Thousands of products are recalled every year because of defects. At times, these defects can cause injury or disease. The manufacturer is held responsible most of the time for this because it is their responsibility to make sure all of their products are safe for the public and their buyers to use. Defective products can come from all types of companies big and small.
Products don’t just have to be physical objects but they can also be intangible objects including but not limited to, naturals (animals), real estate (house), and writings (navigational charts). Defective product claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty of fitness depending on the jurisdiction within the claim is based. In any case one must prove that it is not their fault and that the product is defective. A claim for compensation can be brought forward with the help of our seasoned defective product lawyers in Greenville, SC.
There are three types of product defects that incur liability in manufacturers and suppliers:
- Design defects, which exist before the product is manufacturer and are dangerous to use due to a design flaw.
- Manufacturing defects occur when the product is manufactured or produced. Only a few products out of the many products or devices made are actually defective in this case.
- Defects in marketing, where in defective products can be determined by wrong labeling and failure to warn the consumer of dangers in the product.
Defective products are a strict liability case which means that if there is a defect in the product that causes harm, whoever created the product will be held liable and it is irrelevant whether or not the manufacturer or supplier exercised great care. If the product harms the consumer it will result in a lawsuit and that is the risk the manufacturer is willing to take when creating the product.
