Products which cause harm or death are typically referred to as defective, unsafe or dangerous products. A defective, unsafe or dangerous product is a product which have the potential to cause harm due to design defects, manufacturing defects and defects in marketing. Liability issues are weighed in terms of whether manufacturer and consumer acted reasonably relating to the design, manufacturing, marketing, and use of the product.
Injuries and effects of injuries sustained due to a defective, unsafe or dangerous product may differ in the severity and conditions both physically and mentally. Defective products can be in many forms, from defective child car seat straps, poor tire design or manufacturing, mislabeled or dangerous medications, to a whole host of other products which have the potential to inflict harm.
Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to adequately protect consumers from defective products and when consumers are not warned that defective products are on the market the company is liable. Defective products can cause serious injuries or even an unnecessary death. Liability laws were created to better protect consumers from products that have design or manufacturer defects which may be harmful to the consumer.
