Product Liability

Each year, thousands of injuries in the U.S can be traced back to defective or dangerous products. Such products can lead to serious personal injury or wrongful death, causing significant pain and suffering. Types of product defects include:

  • design defect

    Design Defects

    A design defect is when there is something in the way a product was created — an inherent flaw — that makes the product unreasonably dangerous to the consumer.

  • manufacturing defect

    Manufacturing Defects

    A manufacturing defect is when a product departs from its intended design when it’s being made. Even a seemingly well-designed product can injure consumers if it’s improperly manufactured.

  • marketing defect

    Marketing Defects

    Marketing defects are flaws in the way a product is marketed, such as improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.
