There are several legal avenues with which defective product lawsuits can prove liability for chainsaw injuries. Fabricación: Manufacturer defects occur when there is a flaw in the manufacturing method, which caused the product to be different from what the manufacturer originally intended. The product will be considered defective when it is different from its original design, even though care was exercised to avoid this issue. When considering whether a product has a manufacturing defect, the important question is always whether it was designed in conformity with the manufacturer’s original plans. If there is some type of deviation then a manufacturer defect is considered to exist. Design: Un defecto de diseño tiene en cuenta el diseño general del producto. ¿Estaba bien diseñado el producto? ¿Disponía el fabricante de diseños más adecuados con menos probabilidades de causar daños? ¿Previó el fabricante el uso del producto? Cuando se interpone una demanda por defecto de diseño, la premisa última es si el diseño hace que el producto sea defectuoso. Si se determina que el producto está defectuosamente diseñado, usted puede tener derecho a una indemnización por las lesiones sufridas. Failure to Warn: Failure to warn occurs when the defendant or manufacturer of the product does not warn of known dangers. If the manufacturer does not adequately warn of a known risk then it can be liable for failure to warn. While manufacturers are not required to warn of obvious dangers, the courts apply an objective test to determine knowledge. Would a reasonable person know whether the product was defective or noticed the inherent issue? This is the objective standard test and specific knowledge is not considered. Manufacturers must warn through proper instruction of the various known risks or risks they could have discovered through reasonable discovery.
