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.
At Lowe Law Group, we know it’s wrong for companies to dodge liability
after selling a dangerous product. It is our passion to take them on for
our clients. If you or a family member were hurt while using a defective
product, then our Sioux Falls product liability lawyers would like to
hear from you, so we can tell you how we can help.
