What Considers a Defective Product?

A product is defective if it caused harm or injury to the user. It becomes defective when there’s a flaw in the design, error in the manufacturing process, or failure to provide necessary instructions or warning upon product usage.

Defects in the Design

This is already existent from the start, even before the product gets manufactured. A company is held liable for the defect in the design when a probable risk was present during manufacture. In this case, the company decides to continue manufacturing unsafe products.  

Defects in the Manufacturing Process

This product defect happens during the assembly or manufacturing process. The flaw could emanate from an inadvertent mistake, causing the product to become riskier than what the manufacturer and consumer anticipated.

Generally, manufacturer defects are simpler to fix by replacing the defective product with a new one. Examples of manufacturer defects are contaminated food products, faulty mechanisms, and defective tires, to name a few. However, when it already caused harm or injury, you need to talk to a prominent defective product attorney at the LA Injury Group to know how to file a case.

Proving Your Case

In California, there are two theories when it comes to defective products - negligence and strict liability. 


In terms of a lawsuit on the grounds of negligence,  you need to prove your case before getting compensation. Negligence means failing to act that caused a person or entity to breach its duties of care to consumers. It includes slackness in training procedures, safety guidelines, or manufacturing regulations. At this point, it’s necessary to have a reliable defective product attorney at the LA Injury Group by your side to help prove negligence. 

Strict Liability

In the case of a defective product claim, you don’t need to prove the manufacturer’s negligence. Instead, you need to prove the product’s defectiveness, which caused you harm and injury. Or, you could also establish that the manufacturer neglect to provide enough warning or instructions of possible risks in using the product. 

It’s commonly known as “strict liability,” wherein the victim has the legal right to file a case whatever is the manufacturer’s intent.

However, it’s not always that the manufacturer takes the blame. An example scenario is when a driver met an accident because of a defective tire. If the driver is drunk, the blame is on him and not on the manufacturer.
