4 Types of Product Defects that Lead to Liability Cases

A picture of a defective Teddy Bear.You put a lot of trust in companies. As a customer, you expect to buy a product that works as advertised. You also expect that the company made sure the product was safe before putting it in stores. Unfortunately, mistakes and negligence happen.

Sometimes mistakes and negligence result in innocent defects and the product only needs to be replaced or you get a refund. However, sometimes defective products can lead to serious harm to customers who purchase the products.

If you’ve been harmed in some way by a defective product, you may be able to receive financial compensation with a liability case. The following are four common types of defects that lead to product liability cases.

1) Automobile. This includes defective tires, rims, seatbelts, airbags, or any other component of a vehicle.

2) Defective work tools and equipment. These types of injuries often happen at workplaces in industries such as construction, manufacturing, warehousing, and more. Defective tools can include forklifts, power tools, and more.

3) Medical devices. These products are often recalled and include pacemakers, insulin pumps, knee replacements, hip replacements, and more.

4) Toys and other products for children. Defective toys include products that use lead paint, cause choking or strangulation, or any other faulty car seats, cribs, strollers, and more.
