Compensation Awards in Mississippi
Most of the products on the shelves of stores have been tested and retested for safety. However, there are occasions where a product in Biloxi is defective. When a defective product causes an injury, this brings up the sphere of law called Product Liability.
The Law of Product Liability in Mississippi
Three different types of defects are categorized in the laws of Product Liability in Mississippi.
The first is known as "manufacturing defects." These defects exist when a product is of sound design, but was assembled or built improperly. For instance, the design of an electric saw might include an emergency shutoff switch. If this switch was installed improperly, and therefore didn't work, this would be an example of 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.
