A product can be dangerous if it was designed poorly, made incorrectly or given the wrong instructions and warnings.

Dangerous Product Lawyers
When a product causes damage or injuries because of a defect, it is considered a dangerous or defective product. Atlanta personal injury lawyers who work with product liability cases know this to be true. An injury can occur because of a hazard that happened during the product design process, manufacturing process or because it is missing labels or lacking proper warnings. Whatever the reason is, if it directly leads to a serious injury or wrongful death, the designers, manufacturers, distributors, or retailers can be held liable for the injuries the product caused.
A product can be defective if it is not designed properly. This can include a design that calls for using the wrong materials, lacks important safety features, or even designed so that the final product does not work properly. An example of a design defect would be a space heater that's designed without a safety screen over the heat coils. Even if the final product is built exactly to specifications, users will still burn their hands by touching the hot coils because no safety measures were added in the original design. More research and experience by the design department would have made this product safer and therefore it is considered unreasonably dangerous.
Another way that a product can be defective or dangerous is by an error being made during the creation or manufacturing process of a product. This includes using bad or faulty materials, using the wrong formula or pattern, or allowing the process to be tainted (this is common in the manufacturing of food such as peanut butter or lettuce where the product becomes tainted by salmonella or some other disease). An example of a manufacturing defect would be a space heater being manufactured incorrectly so that the system gets too hot causing skin to be burned when it comes in contact with the product when it is on. Quality control measures and safety inspections should be in place before products leave the facility.
The third way that products can be considered dangerous or defective often seems like it's the most simple. When a product has any sort of hazard or warning associated with it, all warnings and dangers must be listed on the packaging, instructions or even the equipment itself explaining to users the dangers and how to avoid them. Just like with prescription drugs, all warnings and side effects must be listed on the packaging so users can be aware of the dangers that a product poses. Everyone is probably familiar with the warning tags on the cords of all hair dryers and irons warning users not to get the product wet. This is an example of properly labeling products so that all users are aware of this threat.
