Product Defect Guide From A Product Liability Attorney
There are basically three types of defects in a product that can cause harm to a consumer and give rise to a cause of action. The presence of the defect must be proven in order for the consumer to progress his or her claim. Tim Bowden is well versed in these types of cases and has proven time and time again their presence in a product.
1. Defective Design. This type of defect means that the product itself is inherently defective in its design. The product is designed in such a way that it is unsafe and can cause potential harm. The defect did not occur in the manufacturing of the product but the product design itself is dangerous, regardless of if it was manufactured according to the standards of the manufacturer.
2. Defect in the Manufacturing of the Product. For this type of defect, the product’s design is safe but the defect of the product occurred somewhere along the manufacturing line. This means that the product design is fine but there was a flaw or problem that occurred while it was being made or manufactured. Other products of this design which have been manufactured the same way are safe, except for this one or this batch.
3. Defective Marketing. Defective marketing means that the product was safely designed and safely manufactured, but there was a failure to inform or warn the consumer as to the proper handling or consumption of the product and the potential danger if done otherwise. This type of defect usually occurs when appliances or medicines are involved.
