Defective Product Liabilities
Have you or a member of your family been injured by a product you’ve recently purchased?
If so, you may have a product liability claim….and you might be entitled to some form of compensation for the injuries caused by the defective product.
A product defect can be a flaw in the design or even the lack of a sufficient warning to consumers.
And these defects lead to product liability….where the manufacturer and sellers are liable for any injuries caused by a defective condition. They are not only liable to you or a family member, but to innocent bystanders as well.
In fact, every company that is part of the manufacturing process and distribution can be held liable. That would include the different component manufacturers (parts of a defective product are usually produced by many different companies) and all the middlemen that distributed the product as well.
So, how do product liability claims begin? Well, a claim can be filed by either the consumer who was injured, by someone to whom the product was loaned or given to and bystanders as well. Although there are no federal product liability laws, most states have them. And to file a claim, you should contact our experienced Lawyers that handle defective products.
In order to have an effective case, you will have to prove that the product was defective in one of these three areas:
- Design Defect
- Manufacturing Defect
- Or Defect in Marketing
Design defects refer to the time before the product was actually manufactured.
Manufacturing defects occur during the production of the item.
And Defects in marketing are either improper instructions or failure to warn consumers of the possible dangers of using a product.
In order to find out if your injuries were caused by a defective product and that you have a claim, you should consult with one of our experienced product liability lawyers to fight your case.
