
Examples of defective design may include:
- A product that doesn’t meet safety specifications
- A product that doesn’t meet expected function
- A product that causes injury during use due to poor design
Failure to Provide Adequate Warnings or Instructions Claims
This type of claim involves a lack of adequate warnings or instructions for use. Failure-to-warn claims typically involve a product that can be dangerous in ways that are not immediately obvious or that require special caution taken during use.
- Medications without appropriate warnings about side effects or drug interactions.
- Corrosive or toxic chemicals without safe handling and storage directions.
- Electrical, heated, or other potentially injuring products without warnings.
