Understanding Product Liability Cases
There are a few types of product defects that may cause injuries that you should know of. They include:
An error in an assembly that is not intended to be part of the product.
A flaw in the original blueprint of a product that causes it to be dangerous and creates a hazard for potential users.
Failing to Warn Consumers
A manufacturer’s failure to warn users of potential risks that may cause injuries.
If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, there are typically three types of lawsuits your case may fall under.
You must show that carelessness in the design or manufacture of the product led to your injuries.
With strict liability claims, the injured party is only required to prove that a defect in a product exists and that an injury was sustained as a result.
Breach of Warranty
When a product is sold, there are two warranties the buyer can rely on: the express warranty and the implied warranty. A breach of warranty lawsuit covers any person who would reasonably be expected to use the product.
