Three Common Reasons For Filing Defective Product Lawsuits

September 9, 2016 Defective Products

Defective products can have tragic repercussions for unsuspecting families, which is why many consider defective product lawsuits following an injury or death due to improper manufacturing or warning labels.

There are three common ways a product can be deemed defective:

  1. A mishap at the factory where the product is manufactured, causing it to be ineffective or harmful. This may include medication that contains hazardous chemicals or does not list all of the possible side-effects.
  2. An inherent design flaw that prevents the product from fulfilling its intended purpose, which might include an engine that spontaneously combusts.
  3. An insufficient or non-existent warning label that could have prevented serious injury or death, such as in a house fire caused by the product, may give rise to a valid product injury claim.

But in order to prove in a court of law that negligence occurred, the product must have been used the way it was intended by the manufacturer. If the injured party were tampering with or using the product in any other way, it would be a much harder case to try.

Defective product lawsuits can help victim’s hold a company accountable for the sometimes minor production mistakes that may lead to dangerous, or even fatal consequences.
