A Product Can Be Defective In Any Of Three Possible Ways

Defective Design

An inherent flaw in the design of the product creates the defect; thereby affecting all of the units produced using that design.

Defective Production

A flaw in the manufacturing or assembly process caused the defect, potentially only affecting certain units or production lots.

Defective Marketing

The manufacturer did not include adequate safety warnings, instructions for use, or did not accurately represent the product in advertisements and marketing materials.

The plaintiff will also need to provide evidence that proves the extent of his or her damages. This can include medical reports from the claimant’s physician, invoices for medical treatment, records proving lost wages, and any other documentation that establishes a link between the defendant’s defective product and the plaintiff’s losses.

If you are unsure about the strength of your case, an experienced product liability attorney can help assess the facts of your case and let you know your chances of succeeding with a defective product claim. Your attorney should help you gather the evidence necessary to prove the extent of your damages and ensure your complaint meets the applicable statute of limitations.
