How is a manufacturing defect different from a design defect?

Products are often the cause of harm to a person, even after they have gone through all of the necessary quality checks that are mandatory before they end up on the shelves. When this happens, the injury that incurs can often be serious. This is especially true when a young child has been injured by a toy, for example, or when an electrical product has a fault. Many people decide to exercise their right to file a claim to recoup damages in this situation. If this is the case, the question must be asked: Was it a design defect or a manufacturing defect?

Important notes on civil asset forfeiture

Being subject to civil asset forfeiture can be a very stressful position to be in. Civil asset forfeiture means that a member of a law enforcement team has the legal right to cease and confiscate property that he or she has a reason to believe has been a part of some legal activity. This could be your car or another valuable possession that you own.

Cases in which a consumer fraud lawsuit can be filed in Minnesota

Minnesota is one of several states the subscribes to the Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act (UDTPA), a federal statute that was first instituted in 1964 and underwent revisions two years later. This law is backed up by Minnesota's Antitrust Law, drafted in 1971. Both make it illegal for businesses to take part in certain illicit trade practices that are either discriminatory or otherwise unfairly restrict trade.
