There are three basic types of defects that can serve as the basis of a product liability claim:

Defective Design — A defective design can lead to a defect being repeated throughout an entire product line. For example, a booster seat may not properly secure a child in the seat due to its design, or a toaster may overheat during normal use and pose a fire risk. A design defect in many cases will lead to a product recall.

Defective Manufacturing — The product may be designed properly, but the manufacturer may not institute adequate quality control, or the manufacturer may use shoddy materials. Defective manufacturing can pose a serious risk of injury. Tennessee law holds manufacturers responsible for injuries caused by products that are unreasonably unsafe for normal or anticipatable use.

Defective Marketing — Consumers must have access to warnings or instructions that explain any known danger about a product. Consumers may get injured if a product is marketed without sufficient warnings about any known hazards.
