Types of Defective Product Liability Claims

If you have been hurt due to a defective product, you may have a defective product liability lawsuit. Whether because of poor manufacturing, poor marketing including improper labels or inadequate instructions, or due to defective design, product liability can lead to injury. Every state has a different set of laws that must be followed when pursuing a product liability lawsuit.

Poorly-Manufactured Products

When a product is made poorly, it can lead to injury. Some examples include a cough syrup with the wrong ingredient or a swing set with a cracked chain on it.

Poorly-Designed Products

A product’s design can be defective or dangerous too. For example, if a pair of sunglasses fail to protect you from UV rays or an electric blanket electrocutes someone when it is turned on high. The injury must be caused by poor design.

Poor Labels or Instructions

If a product doesn’t provide proper instructions, you may have a lawsuit too. Some examples may be if a tea kettle doesn’t warn of a steam valve in a particular place or if a cough syrup doesn’t list dangerous side effects when taken with a medicine such as aspirin.

All of these things can be used when trying to prove liability in a product liability or defective product lawsuit in Oregon. A professional defective product lawyer has the experience, skills, and resources needed to make a strong case for their injured victim clients.
