Laws of Product Liability in Hawaii
There are three types of defects that the laws of Product Liability cover in Hawaii.
First, there are manufacturing defects. These are defects that occur when a product is soundly designed, but some error in its manufacturing caused it to be defective. For example, the design of a chair might call for a certain type of wood to be used in the legs. If another, more brittle type, were used instead, this would be a manufacturing defect.
The second type is the design defect. This occurs when a product is not of sound design, and will be defective even if made to specifications. For example, if a kitchen knife's specifications call for a metal blade that is extremely thin and brittle, creating a risk that it might break, causing injury, this is a design defect.
