Causes of Product Liability
Design Defects: A design defect occurs when a flaw or error exists in the initial design of a product, making it inherently unsafe or prone to causing harm. This could involve issues such as inadequate safety features, improper structural integrity, or failure to consider potential risks during the design phase.

Manufacturing Defects: Manufacturing defects occur during the production or assembly process of a product. These defects can result in individual units or batches of products being faulty or deviating from the intended design specifications. Examples include errors in assembly, improper use of materials, or contamination during production.

Inadequate Instructions or Warnings: Products should come with clear and comprehensive instructions for safe use. If the instructions are unclear, incomplete, or fail to address potential risks associated with the product’s use, it can lead to accidents and injuries. Additionally, products that do not include proper warnings about potential hazards or risks can expose users to unnecessary dangers.

Failure to Perform Testing and Quality Control: Manufacturers have a responsibility to conduct thorough testing and quality control measures to ensure that their products meet safety standards. Failure to perform adequate testing or implement quality control processes can result in the release of defective products into the market, posing risks to consumers.

Marketing Misrepresentation: Misleading or false advertising can contribute to product liability cases. If a manufacturer provides inaccurate or misleading information about a product’s capabilities, safety features, or potential risks, consumers may use the product in a way that puts them at greater risk of harm.

Breach of Warranty: When a product is sold with a warranty, whether it’s an express or implied warranty, the manufacturer or seller is responsible for ensuring that the product meets certain standards of quality and safety. If the product fails to meet those standards or the warranty is not fulfilled, it can lead to product liability claims.

Recalls and Failure to Address Known Risks: If a manufacturer becomes aware of a defect or potential danger associated with their product, they have a legal obligation to promptly address the issue and take appropriate action, such as issuing a recall or providing necessary repairs or replacements. Failure to do so can result in liability if harm occurs as a result of the known defect.

Resulting Injuries
Burns and Scalds: Defective products, such as malfunctioning appliances, faulty electronics, or flammable materials, can cause burns and scalds. These injuries can range from mild to severe, resulting in pain, disfigurement, scarring, and long-term physical and emotional trauma.

Fractures and Bone Injuries: Defective products can lead to accidents that cause fractures and broken bones. For example, faulty ladders, collapsing furniture, or defective sports equipment can result in bone fractures, requiring medical intervention, rehabilitation, and potential surgical procedures.

Cuts, Lacerations, and Puncture Wounds: Products with sharp edges, faulty blades, or inadequate safety mechanisms can cause severe cuts, lacerations, and puncture wounds. These injuries may require stitches, sutures, or even reconstructive surgery, and can leave permanent scars.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): Defective products, such as faulty helmets, defective car seats, or malfunctioning safety devices, can fail to protect the head adequately, resulting in traumatic brain injuries. TBIs can range from concussions to severe brain damage, leading to cognitive impairments, motor dysfunction, and long-term disabilities.

Spinal Cord Injuries: Products that are poorly designed or lack appropriate safety features can lead to accidents resulting in spinal cord injuries. These injuries can cause partial or complete paralysis, loss of sensation, and lifelong challenges in mobility and daily functioning.

Electric Shocks and Electrocution: Defective electrical appliances, faulty wiring, or malfunctioning electronic devices can expose users to the risk of electric shocks and electrocution. These injuries can cause severe burns, nerve damage, cardiac arrest, and even fatalities.

Internal Injuries and Organ Damage: Some defective products, such as faulty medical devices or malfunctioning automotive parts, can lead to internal injuries and organ damage. These injuries may require surgical intervention, extensive medical treatment, and ongoing care to address the physical and physiological impact.

Respiratory Issues and Chemical Exposure: Defective products, such as contaminated consumer goods, hazardous materials, or toxic substances, can lead to respiratory problems and chemical exposure. Inhalation of harmful fumes, toxic gases, or exposure to dangerous chemicals can result in respiratory distress, lung damage, and long-term health complications.

Psychological and Emotional Trauma: Injuries resulting from defective products can have a significant impact on an individual’s mental well-being. Traumatic incidents, disfigurement, or disabilities caused by product defects can lead to emotional distress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.
