Tampa Defective Product Attorney

When you buy a product for yourself or a loved one, you expect it to work the way that the manufacturer claims that it will. It almost always comes as a surprise when a product turns out to be defective and hurts the person using it, and sometimes these injuries can be severe. At our office, we hold the manufacturers accountable for their defective products and push to get our clients the compensation that they deserve for their injuries.

Types of Defective Products

Defective products are typically broken down into three distinct groups: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. Each type of defect is different, and the elements to prove that the product is defective also differ. Determining which type of defective product caused the accident also indicates who may be liable for the resulting injuries.

Design defects:

This type of claim arises when there is an inherent flaw in the overall design of the product. Instead of one product being put together incorrectly in a factory, every single product in the line is defective simply from the way that it was designed. A design defect can occur even if the product was made perfectly to the specifications of the designer. In this type of case, you must prove that the defect in the design was what led to or contributed to the injuries.

Manufacturing defects:

This type of claim arises when the product was manufactured defectively. It was either put together incorrectly in the factory or something that happened during the manufacturing process that caused the product to be defective. For this type of product liability claim, you must show that the defectively manufactured product caused or contributed to your injuries.

Marketing defects:

This type of defective product claim arises when there is a failure to place adequate warnings or instructions with a product. In this type of case, the failure to warn must be associated with common use of the product or related to something that is not obvious to the typical consumer.
