Laws of Product Liability in New York

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 particular 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 class of defects are classified as design defects. These occur when the manufacturer built the item to the exact specifications, but the design was fault. As an example, if a coffee mug is too thin and a hot beverage cracks the mug and cuts you, this would be a design defect.
