Examples of Product Liability

In today’s technological era, we might expect products to be properly designed and manufactured without defects. Unfortunately, all too often, that is not the case. Product liability is a broad area of law that covers a multitude of issues surrounding the manufacturing and usability of products that cause injury including:

  • Defective Design Products may have a design flaw such as missing safeguards or elements that prevent misuse. Locking lids on pressure cookers or blade guards on lawn equipment are examples of past defective designs that have led to a lawsuit.
  • Hidden Defect Defects of some products, specifically medical devices or medications, are not always known until they are in use and cause additional injury or illness to a person. Food poisoning due to contaminated materials or a dirty manufacturing plant also falls into the hidden defect category as well as products contaminated with toxic materials such as lead or asbestos that can lead to illness or injury years after the use of the product.
  • Failure to Warn Manufacturers are required to label all products with adequate warnings of possible injuries. A product can be made dangerous or more dangerous on assembly or use with the failure to provide appropriate labeling that can result in injury.
  • Malfunction When a product does not work as intended there is the potential for injury. Devices with an automatic shut-off or machines that can potentially emit toxic fumes have been the subject of malfunctioning product lawsuits in the past.

Depending on the circumstances of injury caused by a product your lawyer may be able to allege negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty in a lawsuit.
