Texas recognizing three types of product defects under product liability laws. The three steps of production in which error can occur and cause an item to become defective include:
- Defect in Design
Errors that occur in the stages of development and design of the product can make for a defective product. If one product is defective due to design, then the rest of the products made with the same faulty design are likely defective.
- Defect in Manufacturing
These products do not have a flaw in their design, rather they have had an error in the execution of the design. This step occurs in the manufacturing stage. Manufacturing defects are usually found in only a small percentage of the product. A manufacturer is liable for defects that take place because of faulty assembly, even if the manufacturer was careful during production.
- Defect in Marketing or a Failure to Disclose Information
If a manufacturer is aware of potential risks, but fails to warn the general public about the dangers of their product, a product liability lawsuit can be brought against them. An individual may also suffer an injury if the product’s instructions are unclear and fail to inform of hazards caused by misusing the product.
