Common Types of Product Liability Claims

Consumer products manufacturers have a legal responsibility when designing, manufacturing, and marketing their products so they are not defective or unreasonably dangerous when used by consumers.

Some of the more common product liability claims made by consumers who have sustained an injury due to a defective and unreasonably dangerous consumer product include the following:

  • Design Defects: There are products that are considered defective and hazardous due to the design of the product. These products have defects that cannot be fixed by means of manufacturing.
  • Manufacturing Defects: Some consumer products have a safe design but become dangerous or defective during the manufacturing process. An example is a medication that was made correctly but became contaminated in the manufacturing process, causing it to become unsafe.
  • Inadequate Warning or Failure to Warn: Some products are designed and manufactured in a safe manner but have a risk of injury to consumers if mishandled. These products could include medication, a medical device, or a power tool. The manufacturer has the legal responsibility to provide a clear, precise, and meaningful warning of the risk of using the product.
  • False Advertising or Marketing: This is when product manufacturers market their consumer product in a way that misleadingly or falsely advertises the benefits or downplays any risk of using the product.
