What Does Product Liability Law Cover?
Product manufacturers have a legal responsibility to exercise reasonable
care when designing and constructing products in order to ensure they
are safe for use by consumers. However, many large companies often allow
other motives, such as maximizing profits and overrunning competition,
to cloud their decision making and disregard the safety of their products.
The result can be an unreasonably dangerous or defective product in the
marketplace that could cause physical damages,
catastrophic injuries, and
Product liability law protects consumers from the following types of product defects:
Design Defects – In which a flaw in the product’s specifications make it
inherently dangerous to use. An example of a design defect would be a
car whose design makes it prone to tipping when it turns corners.
Manufacturing Defects – In which the specifications are correct, but an error occurred
during the manufacturing process. This usually includes the use of inferior
materials or shoddy workmanship. An example of a manufacturing defect
would include a cracked or malformed car part.
Marketing Defects – Also known as “failure to warn,” in which the product
did not come with sufficient warnings or instructions for safe use, particularly
if a company knows a product is dangerous. A marketing defect example
would be a chemical product that did not come with adequate directions for use.
Given the complexity of product liability claims and their potential for
being vigorously combatted by large companies and insurers, injured victims

in obtaining justice through the legal system. Our team has over 90 years
of combined trial experience, and is passionate about these cases not
only because we can help victims and their families, but also to ensure
dangerous products don’t cause further harm to others.
