Product Liability Claims
So, how can you tell if you have a case? A product liability claim may be the solution when a product falls into one of the following categories:
Products with Marketing Defects
These products have been advertised in a misleading or false way. Claims like these are usually filed against pharmaceutical companies who advertise that a drug or product is safe when in reality, they are aware it isn’t.
Products That Are Defectively Manufactured
These products have a problem in their individualized manufacturing, making their errors unique. If you file a claim based on a product being defectively manufactured, evidence must be shown that there was a defect and that it caused injuries not due to personal misuse.
Products That Are Defectively Designed
These products have been designed in an unsafe or faulty way. In these cases, the entire line of products is defective or dangerous due to problems in the product’s engineering.
Products with Failure to Warn or Instruct
These products generally neglect to provide adequate information, warnings, instructions or any otherwise necessary information about the product. If it’s the general thought that a product should behave a certain way, the manufacturer has a responsibility to notify the customer that it does not, for safety reasons.
