What Type of Case Do You Have?
To develop a strategy to use when presenting your case, you need to understand the categories that make up product liability in Las Vegas. As you read through each of these types of product defect, remember that you have the responsibility to not only prove that the product was defective, but show that the defect caused the injury for which you are suing.
- Defectively Manufactured Products — This is perhaps the most common type of product liability claim. It involves injuries caused by products that were defectively manufactured. A defective product is often caused by an error in the production process at the factory, such as a poisonous set of cough syrup.
- Defectively Designed Products — In this type of product liability case, the design of the product or make of goods was defective or inherently dangerous to consumers, even though the product was manufactured exactly to specifications. This type of case may be a cargo van that flips over while turning a corner, or a line of electric blankets that catch on fire.
- Failure to Provide Instructions or Warnings — This product liability claim is due to a lack of sufficient warnings or instructions about the proper use of a product. This claim usually involves a product that presents danger in a way that the user doesn’t notice, or the user must exercise diligence or take special precautions when using it. An example is an over-the-counter medication that doesn’t have a warning label stating that the user will experience side effects when combined with another drug.
