What are the Different Types of Product Defects?
A Defective Product is when a manufacturer makes the product available to the general public with defects and these defects cause an injury.
The different kinds of defective product cases include:
- Design defects – when a manufacturer fails to address certain safety precautions and there are problems inherent in the product’s design
- Manufacturing defects – negligence of safety protocol or parts that are not properly installed may result in the breakdown of the product. This may also include tainted food.
- Marketing defects – improper labeling or not issuing appropriate warnings about products that may be dangerous to the consumer. This may also include neglecting to include warnings in an instruction manual or guide.
Defective product lawyers have the technical and scientific expertise needed to help you file the right claims, conduct necessary research about manufacturers and companies, and build a solid case against the offending party.
Warranties and the Defective Product
If there are warranties involved with your situation, you may be eligible for additional compensation. A warranty is a guarantee on the product you purchased and may be an ‘implied’ product warranty or an ‘express’ product warranty.
An implied warranty is one that is not written or spoken but does guarantee that the product will be function as it is supposed to function. For example, if you purchased a cell phone from a phone dealer, you expect the speakers to work without the dealer explaining that they will work because the speakers are a necessary component of all cell phones.
An express warranty is one that makes a statement about the fact of the product, provides a description of the product, or one in which the buyer has been shown a demo or model of the product before purchasing a replica of the item.
It’s important to understand that if there are any disclaimers involved, you may not have a case. A disclaimer is any statement made by the dealer that specifies any defects or potential problems with the product. If you purchased a product and experienced a problem even with the disclaimer, you may not be entitled to compensation from any injuries sustained.
