Injuries can arise through the use of everyday products, from household tools and appliances, to food and clothing.
The law of defective products can be divided into three categories:
- Manufacturing defects are those that occur in the manufacturing process and usually involve poor-quality materials or shoddy workmanship.
- Design defects occur where the product design is inherently dangerous no matter how carefully manufactured; this may be demonstrated either by showing that the product fails to satisfy ordinary consumer expectations as to what constitutes a safe product, or that the risks of the product outweighs its benefits.
- Failure-to-warn defects arise in products that carry inherent and non-obvious dangers which the designer, manufacturer, supplier or retailer failed to mitigate through adequate warnings to the user.
If you’ve sustained injures in the course of using of a product in the way it was intended, you may be entitled to compensation from some combination of the designer, manufacturer, supplier or retailer.
