Product Liability

Personal Injury Deserves Personal Service
GreenbergLaw > Product Liability

In today’s society, the average person comes in contact with a countless number products in a given year. Each product has various uses with the expectation that the product will safely function as it was intended. Unfortunately, manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers do not always act appropriately resulting in defective products that cause injuries and damages to consumers.

There are three main sources of legal liability associated with defective products:

  • Manufacturing defects – These types of defects occur in the manufacturing process, and often involve poor quality materials being used or low quality workmanship.
  • Design defects – these kinds of defects are present when a product is dangerous to use simply by virtue of the way it is designed.
  • Marketing defects – these kinds of defects are also known as “failure-to-warn” defects. These defects arise when a product carries a danger that is inherent to the product or non-obvious to its user and the risk to the consumer or user could have been easily lessened by appropriate warnings.

 

The law allows for people injured by defective products to recover through a variety of product liability actions that can include:

 

  • Negligence
  • Strict Liability
  • Breach of Warranty (Express Warranty and Implied Warranty)

The types of products that can cause injury are extremely varied, and can include items such as airbags, automobiles, BBQ gas tanks, beer bottles helmets, electronics, furniture, medical devices, tires, and toys. Injuries that are caused by defective products can range from minor lacerations to broken bones, and in some cases even paralysis or death.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to significant compensation for the injuries. Claims for defective products can result in damages being awarded for past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, past and future pain and suffering, or damage to property that may have occurred. In addition, in some circumstances punitive damages may also be available.
