Generally, a product is labeled as defective if it falls into one of the following categories:
Design Defects: If the product wasn’t properly tested (or it was rushed to market), your injury may have been caused by a problem with the design. A design defect can be grounds for your personal injury case.
Manufacturing Defect: Sometimes, products are designed well, but the manufacturer drops the ball by incorrectly assembling the product or failing to maintain quality control. The parts manufacturer may have also caused the defect.
Failure to Warn: Many products are available on the open market that can be unsafe to operate by consumers who disregard the directions. It is the responsibility of the company to place warning labels on their products so that consumers can understand the risks involved with misusing the product.
