Design Defects versus Manufacturing Defects

For the most part, consumers in the United States are shielded from reckless and irresponsible products that could endanger their safety if used as intended. There are strict regulations governing many different realms of the manufacture and sale of goods. But when a company chooses to put an unsafe item into the marketplace, and health inspectors fail to note the danger, unsuspecting buyers may suffer from serious injuries.

If you have been hurt by a dangerous product, then you might be able to file a civil lawsuit against the negligent manufacturer who created the item. A successful legal action can gain you financial compensation for medical bills and other damages as appropriate. Contact the Des Moines personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 to speak with a skilled and experienced attorney about your potential case.

Two Sources of Similar Tragedy

Though we tend to imagine that all product defects are effectively the same, there are actually two distinct kinds of product defects. These two classes are separated by the point during the production process at which they are introduced. The two different forms of product defect are:

  • Design defects – defects that are inherent in the design of a product and will therefore be present in every correctly produced single item; these are especially troubling because they could have been so easily eliminated through greater caution and review
  • Manufacturing defects – defects that are introduced during the physical creation of a product and may only affect a portion of a production run

The more you understand about the accident you suffered, the better you will be able to protect your legal rights. Our experienced Des Moines personal injury attorneys can help you research your options in-depth.
