Types of Product Liability Claims

There are many different types of product liability claims, and it’s important that you know them if you have had an occurrence or incident with a product that you think damaged your health or otherwise impacted you. 

Read this guide about the different types of product liability claims and which one might fit what you are experiencing. Then reach out to an injury lawyer near you to get the ball rolling on your claim. 

Manufacturing Defects 

This is a simple defect but one that can happen quite often. It’s when a part of the product was made wrong, such as an error in the assembly line which could make the product different from all the other ones. Manufacturing defects are common, but they can be very devastating, especially when the error happens in motor vehicles or a piece of machinery.

Design Defects 

This is when something was wrong in the blueprints or the plan for the design or product. Maybe the designer or the engineer didn’t take into account what could go wrong. 

For some products, such as cars, there are legal tests that come into play before a product can be marketed or sold. If you have been injured by a car design defect, an expert may have to look at the original plans for the car and determine if there was a safer way it could have been made or if it passed all the legal tests and there was just some fluke. 

Marketing Defects (Failures to Warn) 

Anytime you buy a product, you have probably noticed that it comes with a large booklet about the safety protocols and how to properly use the device. Companies should always ensure that consumers have a safe way to use the product and know all the instructions they need to follow. 

If the instructions or the marketing did not account for such defects and did not warn the consumer, you may be able to file a liability claim saying you were not warned about the way you should use the product. 

Breach of Warranty 

Most products come with some sort of written warranty that will explain the advertising of the product or the way you can get a new product in the case of a defect. If the company refuses to pay for the new product and it clearly breaches the warranty that was included with the product, you might be able to file a liability claim.
