When it comes to product liability cases, a person or the company can be held liable for the defective product. For instance, the liable party can be responsible for a number of products, such as faulty medical devices, foods that have caused food poisoning, and so much more.

Manufacturing, Design, and Marketing Defects
If you have been injured due to a defective product, you do have the ability to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. The potential parties that can be sued are the manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributor, and this would be dependent on the type of defect that was caused. There are two categories when it comes to defective products, which are design defects and manufacturing defects.
Manufacturing defects are caused by an error in the assembly process and are not supposed to be part of the product. When it comes to manufacturing defects, these types of issues are typically found in a small percentage of the products. It is the company’s responsibility to make sure that there are no errors that occur is the process of manufacturing the goods. Otherwise, if someone has become injured due to the faulty manufactured product, the victim can file a lawsuit against the company for their negligence in providing a bad product.
When it comes to design defects, these are quite different than manufacturing defects. A design defect can occur when there is a flaw in the blueprint of a product, which results in it being unreasonably harmful and creates a danger for its users.
If you believe a defective design in the product exists, then you should consider the following:
Was the product’s design unreasonable hazardous prior to production?
Was it likely to expect that the design of the product could cause harm to a consumer?
Could the company has used a better design that would not affect the purpose of the product?
If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you may be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. If this is the case, then it is important that you get in contact with a Los Angeles product injury lawyer as soon as possible to preserve your rights and get you the justice and compensation you deserve.
There are two types of marketing defects that can potentially occur and they are the failure to warn and warning labels.
Failure to warn: It is the company’s responsibility to warn of potential risks that a product poses. If a company fails to warn consumers by providing warnings or instructions that could have prevented an injury, then they will be held responsible.
Warning labels: Warning labels must be easy to read, must offer a detailed explanation, and show safety risks with pictures. If the company fails to do so, then it will be held responsible for the injuries that have caused the consumers due to the lack of or insufficient warning labels.
