Laws of Product Liability in Ohio

Defective products are categorized into three different categories in Ohio.

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 specific 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.
