Is the product inherently dangerous by design?

WHAT MAKES A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT?
Generally speaking, there are three ways a product can be considered defective: by design, by construction, or through its marketing.
- Design flaws: These occur when a manufacturer fails to remove an inherent hazard in the product. Defective products, once they’re revealed, are normally recalled either by the manufacturer or the government. Design defect claims arise from these products whether the product was built to the manufacturer’s specifications or not.
- Manufacturing defects: These occur when a properly designed product is somehow built improperly. These defects normally emerge within a small batch of products.
- Marketing defects: These flaws, which can also be called “failure to warn,” exist when the manufacturer fails to clearly alert consumers to a product’s intrinsic hazards. If the product is dangerous when used as directed or is more dangerous than an ordinary consumer should expect, the manufacturer can be held liable.
