Consumer and commercial products may be defective or unreasonably dangerous for three different reasons. First, the design of the product itself may be flawed. One well-known example of this was the Ford Pinto in the 1970s, but even today — as we’ve seen in too many SUV rollover cases — design flaws continue to plague the auto industry.
The second reason is a manufacturing flaw. Most often, these cases involve manufacturers trying to save money by using lower-quality materials in the manufacturing process. Examples of this have most recently been seen in tire defect and defective medical device litigation.
The third basis for a defective product claim is an information defect. These kinds of cases usually involve products that can be dangerous if not used correctly (pharmaceutical drugs are a good example). Here, manufacturers have a duty to provide proper instructions or warnings for people who will use the product.
