Understanding Product Liability

What is Product Liability?

If you or a loved was injured as a result of a faulty, defective, or poorly manufactured produced, you may have a product liability claim. Products that fail to live up to their claims about performance, effectiveness, or general use, may be subjects of product liability claims. In a product liability claim, an injured person may seek to recover damages for any injuries that they have sustained as a result. If you are injured by a faulty product you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

What are the elements of a product liability case?

When a plaintiff files a product liability case, there may be a number of different elements to that case. Some of those elements can include:

  • Negligence. If a plaintiff alleges that the defendant was negligent, this can mean that the manufacturer was negligent in in designing or creating the product, which led to the injury
  • Breach of warranty. If a defendant asserts that a product should work a type of way and that that product fails and causes an injury, this can be a reason for a breach of warranty claim.
  • Strict liability. This theory focuses on how the product is dangerous without having to prove that the manufacturer was negligent.

If you have been injured by a faulty, defective, or poorly manufactured product, you should consult with an product liability attorney. An experienced product liability attorney can review the facts of your case, advise you of your rights, and discuss your legal options.

If you have been injured in any type of accident, you may need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.  Our attorneys have over a combined century of experience dealing with personal injury matters.
