Manufacturing defect claims in Tennessee
Manufacturing defects are a more common occurrence than they should be. These products liability claims arise when there is an error on the production line or the item is poorly constructed. To be awarded compensation in manufacturing defect claims, your products liability attorney must prove that the defect happened before the item left the factory where it was produced.
Design defect claims in Tennessee
Flaws in the original blueprint of a product, causing it to be unreasonably dangerous or cheaply designed are examples of design defects. In these products liability claims, your attorney must prove that the designer knew about or should have anticipated serious injury resulting from the use of their product, or that the product was unreasonably dangerous to begin with.
An important question we ask ourselves before filing a design defect claim is could the item have been constructed differently to prevent injury? More often than not, the answer is yes. All too often, companies try to save a few dollars at the expense of consumers.
Failure to warn
It is quite amazing what a simple warning label can do to prevent injury and save lives. When a company fails to provide proper warning labels with their products and the failure to do so results in injury, a products liability lawsuit is almost sure to follow. Warning labels must be compliant with the standards set forth by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). These labels must inform the consumer of existing hazards and the risks involved, as well as how to avoid hazardous situations.
