Defective Product in Personal Injury Law

In personal injury law, a defective product refers to a product that is unreasonably dangerous or defective in its design, manufacturing, or labeling, and causes harm or injury to a consumer. When a person is injured due to a defective product, they may have grounds for a product liability claim.

Product liability laws vary by jurisdiction, but generally, there are three main types of defects that can lead to a product liability claim:

1. Design Defects: These occur when a product's design is inherently dangerous or flawed, making it unsafe for its intended use.

2. Manufacturing Defects: These defects happen during the manufacturing process and result in a product that deviates from its intended design, making it dangerous or defective.

3. Marketing Defects: These defects involve inadequate warnings, instructions, or labeling on a product, failing to provide consumers with sufficient information about potential risks or proper usage.

To pursue a product liability claim, it is important to gather evidence such as the defective product itself, medical records, proof of purchase, and any documentation related to the incident. Consulting with a personal injury attorney who specializes in product liability cases is crucial, as they can assess the strength of your claim, navigate the legal process, and help you seek compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages caused by the defective product.
