When consumers purchase a product of any kind, they do so based on the assumption that the product is safe to use. There can be a number of reasons why a product is defective or results in physical harm. One such reason is due to a manufacturing defect. Manufacturing defects occur during the manufacturing of a product and can result even when product design, materials selection and quality assurance guidelines are all handled well. In fact, a manufacturing defect is defined as occurring when “the product departs from its intended design even though all possible care was exercised in the preparation and marketing of the product.”
Manufacturing Defect Lawyers Claims
Although manufacturing defects don’t occur often, they are covered by a legal principle known as strict liability. This means that the manufacturer has to pay for any injuries occurring due to the use of their product if it contains a manufacturing defect. Unfortunately, this can be difficult to prove, especially in cases in which the product was damaged or destroyed during the accident.
A legal doctrine known as the “malfunction doctrine” can be helpful in these types of cases, however. This doctrine states that “if the circumstances of an accident indicate that a defect caused the accident, and the plaintiff can produce evidence that removes other possible causes, then the plaintiff can prove causation even if the product is damaged or destroyed.”
