Product Liability Laws in Oregon

There are 3 basic classes of product defects in Oregon.

First, there are manufacturing defects. These are defects that happen when a product is soundly designed, but some error in its manufacturing caused it to be defective. For instance, 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 class of defects are categorized as design defects. These happen when the manufacturer built the item to the particular 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.
