Compensation Awards in Rhode Island
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 occurrences in which a product in Bristol is defective. If you have been hurt by a defective product, then you may have a lawsuit under the laws of Product Liability.
Product Liability Laws
Defective products are categorized into three different categories in Rhode Island.
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 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.
