Any manufacturer, designer, distributor, or others responsible for a product entering the market are responsible for said product’s safety. However, defective products still enter the market regularly. Some common product defects that result in product liability claims include the following:
There can be many possible parties responsible in a product liability claim. There are four main elements that can put the fault on a manufacturer, designer, distributor, or administrator of a defect product. The first is injury caused by a manufacturing defect. For example, a manufacturing defect can cause a seat belt to wear prematurely or release during an accident.
The second element involves faulty or ill-advised design choices leading to injury. For example, if a roof collapse in a vehicle because the designer produces a poorly design roof pillar system. Improper labeling is another element that can lead to a product liability case. For example, an advertised medication that fails to communicate proper dosage and possible side effects could lead to illness or injury. A product liability claim can also arise from a breach of a product’s warranty.
