Defective Product Lawsuits in New Mexico
Defective product lawsuits encompass a very wide range of potential cases. A defective product lawsuit is filed whenever a product not only fails to operate correctly but also does actual harm to the person using it. Product liability cases also include medications, which can have dangerous side effects or be totally ineffective and very harmful. When considering a defective product or product liability lawsuit, it is important that you understand the product’s purpose and the reason why it has harmed you. You must also establish that you were using the product correctly and for its intended purpose.
Defective Products Warnings
If a product cannot be made safely, is toxic, or otherwise harmful a person, then there must be some sort of manufacturer’s warning given with the product to warn any user of its dangers. If this warning is inaccurate, poorly expressed, or not there at all, then the warning itself is defective.
When a certain product harms a person because it is more dangerous than it should be, then the fault may lie in the manufacturing of the product. If a mistake is made in the manufacturing of a product, then that product may prove to be unnecessarily and excessively dangerous for what it is. This is known as a manufacturing defect.
Sometimes the fundamental design of a product is potentially harmful to others. Defective designs make products unreasonably and excessively dangerous when used in their intended manner.
