What Are the Different Types of Product Defects?
There are three different types of product defects that may cause injuries: design, manufacturing, and marketing defects.
As its name suggests, a design defect is an issue with the way that the product is designed. Products with these defects are dangerous to use because of the way they are designed, not the way they are manufactured or assembled.
A manufacturing defect occurs when the product is being manufactured. Examples of manufacturing defects may include using the wrong nuts or bolts, using outdated components, or failing to assemble a product correctly. These errors can make a product defective and dangerous to use.
The final type is a marketing defect, which occurs when a product is sold without the proper warning labels or instructions. Labels and instructions help consumers understand how to safely use a product. Without this information, consumers may seriously injure themselves.
Who is Liable For Defective Products?
Anyone who was involved in the process of designing, manufacturing, and selling a defective product may be held liable in a product liability case. Some of the potentially liable parties include:
- Product designer
- Assembler of the product
- Manufacturers of the different parts of the product
- Wholesale companies
Liability does not have to fall on only one of these parties. In many cases, more than one party is held liable. The number of potentially liable parties is one of the reasons why product liability cases are so complex.
What Needs to Be Proven to Win A Product Liability Case in Baltimore?
The strict liability law is applied to most product liability cases, which means the plaintiff does not need to prove that the defendant was negligent in order to win compensation. Instead, the plaintiff must prove:
- The product was defective, and
- The product was reasonably dangerous as a result of this defect, and
- The defect existed at the time the product left the seller and the product did not substantially change by the time it was in the plaintiff’s possession, and
- The plaintiff used the product as it was intended, and
- The defect directly caused the plaintiff’s injuries.
There’s no need to prove that the defect was created as a result of another party’s negligence. Proving these five key elements is enough to win your case and recover compensation for your injuries.
