Product Design Flaws

When a person suffers an injury as a result of using a consumer product, sometimes it is the product manufacturer’s fault. In some cases, an individual may have inadvertently purchased a “lemon”, or one faulty product in an otherwise normal batch of a particular item. In other cases, though, the design of the product may be so flawed that the item is inherently dangerous.

Injuries resulting from product design flaws are usually the manufacturer’s liability. If you or someone you love suffered harm from using a defective product, contact the Sheboygan product defects lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at (920) 459-8000 for a free case evaluation.

The Dangers of Design Flaws

In product liability cases, there are three main types of product defects. The product may have a manufacturing flaw, which is an isolated problem, or it may have a marketing defect, which is typically a problem of mislabeling. Design defects, on the other hand, are more widespread.

A design defect means that the way a product was designed makes it unsafe for use by consumers. An example of this is an electrical problem in which a product is wired in a way that makes it likely to shock an unsuspecting user.
