Compensation Awards in Oklahoma
Most of the products you see for sale are safe, and have been tested to ensure that this is the case. However, there are certain occasions in which a product in Broken Bow is defective. When a defective product causes an injury, this brings up the area of law called Product Liability.
Laws of Product Liability in Oklahoma
Defective products are categorized in 3 basic categories in Oklahoma.
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.
