Under product liability law, product defects are divided into three basic categories:
Design defects are inherent in the product, as the flaw or flaws reside in the actual design of the product. In cases involving design defects, it is likely that most or all of the products manufactured according to the designer's specifications have the same defect.
Manufacturing defects result when, during the fabrication of a product, the designer's specifications are not followed. In these product liability claims, the doctrine of strict liability comes into play. This means that it is unnecessary to demonstrate that a specific act of negligence was responsible for an injury; rather, the existence of the defect is evidence enough of negligence.
Marketing defects occur at the point at which a product is made publicly available to consumers. Product liability claims may be based on such marketing defects as improper labeling, incorrect or insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings. When such flaws cause the product to be unsafe for its intended use, the party or parties responsible for the defect may be held liable for any injuries that result.
At The Young Firm, we have been representing catastrophic injury victims for more than 40 years. For a consultation with an experienced product liability lawyer, contact the defective product attorneys at our New Orleans, Louisiana office. We are committed to helping our clients achieve justice.
As a consumer, you have rights. If you have been harmed by a defective product, you have the right to seek compensatory damages for your injuries. Manufacturers, designers, distributors, or any other party that can be directly connected to a product defect may be held liable for any injuries resulting from its use. The product liability attorneys at The Young Firm have handled claims involving dangerous pharmaceuticals, automotive defects, children's toys, and more.
Our product liability lawyers are able to recover compensatory damages on behalf of their clients. These damages include medical bills, lost wages, and/or property damage incurred because of the defective product.
