What Is a Defective Product?

A defective product is any consumer product that causes injury to a person because of marketing, design or manufacturing defects. Some of these products include:
  • Auto parts, including air bags, seat belts, infant car seats and tires
  • Clothing
  • Electronics
  • Household goods or appliances
  • Motor vehicles
  • Dangerous medicines or prescription drugs
  • Farming equipment
  • Recreational equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Machinery
  • Toys
Marketing defects include deficiencies in the way a product was labeled, insufficient product instructions or inadequate safety warnings. Defective design means that a product was inherently unsafe even before it was built and that every one of those products will continue to be unsafe after they are manufactured. Manufacturer defects result from some aberration in the manufacturing process and may not affect all products.

Product Liability

The law that governs defective products in “product liability.” The law protects consumers and holds the responsible companies liable for damages. Because the liable party can be the product designer, manufacturer, distributor, seller or any combination thereof, it requires extensive research to determine fault in product liability cases.
