The Law of Product Liability in Ohio

First, manufacturing defects are those defects that stem from the actual manufacture of the product. For example, if a desk collapses because the manufacturer did not put in three bolts that were required by the design, 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.
