WHAT IS A PRODUCTS LIABILITY CLAIM?
While each state’s laws are different, generally speaking, a manufacturer, seller, distributor or retailer can be held responsible for putting a defective or dangerous product out into the marketplace. While there are innumerable ways in which a product can fail, the legal claims arising from such a failure typically fall into one of three categories: design defects, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings.

What is a Design Defect?
A design defect occurs when the risks associated with the product’s design outweigh the benefits of that design. If there is a design defect associated with a product, then every product incorporating that design element may be defective.
What is a Manufacturing Defect?
A manufacturing defect occurs when something goes wrong in the manufacturing process for a particular product. In other words, as a result of a flaw in the manufacturing process, the particular product placed on the market was out of line with the manufacturer’s specifications. Depending on where and how the flaw arose in the manufacturing process, a manufacturing defect can affect a single isolated product or can affect thousands of products.
What Are Inadequate Warnings or Instructions?
Manufacturers must provide adequate warnings and instructions to allow their products to be used safely. This means that a manufacturer must inform consumers of the risks associated with the use of the product, how to safely use the product, and who should not use the product. A product liability claim can arise when a manufacturer fails to adequately warn or instruct consumers of the product’s risks resulting in harm.
What Do I Do If I Am The Victim Of A Defective Product?
