Compensation Awards in Tennessee
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 occasions in which a product in Portland is defective. If you or a loved one has been injured by such a product, you could have a lawsuit that uses the laws of Product Liability.
Laws of Product Liability in Tennessee
There are 3 basic categories of product defects in Tennessee.
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. Design defects are found when the plans off of which the products are built are faulty themselves. If, for example, a thermos called for too thin of a material to be used, and hot liquids spilled out and burned the user, this would be a design defect.
