Who is Responsible?
In order to establish liability in a product liability case, the injured person must prove that the product which caused the injury was both defective and unreasonably dangerous when compared to other similar products available in the marketplace.
An alternative doctrine for recovery in the Latin term “res ipsa loquitur,” which translates to “the thing speaks for itself” in Latin. This means that the event would not have happened if the product was not inherently dangerous, to begin with.
The three types of defects are the following:
- Design defects – Something in the product design is flawed before manufacturing
- Manufacturing defects – The defect occurred sometime and somewhere in the manufacturing or assembly process
- Marketing defects – The way the product was marketed contained flaws, including improper safety warnings, inadequate labeling and insufficient instructions
