- Defective design. This means there was an error in the planning stages of this product before it was ever made, and the people who designed it would be responsible. They may have made a miscalculation or completely overlooked something critical that led to the product becoming dangerous to consumers.
- Defective manufacturing. If a product was defectively manufactured, this means the defect occurred when it was being physically created. There may have been a machine malfunction, or it could have been the result of human error.
- Failure to warn or give instructions. Some products—such as medication or complex machinery—require additional instructions for proper use. If a company does not provide you with additional instructions or materials to understand how to use a product safely, it can be at fault.
If you have a feeling you know where the defect may have occurred, be sure to share that with your attorney. If not, don’t worry—your lawyer will have the experience and training to get to the bottom of things for you.
