When a dangerous or defective product or device causes you harm, the manufacturer should take responsibility.

What Type of Dangerous and Defective Products Fall Under Product Liability

There are many reasons why a product can be dangerous or defective. The design can be faulty, the manufacturer may have cut corners during production, or it might have failed to test the product properly before launch. No matter why a product is defective, consumers have a right to hold manufacturers liable for the harm they’ve suffered.

Any product can be the basis for a product liability case if it results in serious injury, including:

  • Medical devices;
  • Dangerous drugs and pharmaceuticals;
  • Toys;
  • Automotive parts;
  • Clothing;
  • Playground equipment; and/or
  • Tools and construction equipment.

Proving Product Liability in Vancouver

Product liability laws require that all injured consumers show the following elements when trying to win a liability case:

  1. You suffered injury or losses;
  2. The product contained a defect;
  3. The defect caused your injury; and
  4. You used the product “as intended”.

In general, there are three main types of product defects: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects.

Manufacturing Defects

Manufacturing defects occur when a product is damaged during the construction or production of that item. In these cases, not all items are defective, just the one you used. Your attorney will need to show that the product you used contained a defect that led to your injury.

Design Defects

Design defects are a bit harder to establish. These defects exist before the product is produced, meaning that all products will contain this defect. A common example is a defective airbag design.

Marketing Defect

When a company markets a product, they must do so responsibly. Failure to warn of a hazard is one way that manufacturers can be held accountable for their faulty products. Failure to provide adequate warnings can lead to serious injury.
