Defective & Dangerous Products

Individuals have the right to expect that the products we buy will function properly without putting us at risk. However, defects in the design or in the manufacturing process or a failure to warn of a known hazard can result in very serious injuries.

Injuries from defective or dangerous products fall into one of three categories:

Manufacturing defect — Failures in the manufacturing of an individual good or a particular batch of product are said to be manufacturing defects. The dangerous conditions may be limited to a single instance or run of the product.

Design defect — Design defects generally appear in all instances of a product produced. If there is a design defect, anyone who purchases or uses the product may be at risk.

Failure to warn — Some products may be safe for their intended purposes, but may also have alternate uses that can cause injury. If the manufacturer should have foreseen that alternate use, the manufacturer may have a duty to warn consumers of a potential injury. If they fail to provide appropriate warnings, they may be liable for injuries sustained from those hazardous alternative uses.
