Compensation Awards in Oregon
Most of the products you see for sale are safe, and have been tested to ensure that this is the case. However, there are some times in which a product in Multnomah County is defective. When a defective product causes an injury, this brings up the area of law called Product Liability.
Product Liability Laws in Oregon
There are 3 basic categories of product defects in Oregon.
Manufacturing defects are the first. These are defects that come from the actual production and making of the product. For example, if essential screws, which are called for in the design, are not installed in a chair, and the chair breaks when someone sits on it as a result, this is a manufacturing defect.
The second class of defects are classified as design defects. These occur when the manufacturer built the item to the specific 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.
