Products with Improper Design
One of the most common, dangerous forms of product liability occurs when
a product is designed improperly. A mistake in the design process can
lead to a product that is inherently unsafe, causing untold damage to
consumers like you. Although you may not be aware of it, you probably
have at least some basic knowledge of product liability cases that involve
an incorrect design.
For example, when there is a massive car recall, this is usually due to
an improper design that has resulted in an entire vehicle line being unsafe.
In proving product liability due to improper design, you will need to
show that the entire product line is unsafe, and that your injury was
not an isolated incident.
Warning Labels and Product Liability
Some products such as paints, chemicals or drugs come with a level of risk
that many consumers may not be aware of. Because of this, manufacturers
are required to properly label their risky products in order to minimize
consumer risk. Unfortunately, some manufacturers neglect this responsibility,
which can result in a product liability case.
A common product liability case involving a missing warning label or a
lack of proper instruction involves drugs. If a drug can result in serious,
harmful side effects, there must be a warning label to inform consumers
of the risk. If no label is present, and an injury occurs, then the drug
manufacturer can be vulnerable to a product liability claim.
In cases involving warning labels, you will need to prove the manufacturer
did not provide adequate warnings or instructions and you were injured
as a result.
Imperfectly Manufactured Products
The majority of product liability cases involve a product that contains
a manufacturing defect that causes it to operate in an unintended manner.
A good example of this would be a contaminated food product that causes
an illness in the people who eat it. Defective products are usually limited
to a small batch or single instance, resulting in a limited number of injuries.
When filing a product liability claim based on a defective product, you
will need to prove the manufacturing defect and show that it was the defect
and not your improper usage that caused your injury.
