What You Need to Know: Three Types of Idaho Defective Product Lawsuits

If you think expecting to use a product without suffering injuries is too much to ask—you’re not alone. Unfortunately, consumers just like you get hurt everyday from using a product that happened to malfunction. The results of these malfunctions are often serious and require you to seek medical help. This can often result in thousands of dollars in medical bills. Going to court is an option, and three types of Idaho defective product lawsuits exist.

Product Liability Suit Based on Design Defect

  • A product liability suit addresses a design defect with the product. A design defect occurs when there is a flaw with the design of the product. Even though the product was created the way the manufacturer intended, it is inherently unsafe, meaning an error in the production didn’t cause a problem, the actual design did.

Product Liability Suit Based on a Manufacturing Defect

  • This type of lawsuit alleges that the product malfunctions because of a problem with the manufacturing. An entire batch of products could’ve been assembled incorrectly and have the problem, or just one single unit. In this type of lawsuit, the safety of the design of the product is not being challenged, rather, that the product become dangerous during manufacturing.

Failure to Warn

  • A lawsuit based on failure to warn occurs when the product manufacturer doesn’t include adequate instructions on how to use the product, or the foreseeable hazards that come along with using the product.
