Product Liability Claim
Product Liability Law Firm Specializing in Getting Justice for You When a Product is Defective
When a product has an inherently dangerous defect, the manufacturer may be held strictly liable for any resulting injuries. Suppose the consumer was using the product as directed and was acting with reasonable caution. In that case, he or she may be entitled to compensation without having to prove negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Proof of the defect and that it was the proximate cause of the consumer’s injuries may be enough for a successful product liability case.
Product Liability Lawsuit
A product liability lawsuit may be based on one or more of three primary types of defects:
- Defective Design: This is a defect in the product’s design, which makes it inherently dangerous or may present unexpected hazards to a consumer. An example may be a collapsible stroller that poses a laceration risk to consumers due to the placement of a lever that must be pulled to collapse it. This would affect all of the products manufactured with that design.
- Manufacturing Defect: This is a defect that occurs during the manufacturing process. In the same example involving the stroller, if the stroller was correctly designed but during the manufacturing process, a special guard to protect one’s fingers was missing a screw, causing it to fall off. This could be considered a manufacturing defect. It may affect only one or a certain lot of products.
- Lack of Proper Warning/Instructions for Use: Some products are dangerous because they do not contain proper warning labels or instructions for use. Consumers can only be expected to safely use products if they are warned of unexpected hazards and are given instructions on assembly and use. With the stroller example, the consumer would need proper instructions on how to collapse the stroller and a warning of the possibility of getting one’s finger caught in/cut by the lever.
