The products that we bring into our homes are generally meant to make our lives easier. Unfortunately, some products have just the opposite effect. Manufacturers of defective consumer products may be liable for any injuries that occur as a result of product defects.

Types of Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims usually fall into one of three categories. These categories are:
- Design defects – the product has an inherent flaw in its design, meaning that the problem is widespread
- Manufacturing defects – the product suffered a defect while it was being manufactured, which may mean the problem is either widespread or isolated
- Marketing defects – the product’s manufacturer mislabeled the product’s potential dangers or purposefully left them out
Each of these defects may be the product manufacturer’s liability, meaning that the company is accountable for the injuries that its consumers suffer. As such, individuals who suffer harm from using faulty products may be entitled to financial compensation from the product’s manufacturer.
Before pursuing financial compensation, individuals should discuss their cases with experienced Birmingham product liability lawyers.
