What are common product defects?

People can be injured by all sorts of defective or dangerous products. Defective electronics, tools, toys, vehicles, appliances, medical devices, and prescription medications can all cause injuries or other illnesses if defective. Product defects are typically divided into three categories based on the source of the hazard:

  • Design defects: A design defect occurs when the design of the product itself is flawed. This often leads to full product recalls.
  • Manufacturing defects: A manufacturing defect occurs during the product’s construction process. Such defects may affect only one product or a few but may result in recalls as well.
  • Marketing defects: A marketing defect occurs when the product is being promoted and sold to consumers. Marketing defects often take the form of “failure to warn” claims, which result when a product is missing proper warning labels and/or instructions.

By consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer, you can better understand if you have a product liability case. An experienced products liability lawyer will know who to hold responsible for injuries caused by dangerous or defective products.

What kinds of compensation can be recovered in a products liability case?

In individual and class action lawsuits involving defective products, an injured or wronged consumer may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills related to their injury and ongoing medical treatment, if needed
  • Lost earnings and the loss of earning potential
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Property damage and replacement of the defective product

In some cases, punitive damages may be appropriate. Punitive damages are meant to punish wrongdoers for their behavior or failure to take action. For example, if a manufacturer had knowledge of a dangerous or defective condition and failed to take steps to keep consumers safe, injured victims may be entitled to punitive damages.

How can I reduce my risk of being injured by a defective product?

Consumers shouldn’t have to live their lives in constant paranoia, worried by the thought of using a product that may be defective or dangerous. Fortunately, there are easy steps you can take to reduce the risk of being injured by a defective product. These steps include:

  • Following instructions: Read and follow all product instructions carefully before using a product. Thoroughly review any owners’ manual safety advice included with your purchase. If using medication, look over your prescription information and discuss potential side effects with your doctor.
  • Check for recalls: Product recalls are listed online here and are updated regularly. When researching or purchasing something new, it never hurts to check if the product has been recalled recently or in the past.
  • Register your product: Some products come with free registration forms. If you mail in the registration form, the company will notify you in the event of a recall.
  • Use common sense: Use products as they are intended. Wear safety equipment when operating machinery or using power tools. Inspect toys for small or sharp parts before giving them to a child.

If you are injured after using a product, you may be entitled to compensation. If you were using the product correctly and carefully and got hurt through no fault of your own, you might be able to bring a lawsuit against the party responsible for the defect. We can help.
