What Is a Defective Product?
A defective product is one that’s unsafe, even when utilized in its intended manner. Defective products may be the result of:
- Defective Design: A product can be designed in a way that makes it naturally defective. The flaws in the design process will always result in a defective product, regardless of the manufacturing procedure or user’s actions. For example, the design of a household appliance may make it prone to overheating and catching fire.
- Defective Manufacturing: The design of the product may be sound, but the manufacturing process can nonetheless cause danger for consumers. For example, a factory may build a car without brake pads. Until the manufacturing procedure is revised, all cars that are made using that process will come out defective.
- Defective Marketing: A product can be considered defective if the marketing promotes it being used in an unsafe manner or for an unintended purpose. Releasing a product without proper instructions and warning labels can be hazardous.
While most defects are attributed to the manufacturing process, it is often difficult to determine who’s liable for the damage caused to the consumer. By teaming up with an experienced firm, you can navigate the complicated field of product liability law and secure the compensation you deserve.
