What are the different kinds of defective product liability claims?

Product liability claims are filed when someone is injured because of a product. Claims typically fall into three categories including:

  • Defective manufacture: occurs when a product is flawed because of some error in making it. That single product is different than other products like it.
  • Defective design: occurs when a product’s design is inherently dangerous or defective. All products designed and made by that manufacturer feature the same risk.
  • Failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions concerning the proper use of the product occurs when the manufacturer fails to provide adequate warnings or instructions about the product’s proper use.
