What are the three types of product defects?
We are surrounded by consumer products that we trust to be safe and defect-free. However, sometimes manufacturers fail in their responsibility to keep us safe and free from harm. There are three types of product defects that can lead to injury:
- Design flaws – a design flaw will affect a whole line of products because it goes back to the original plan for the item. This means that a product is defective before it is even produced.
- Manufacturing defects – these occur during the actual production process. Sometimes, only a few products may be affected.
- Misleading labels – when the marketing team fails to properly warn you of dangerous ingredients or safety hazards, as well as harmful chemicals, this can cause injury.
Defective consumer products can lead to injury to you or someone you know. When this happens, you may be able to prove that the manufacturer is liable for your injuries, which can help you gain financial compensation to help you heal.
