There are three categories by which a product can be deemed to be unreasonably dangerous; (1) a manufacturing defect leads to a defective condition in a single product purchased by a consumer, (2) a defect in the design of a product causes an entire product line being to be deemed dangerous or (3) a product has been sold to the public without containing adequate warnings. An experienced attorney will be able to identify whether you have a viable case and can begin gathering evidence to support your claim.

If you or a loved one were injured due to a manufacturing flaw in a product, you could bring forward a claim stating that the product was not manufactured properly. This flaw resulted in a dangerous condition that made the product defective and dangerous, and caused injury or death.

In an injury or death resulting from the defective design of a product, an injured party could make a claim that the product functioned as it was designed but the design was negligent. That is, a reasonable manufacturer should have known that the design of the product was defective and that it was foreseeable that the design could cause injury or death to the user of the product.

Once a hazard—the condition that may cause injury or death—is identified in a product, the design engineer must follow an accepted design priority recognized by all design engineers in order to reduce the possibility of the dangerous condition of the product causing injury or death. During this procedure, the dangerous condition must be designed out of the product if such can be done without destroying the utility of the product. If this can’t be done, the dangerous condition of the product must be guarded against.

In the event that proper guarding is not practical, a warning must be given that the dangerous condition of the product can cause injury or death. An experienced attorney will be able to identify whether you have a viable case and can begin gathering evidence to support your claim.

Lastly, in a failure to warn case, the manufacturer of a product that can prove to be dangerous to the consumer when used as intended is obligated to provide proper warning. This includes warning of any danger known to him or which, in the use of reasonable care, he should have known but the user of the product would have not ordinarily discovered.

In the United States, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection claims. The majority of product liability laws are determined at the state level and vary widely from state to state. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements to be proven to present a successful claim. This is why you need representation from an experienced lawyer to help you recover the damages you’ve suffered due to a defective product. An experienced attorney will be able to identify whether you have a viable case and can begin gathering evidence to support your claim.
