- Defective Designs. These defects involve flaws in the design that make the product unreasonably dangerous to consumers. The defects are not the result of negligence or errors in the manufacturing process, but rather because the item’s design is inherently dangerous.
- Manufacturing Errors. Many products are defective because of errors that occurred during manufacturing, and in some cases one batch is dangerous while another is perfectly manufactured. These defects are usually the result of negligence on the part of the manufacturer.
- Defective Marketing. Even if a product is manufactured correctly, consumers can be harmed by marketing defects. Marketing defects include the failure to warn consumers of potential hazards of using the product, improper labeling, insufficient instructions, and intentional misrepresentation of the product.
