When you are injured by a product, investigation is necessary to determine who is at fault. There are three types of product issues which may cause a personal injury:
- Design defects: This refers to any problems created while designing or planning a certain product. For example, if a chair is designed in a way which makes it prone to falling over, it could be considered a design defect.
- Manufacturing errors: This refers to any defects due to problems created when a product is actually being made. Using our chair example, this would be something like a leg being improperly attached.
- False Advertising/Failure to Warn: This occurs when a seller or manufacturer fails to provide sufficient instructions or warnings about using the product, or when they fail to adequately communicate the potential risks of the product.
Because these three types of defects are associated with three different aspects of the production process, it is possible that there may be more than one party at fault in a personal injury claim. The designer, wholesaler, manufacturer, retailer, and advertiser, for example, could all potentially be liable for a defective product. At a minimum, a propoer investigation is needed to identify the proper parties.
It is important to find a lawyer who can help you determine who is at fault for your injuries. A product injury lawyer will research the product history and discover who is at fault and how you can receive compensation for the damages you incurred from the product.
