Products liability laws define the legal responsibility of sellers and other commercial suppliers of products for damages resulting from product defects and misrepresentations about a product’s safety or performance capabilities. The three types of product liability defects are:
• Design defects
• Manufacturing defects
• Warning defects
Manufacturing defects are defined as production flaws a manufacturer does not intend. Design defects are defined as undue risks that a safety device or other design alternative reasonably would prevent the harm. Warning defects occur when a manufacturer of a product fails to include sufficient warnings for the product. A product is defective if the manufacturer fails to provide adequate information about its hidden dangers (warnings) and, if not evident, how to avoid them (instructions). If a hazard is substantial, the law may require that the warning be placed directly on the product rather than in product literature that may become separated from the product.
Common defective products are:
· Car seats
· Automotive defects
· Household appliances such as humidifiers and heaters
· Riding lawn mowers
· Golf carts
· Household power tools
