What are some of the types of product defect?

There are several types of flaws that make a product defective

  • Manufacturing defect – Where the product was designed properly, but the defect came about through the manufacturing process.
  • Design defect – Where the product was essentially flawed because of its design.
  • Failure to Warn – Where a product, although otherwise safe, causes an injury due to the manufacturer’s failure to warn of a particular danger associated with the use of the product that was known or reasonably knowable to the manufacturer.
