Common Product Liability Lawsuits
Many consumer products are already on safety recall lists or are involved in product liability lawsuits. A product liability lawsuit results when a consumer product injures someone using it for its intended purpose. Misuse of a product that leads to an injury is not grounds for a product liability lawsuit.
Common product liability lawsuits include:
- Automotive acceleration systems, airbags, brakes, fuel tanks, ignition systems, seat belts, and steering devices
- Children’s beds, car seats, crayons, cribs, nursery products, pajamas, strollers, toys, and toy chests
- Construction ladders, scaffolding, power tools, asbestos-containing materials, stucco siding, stairways, and decks
- Household stoves, ranges, ovens, furniture, carpet, lamps, fire alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, lawnmowers, ladders, power tools, grills, and space heaters
- Artificial hips, knee implants, surgical or transvaginal mesh
- Defective medical devices such as shoulder pain pumps
- Birth control devices
- Sports and recreation products
Types of Product Liability
There are three different types of product liability. These are a failure to warn, a product defect, and a manufacturing defect. It is possible to fall under more than one category.
- A failure to warn occurs when a manufacturer does not provide instructions for the safe use of their product
- A product defect means a product’s design is flawed or inherently dangerous
- A manufacturing defect happens when a product’s design is safe, but the product is built with defects
When large numbers of consumers suffer injuries due to a product, manufacturers sometimes need to recall a product. To benefit from a product liability claim, the following needs to apply:
- A product is used for its intended purpose
- This use caused an injury
- The injury resulted in significant harm
- The product is unaltered between the time of purchase and use
