Products Liability is an area of personal injury law that addresses injuries occurred from dangerous products.
A Products Liability lawsuit typically involves a claim of negligence, strict liability, breach of a warranty, and/or a violation of a consumer protection law.
There are three major theories of recovery for a products liability lawsuit:
- Manufacturing Defects: The product was not made in a reasonably safe manner.
- Design Defects: The product was designed in an unreasonably safe manner.
- Failure to Warn: The product was not marketed with safety precaution or warnings sufficient to protect the consumer.
Depending on the type of claim and theory of recovery involved, liability in a Products Liability case can be limited to just one party, or liability can be extended to any party in the entire chain of sell.
Recovering compensation from manufacturers and large retailers can be very challenging. These parties typically have enormous wealth, power and influence. If you have been injured by a dangerous product, it is very important that you retain experienced and competent legal counsel in the area of Products Liability.
