How Do Defective Products Cause Injuries?

Every year, thousands of people are injured by unsafe or dangerous products. But what makes a product unsafe isn’t always the same type of defect. 

Generally, products have three different types of defects, and filing a claim for your injuries and damages requires you or a lawyer to figure out which ones caused you harm. 

They are:

  • Defective Design – Some products have a design with some sort of inherent flaw that makes them unreasonably dangerous to use. These products can be said to have been defectively designed. 
  • Defective Manufacturing – Sometimes a product’s design might be safe, but it’s the final product itself that deviates from the original design and proves unsafe to consumers. 
  • Defective Marketing – This form of a product defect refers to a product’s lack of written instructions for safe use or lack of warning about potential consequences of unsafe use. 

Regardless of the actual problem with a product, what’s clear is that unsafe consumer products can have disastrous consequences, with severe injuries up to and including death. 

When someone else’s mistake causes you or a loved one pain, you deserve justice. And you might be surprised that more entities than just the manufacturer can be held liable for your injuries. Some other examples include:

  • Distributors
  • Wholesalers
  • Retailers
  • Third-party contractors

If you’re unsure about the potential at-fault parties in your defective product claim, you can talk to an experienced product liability lawyer who can ensure that all responsible parties are served with a lawsuit. 

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get in a Defective Product Claim?

The actual value of a product liability claim can depend on a number of factors, including the extent of your injuries and damages, as well as the gravity of the negligence the implicated parties are responsible for. 

Generally, damages in these claims are broken down into two types: economic and non-economic damages. Some examples of both of these include:
