When you walk into a store these days, you can expect that almost every item on the shelves has been tested and re-tested for safety. However, on rare occurrences, a product in Norway is defective. If you or a family member has been injured by a defective product, you may have a Products Liability case.
Product Liability Laws
There are three types of defects that the laws of Product Liability cover in Maine.
The first type are manufacturing defects. These are defects that occur when a product was assembled or made improperly. For example, if a table has a sound design, but during assembly two key bolts were not installed, this would be a manufacturing defect.
The second type are design defects. These defects exist when they are inherent in a product's design, and the product cannot be safely manufactured, even if made to specifications. For example, if an electric saw lacks an emergency shutoff switch, this would be a design defect.
