Defining Product Liability
Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of a manufacturer, distributor, or seller for allowing a defective or dangerous product to fall into the hands of a consumer. Manufacturers and sellers must take due care in designing, creating, and marketing products to consumers. Letting a defective product slip through the cracks and injure consumers is negligence, and may result in lawsuits against the responsible company.
Manufacturers are strictly liable when their defective products injure consumers, according to federal law. This means consumers do not have to prove negligence or understand how the defect occurred to obtain compensation. They simply must show that the product contained a defect, and this defect caused their injuries. Defects can occur during manufacturing, because of a design error, or due to unsafe packaging or product marketing. If the rules of strict liability don’t apply to your case, you may have to prove that the defendant was negligent in causing your injuries to qualify for compensation.
Damages You Can Recover
A successful product liability claim could result in payment for your injury-related medical bills, property damage, lost income, and pain and suffering. Clients involved in cases against manufacturers of defective drugs, medical devices, children’s toys, appliances, and other products have obtained significant recoveries for their damages. You may also be eligible for compensation if we can prove your case.
