Filing A Product Liability Claim

The designers, manufacturers, distributors and sellers of products all have a responsibility to not knowingly produce or sell items that are defective or that can cause harm. Whether this product is a firearm, car, power tool or food product, it is the same responsibility.

If you have been seriously harmed by a defective product, bad food or medication, contact the experienced product liability lawyers at Chris Pettit & Associates, P.C. We have over four decades of personal injury experience and can help. There is no charge for your visit. You pay nothing unless we take your case and win.

The Three Types Of Product Defects

There are three basic types of product defects. They are:

  1. Manufacturing defects
  2. Design defects
  3. Marketing defects

A manufacturing defect is an error in the way a product was constructed. This type of defect includes tires that fail to perform as the rest of the brand, car locks that do not work, cribs, playpens or car seats that do not work as they should and moldy food.

A design defect is an error in the product design. The focus is on the design, not an accident. This type of defect can include any dangerous product, unsafe toys, faulty car acceleration or brakes, a firearm with a faulty safety feature.

A marketing defect is an error in the communication of risk. Marketers must inform users of the risks involved in the use of a product. This is especially true with medications and supplements. It can also include a sharp product where there are no clear instructions on how to use it.
