In legal terms, product liability is defined as the liability that a manufacturer or trader has when they either produce or sell a product that is ultimately deemed faulty. Many people don’t realize that this goes far beyond a product that doesn’t work in the way that it was intended – there are actually three major types of product liability situations that a consumer might find themselves in depending on the circumstances.

The Three Types of Product Liability Accidents
Generally speaking, product liability lawsuits fall under one of three major categories depending on the exact type of situation you’re talking about. These include:
- Design Defects. Design defects often occur during the conception phase of a particular product where certain issues render it either useless or dangerous. These defects would be present in the finished product no matter what, regardless of how well the product was constructed.
- Manufacturing Defects. Manufacturing defects are the types of dangerous conditions that occur during the actual manufacturing process and typically involve either shoddy workmanship, the use of low-quality materials or a combination of both at the same time.
- Marketing Defects. Also commonly referred to as “failure to warn” defects, marketing defects are present in those products that carry certain “non-obvious” dangerous which could easily be mitigated through proper warnings on the packaging or on the product itself. These dangers are not only present regardless of how well the product is manufactured, but are actually caused by the intended use of the product itself.
