Palm Springs Defective Products Attorneys
Defective products are any products that are sold with inherent defects and that may cause aninjury to consumers. When people are injured by a defective product, they have the right to take legal action by filing a personal injury or product liability claim. Product liability is a niche area of law that governs the responsibility of designers, manufacturers and marketers to ensure that all products are safe for consumers to use.
Usually, consumers are injured by retail products. However, product liability refers to any item that is sold to consumers. For instance, a person may file a product liability lawsuit if he/she was injured by a poorly installed garage door just as a consumer may file a lawsuit after his/her child was injured by a defective toy.
Different Types of Product Defects
Under product liability law, defects are attributed to designers, manufacturers or marketers. In cases involving design defects, products will usually have inherent flaws which make them very dangerous to use. If a product has manufacturing defects, usually something will have gone wrong during the manufacturing process and make the product dangerous and/or defective. When a product has marketing defects, it may have poorly written instructions or fail to warn consumers of dangers associated with the product. For example, if the product is should not be ingested by consumers and its labeling does not provide sufficient warnings, it is a marketing defect that makes the product unsafe.
