How a Product Can Become Defective
Product defects take many forms, which can make it difficult to identify them in some situations. Our Sioux Falls product liability lawyers have been working on defective product cases for years, so we have seen all sorts of relevant claims and lawsuits. We can also work with product experts and engineers to better understand a product’s malfunctions if the situation calls for it.
There are three common ways that products become defective, though:
- Design flaw: Some products are defective by design, which means they could never be safe for sale or use because the flaw is an inherent part of the product. For example, Takata airbags became notorious for exploding with deadly force. The airbags were designed to use an unstable chemical component in their inflators, so every single airbag based on this design was dangerous.
- Manufacturing error: A product or line of products can become defective because of a mistake during the manufacturing process. Manufacturing errors are difficult to catch because as few as one product could be affected by the mistake. For example, if you bought a ladder that was missing a hinge-pin and it collapsed when you first tried to climb it, then a manufacturing error would have caused your accident.
- Misinformation: Certain products can become defective or dangerous due to misinformation spread by their manufacturers. Instruction manuals, product packaging, safety warnings, and commercials are all ways that manufacturers can inadvertently or intentionally misinform consumers. For example, a prescription drug that does not include information about all of its side effects is defective by misinformation or marketing.
Bringing Claims Against Product Makers
Suing a product manufacturer after being hurt by a defective product or medicine is a huge task. Major corporations and Big Pharma are always ready to challenge claims and lawsuits filed against them. Even when it is clear that their products have caused serious harm to innocent consumers, they will do everything they can to distance themselves from any liability.
