What is a product liability lawsuit?
You use tons of products every single day. It is up to the creators of those many products to ensure that they are putting out a product designed to be as safe as possible when used correctly.
When a product injures its user despite the user using the product correctly, that product may be found to be dangerous or defective. If a dangerous or defective product leads to injury or harm for its user, they may have grounds for filing a product liability lawsuit or product liability claim, stating that the makers of the product, because of their own negligence, owe damages.
How do you know if you have a case? The civil suit lawyers in Fort Worth, TX of Westfall Sellers are here to explain.
Common types of product liability lawsuits
Although product liability cases can come from almost any product, the most common forms of product liability claims include:
- Dangerous drugs claims
- Medical device claims
- Vehicle defects and auto part defect claims
- Equipment and machinery defect claims
- Toys and children’s items claims
- Household product claims
The complexity of defective product claims is largely due to the fact that different types of claims have different bodies regulating their products; dangerous drugs and medical devices are regulated by the FDA, while the NHTSA regulates the safety of vehicles, for example.
Common defects in product liability claims
There are a number of ways in which a product might malfunction, but malfunctions are commonly categorized under three categories.
- Design defects include defects that are not mistakes in manufacturing or use, but are inherent to the product because of a fault in its design. A defectively designed product that results in an unnecessary risk of harm is not uncommon in household products like power tools and other household appliances.
- Manufacturing defects occur when a mistake is made during the manufacturing or assembly process. Manufacturing defects often result in massive recalls and are often responsible for the contamination of consumable products, and sterilization errors in drugs and medical devices.
Failure to warn, also known as marketing defects, is commonly referenced with products whose use is associated with a non-negligible amount of risk. Not all products are going to be 100% safe but should be when they are used correctly. Products with inherent danger come with instructions and warnings to ensure that the user can use them properly and safely. If a product doesn’t have warnings and instructions that allow the user to use them safely, this is called a warning defect.
How do you win a product liability lawsuit?

Although big firm litigators might seem like the easy way to go when looking for a product liability lawyer, they rarely have the trial experience necessary to win a case in court.
