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 wrongful death.
Product liability law protects consumers from the following types of product defects:
- Design Defects
- Manufacturing Defects
- Marketing 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.
– 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.
– 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 require experienced trial attorneys who are prepared to assist families 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.
