FAQs.

Yes, some products are inherently dangerous based on their design and way they were manufactured.  One type of product liability case is geared toward products with a defective or dangerous design. This means the design of the product, without any other factors, was inherently dangerous or defective. However, when being used in accordance with design specifications, the product will be dangerous to the consumer despite being properly manufactured. In such a case, the designer of the product would be liable for resulting injuries, and not necessarily the manufacturer (if they are different entities).

Defective manufacturing occurs when there is some sort of error or negligence in the manufacturing process that results in design specifications not being met. Defective manufacturing could be a result of subpar quality standards, machine malfunctions or factory contamination.

A failure to provide warning or instruction is another common type of product liability. Failure to warn cases arise frequently in situations where products are used in a manner that the manufacturer knows will cause harm but the consumer does not.  That unequal level of knowledge is why liability attaches.  In those incidents, the injury could have been prevented with appropriate instructions or warnings from the manufacturer.
