Types Of Product Liability Lawsuits
If you’re running a product-based business in Texas, you already know that customer feedback is very important – especially in the age of online reviews and social media. One negative review can completely destroy your business. Bloggers and social media influencers have the power to bring your entire product line to its knees. But what happens if a disgruntled customer takes things one step further and actually sues you for your allegedly deficient products?
In that situation, you need to get in touch with a qualified, experienced product liability defense attorney as soon as possible. These legal professionals can defend your company against baseless and frivolous lawsuits, allowing you to proceed with your business in the best way possible. With a team of defense lawyers at your side, you can deal with this difficult situation efficiently and confidently.
The first type of product liability lawsuit revolves not around the product itself, but rather the manner in which it was marketed or advertised. The plaintiff will argue that the product was marketed in a way that led to their injury. They may argue that the advertisements showed the product being used in an unsafe manner, prompting them to use the product in the same way, which then resulted in injury. In other situations, they may argue that the product was shown being used in a way that it was never designed for. Again, they will argue that when they tried to use the product for the same applications, it led to their injury.
The second type of product liability lawsuit revolves around manufacturing defects. In other words, some element of the manufacturing process made the product dangerous. For example, let’s say you have a company that manufactures and sells power drills. The plaintiff may argue that your power drill factory has a slight defect that results in 1 out of every 100 power drills having defective wiring. They also might argue that this defective wiring resulted in an electric shock.
The last type of product liability lawsuit revolves around design defects. These types of defects occur before the product is ever manufactured or marketed. Instead, the flaw lies in the very concept of the product, and the mistake is made “on the drawing board.” For example, a bicycle might have a design flaw that makes the entire bike fall apart when exposed to freezing temperatures. This might have something to do with the way the nuts and bolts have been designed, for example.
