WHAT IS A MARKETING DEFECT?
When a designer or manufacturer knows about a potential defect or problem with a product, he or she is responsible for warning consumers about it. Sadly, notification sometimes fails to occur, leaving consumers the victims of unsuspected injuries and expenses. This is an example of a marketing defect, which is one type of product liability issues common to the Chicago area. The attorneys of the Disparti Law Group, P.A., work hard to prove marketing defects when they result in injury or expense, and may be able to work for you in pursuit of financial compensation for any damages.
Proving Marketing Defects
You personal injury attorney will be responsible for proving a marketing defect, if that is your claim. To do this, three conditions must be present:
- Seller’s / designer’s knowledge of potential problem at time of marketing
- Failure to warn consumers of problem, which leads to unreasonable danger
- Establishment of a link between the failure to warn consumer and consumer’s injury
These three conditions will have to be present for your case to be effective. If this is the case, you will likely receive financial compensation from the seller or manufacturer responsible for negligent marketing practices.
