What is Product Liability?
Product liability is the legal responsibility of a product manufacturer, distributor, or retailer to compensate consumers who are injured by their products.
In order to prove that a company is liable for your injuries, you must be able to show that the product was defective in some way and that the defect caused your injuries.
There are three main types of product defects:
- Design defects: These are defects that exist in the product from the very beginning. An example would be a car with faulty brakes.
- Manufacturing defects: These occur when something is wrong with the product during the manufacturing process. An example would be food that is contaminated with bacteria.
- Marketing defects: These relate to problems with the product’s labeling, instructions, or warnings. An example would be a medication that does not have adequate warnings about potential side effects.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a product or device, it is important to speak with an experienced product liability lawyer as soon as possible. They will be able to review your case and help you determine if you have a claim.
