Manufacturer Defect Examples

Breaking down every step of the Product Liability Process

What constitutes a manufacturer defect of a product?

A manufacturer defect of a product is when the product is defective from the manufacturer. This can be because the product was not made correctly or because it was not tested. A product is considered defective if it does not perform as expected, or if it does not meet specifications. Products may also be considered defective if they are unsafe. Products may also be considered defective if they are unsafe.

For a consumer to have a valid claim, the product defect must be substantial in nature. What constitutes a “substantial” defect is difficult to define but the following factors will be taken into consideration:

  • The nature and severity of the defect
  • The number of defects in a product
  • Whether the product was misrepresented or inadequately advertised
  • The number of people who have been injured by the product

Filing a product liability lawsuit

Did you know that product liability cases have the second-highest median damage compensation of all personal injury cases? Product liability lawsuits often involve one or more parties who are injured, or owe money to someone who is injured. The plaintiff is the person who brings the lawsuit against the defendant, which can be the manufacturer of the product or the wholesaler of the product. The defendant may be a company selling a product that was defective and caused injuries, a company that sold an unapproved product, or a company that manufactured a defective product. Product liability lawsuits are typically brought in state courts, but federal courts are sometimes used. Product liability lawsuits can be filed by individuals and by groups of individuals.
