What should I know about product liability?

Whenever you purchase a product, you may put a lot of thought into the exact product you buy, but one thing you rarely think about is all of the possibilities of what can go wrong and how you can become injured due to a product defect. Unfortunately, defects happen with products ranging from everything including car parts to household goods to food. If you have been injured because of issues with a product, you may have a product liability case. There are many different types of defects that will be investigated.

Design Defects

The design of a product is one of the most important places to investigate when you are looking into what caused you to become injured by a product. If something was overlooked when a product was designed, it can result in catastrophe.

Manufacturing Defects

When you are injured by a product but it was not because of the design, the next place to look is the manufacturer. If a person who worked at the manufacturing plant strayed from the design, it may have caused you to become injured. Whether the manufacturing defect was intentional or not, you need to determine who is liable.

Failure to Warn

When a product fails to give you the proper warning or is not labeled properly, it can result in injuries. This is the reason that paper or styrofoam coffee cups will warn you that the beverage is hot or that sometimes, food products will state that they are made in the same factory as tree nuts.
