When you walk into a store these days, you can expect that almost every product on the shelves has been tested and re-tested for safety. However, on rare occasions, a product in Bucksport is defective. If you or a family member has been harmed by a defective product, you may have a Products Liability case.
Product Liability Laws in Maine
There are 3 basic classes of product defects in Maine.
Manufacturing defects are the first. These are defects that come from the actual production and making of the product. For instance, if essential screws, which are called for in the design, are not installed in a chair, and the chair breaks when someone sits on it as a result, this is a manufacturing defect.
Second, design defects are defects that are present because the design is faulty. For example, if a coffee mug melts any time hot coffee is put in because the design called for the improper material, this would be a design defect.
