Types of Product Defects 

Product defects vary. However, they generally fall into three categories. 

Design defects 

These are products whose design is defective. The product was manufactured and assembled correctly. However, there was a flaw in its design and this flaw is responsible for causing injuries. Design defects occur for various reasons e.g. if the manufacturer is trying to cut back on expenses, they may go for a more efficient design. However, achieving this design may require some compromises on quality or safety. 

Manufacturing defects

Defects often occur in products as a result of errors in the manufacturing process. The product’s design may be safe, however, due to an error in its manufacture or assembly, it may cause injuries when applied for its intended purpose. These types of defects are the most common reason for defective product claims. 

Failure to warn defects 

Manufacturers not only have the responsibility to ensure that they design and produce safe products, but also provide consumers of their products with an adequate warning on the dangers of using the product. They are also required to provide adequate instructions for the safe use of the products. For example, manufacturers should provide warnings for products that should be kept away from children. 

Types of Product Liability 

There are 3 primary theories of product liability that can apply to a defective product case. These are: 

Negligence 

This theory depends on proving that there was negligence in the manufacture or distribution of the product. You would have to show that the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer failed to exercise a reasonable standard of care in manufacturing, distributing, or selling the product. This can be challenging.

Strict liability 

Most defective product cases apply this theory. Under this theory, you will only have to show that the product was defective and that this defect resulted in your injuries and damages. You won’t have to prove negligence. This significantly lowers the bar for evidence on the defendant’s part and gives you a better chance of achieving a positive outcome. 

Breach of warranty 

Many products today come with warranties that are either implied or explicit. If you were injured by the product’s failure to meet the terms of its warranty, you can file a lawsuit for compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Defective Products in Virginia

I was injured by a product. Can I file a defective product lawsuit?

Just because you were injured by a product does not mean that the product in question is defective. In order for a product to be considered defective, you must demonstrate negligence such as an error in the manufacture of the product that resulted in your injury. This can be challenging.

Is there a deadline to file a product liability claim in Virginia?

Yes. If you have been injured by a defective product, you will have up to two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries. If you fail to file your claim within this period, you may not be able to recover compensation.

There are some exceptions to the statute of limitations and how it is applied to different cases. For example, if the injury could not be reasonably discovered until its diagnosis much later, the statute of limitations will begin on the date of the diagnosis.
