Each year there are millions of products that enter the market. Technological advances have certainly made products more convenient. However, many products that enter the market are made poorly or are so dangerous that it outweighs the benefits of using the product.

Generally, any type of product can be subject to a products liability claim. There have been products liability claims filed against companies for harm suffered after using prescriptions, toys, cookware, food, electronic devices and more. There are three different types of products liability claims:
- Manufacturer’s Defect: A manufacturing defect is a defect that occurs while a product is being made. Manufacturing defects are unintended malfunctions of some, but not all of, the products that are made. However, a manufacturing defect can impact a large number of individuals. An example of a manufacturer’s defect is two missing screws from 1,000 of 25,000 chairs made, which causes the chair to collapse on impact.
- Design Defect: A design defect is a defect that occurs while a product is created. Design defects usually occur as the result of intentional decisions made by companies. When a product is designed the creators make certain decisions regarding the look or functionality of a product. When a design defect occurs, it impacts every product created. An example of a design defect is a company creating a chair with only two legs for functionality. However, the design of two chairs causes the chair to collapse on impact.
- Failure to Warn: Failure to warn is a type of defect that occurs when a manufacturer fails to warn individuals of dangers from the use of a product that are not obvious and could not be seen when using a product.
When products liability cases arise, there are a number of parties that may be sued. After injuries, a lawsuit may be initiated against a manufacturer, distributor, or retailer.
