Product Liability

 

product-liabilityWhen a corporation manufactures and sells a product to the public, they have a responsibility to make sure it is safe for its intended use and to warn of any potential hazards it may pose. They must use reasonable care to properly design, manufacture, test and inspect their products to make sure that they are not unreasonably dangerous.

Compensation may be available through a product liability lawsuit for injuries caused by defective medical devices or products. All cases are reviewed by our lawyers on a contingency fee basis, which means that there are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained.

DANGEROUS OR DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS

A product liability claim for injuries suffered from a dangerous item can be founded on one of the following legal theories:

DEFECTIVE DESIGN: If a product is unreasonably dangerous when used in its intended manner, the manufacturer may be liable for designing a defective and unreasonably dangerous product.

MANUFACTURING DEFECT: If there is a flaw during the manufacturing process, which makes a particular product more dangerous then intended or would be suspected by the user, there may be a claim for a manufacturing defect.

DEFECTIVE WARNING: If a product can not be made safe, and the manufacturer fails to adequately warn of the dangers associated with the normal use, they may be liable for failure to warn.

BREACH OF WARRANTY:  If a product fails to conform to an express warranty the manufacturer can be held liable for injuries suffered by that failure to conform.  In addition, even if there is no express statement, if the product is not fit for the ordinary purposes for which such products are used, there may be a breach of implied warranty.

STRICT LIABILITY:  If a product is more dangerous than an ordinary consumer would contemplate, the manufacturer could be held strictly liable for selling a defective and unreasonably dangerous product.

There are no fees or expenses until we win your case.  Every case has a time limit, so it is important that you make sure your legal rights are protected.
