When to File a Defective Product Lawsuit


When to File a Defective Product LawsuitIf you've suffered an injury due to defective product, then you may have grounds to file a successful lawsuit that brings significant compensation. Most people have heard about big ticket cases involving automotive defects. But there are also plenty of defective product cases that never make the evening news.

In some instances, it's not immediately apparent if there are sufficient grounds for a product liability lawsuit. If you have even the slightest inkling that your situation might have legal legs to stand on, then it's worth consulting a lawyer who specializes in such cases. Here's a look at three types of defective product lawsuits.

Failure to Issue Proper Warning

If the product did not include proper warning about a potential hazard and you suffered an injury as a result, then you may have grounds for a successful suit. In these cases, it's important that you were using the product as directed and that your injury was clearly due to the manufacturer's failure to warn you about a safety risk.

Defective Design

A defective design case typically involves a product that was manufactured to the intended specifications, but the flaw turns out to be in the design rather than the production. As a result of the design flaw, there is a safety hazard that leads to injury. In such a scenario, there are often many consumers filing suit because the whole product line is afflicted with the problem.

Manufacturing Defect

With a manufacturing defect, a particular error has been made in the production of an item. With manufacturing defect lawsuits, the flaw that caused the injury is often unique to a single product that was purchased. Typically, in these scenarios, the design was passable, but there was a big mistake somewhere on the assembly line.
