Differences between manufacturing and design defects in products

People in Florida use many different products every day. When purchasing these products people usually have a choice between a number of different brands who make similar products. Each brand may be designed slightly different or cost different amounts and people make their choice of what to buy on a number of different factors. However, no matter what choice they ultimately make, they expect the product to work for its intended purpose.

Eventually most products will break down over time, but some will break much sooner or may have some inherent design defects. This can be very frustrating for the consumers who buy these defective products, but it can also be dangerous. Sometimes these defects cause injuries to the people using them. Some of the injuries can also be very severe and change people's lives for a long period of time or potentially permanently. The victims in these situations may be entitled to compensation, but it is important to know who is responsible for the defect which caused the injury.

The defect could be a design defect or a manufacturing defect. Often times the designer of the product is a different company than the one who actually manufactures the product. A design defect means that the product was manufactured properly according to the design, but the design of the product itself is the problem. A manufacturing defect is a mistake that happens during the manufacturing process and results in a defect that was not intended in the design. Basically the difference is a design defect was intended and a manufacturing defect was unintended.

Unfortunately many people in Florida are injured by defective products. These victims may be entitled to compensation, but who pays this compensation depends on whether it was a design or manufacturing defect. This is a very important factor to know, so the victim receives the compensation they deserve. Experienced attorneys understand these cases and may be able to guide one through it.
