Defective products fall into one of three common classifications:
- Design defects: These are defects that occur when a product’s original design makes it fundamentally hazardous. Defects in design exist independent of the manufacturing process. These defects typically end up with these products being recalled by either a state or federal regulator, or the manufacturer.
- Manufacturing defects: The manufacturing process can also introduce a defect in a consumer product. Most of the time, these manufacturing flaws only affect a small portion of a corporation’s products.
- Failure-to-warn defects: Manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers also can be held legally responsible when they fail to warn consumers that the product that they are buying can be inherently dangerous, even if it is used properly. These “failure-to-warn” issues can transform a properly designed and manufactured item into a dangerous product.

In most states, a company is responsible for a design defect when a foreseeable risk existed even when the product was manufactured and used as originally designed. Typically, plaintiffs must prove the risk could have been mitigated with the simple adoption of a reasonable alternative design, which was:
- Economically realistic
- Not contrary to the product’s original purpose
