Types of Products Involved

Product liability claims can involve a wide range of products; essentially, any consumer product that causes harm due to a defect can be grounds for a lawsuit. 

Here are some of the most common types of products involved in product liability claims:

  • Motor vehicles: Cars, trucks, motorcycles, and their component parts like brakes, airbags, and tires.
  • Medical devices: Pacemakers, implants, surgical instruments, and medications.
  • Children’s products: Toys, cribs, car seats, and clothing.
  • Household products: Appliances, tools, furniture, and cleaning supplies.
  • Industrial machinery: Equipment used in factories and other workplaces.
  • Food products: Contaminated food or food that causes allergic reactions due to inadequate labeling.
  • Cosmetics: Products that cause skin irritation or other injuries.
  • Gardening supplies: This includes tools like shovels, rakes, hedge trimmers, lawnmowers, and even hoses and sprinklers. A defective gardening tool could cause cuts, punctures, or even serious injuries if a power tool malfunctions.
  • Small consumer tools: Products like hammers, screwdrivers, wrenches, and saws can also be involved in product liability claims if they are defective and cause harm. A broken hammer or a wrench that slips could cause cuts, bruises, or even broken bones.

Product Defects

Produce defects fall into three primary categories, each with specific implications. 

Manufacturing defects: These occur during the construction or production of the item. Despite a product being safely designed, flaws in the manufacturing process can render it hazardous.

Example: A bicycle whose frame welds were improperly done during manufacturing, leading to potential breakage during use.

Design defects: In these cases, the product's design is inherently unsafe, regardless of its manufacture or the quality of its components.

Example: A car model designed with a fuel tank placement that, upon impact, significantly increases the risk of fire or explosion.

Marketing defects (faulty warnings or instructions): This defect arises when a product lacks adequate instructions or warnings about its use, which could lead to misuse or unrecognized dangers.

Example: An electric heater without sufficient warning regarding its use near flammable materials, leading to fire hazards.

The complexities inherent in identifying and proving these defects require a thorough understanding of the interplay between product design, usage, and consumer safety.

Winning a Product Liability Claim

To prevail in a product liability claim, you must prove several vital elements. First, it must be demonstrated that the product was indeed defective. Second, it must be established that this defect directly caused your injury. Third, it must be shown that the product was being used in the intended manner at the time of the injury. 

Proving these elements can be daunting, owing to the sophisticated defense tactics often used by corporations and insurers whose job is limiting liability. It can also be difficult to scientifically demonstrate a defect and establish a direct link between the product and the injury.
