Types of Product Defects
New York companies must ensure that the products they sell to consumers are safe for their intended use. If you bring a product liability claim, your claim will usually be based on one or more of the following types of product defects:
A design defect is a problem that occurs at the inception of the product. The product is manufactured according to the design specifications, but there is some inherent issue that makes the product unsafe as it was designed. For example, a stuffed toy with glass marbles sold to children may pose a choking hazard to its intended market.
A manufacturing defect is a problem that occurs during the manufacturing process, which affects a certain number of products or batches. For example, a problem with a machine may cause it to use the wrong type of bolt for a product, which could become loose and fall off during use.
A warning or marketing defect occurs when there is a danger to using the product and this information is not properly shared with or communicated to consumers. Without a proper warning label, a product could be defective. For example, the product may fail to disclose that it contains toxic chemicals.
