Laws Regarding Product Liability in Wisconsin
Defective products are grouped into three different categories in Wisconsin.

For example, 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.
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.
