What is product liability?
Product liability is an area of law that makes manufacturers, distributors and others who make consumer products available to the public liable for any injuries or illnesses their products cause. Product liability can apply to a wide range of consumer goods. Some common examples include defective auto parts, children's toys, furniture and others. Generally, product liability claims will be filed for either:
- Manufacturing defects
- Design defects
- Inadequate warnings, also known as marketing defects
The course of a product liability case will depend on the unique circumstances involved. This means that, if you are pursuing compensation for a manufacturing defect, design defect or marketing defect, your claim must prove or highlight specific legal elements. For example, a product with a design defect will require claims to prove the following:
- There was a safer alternative design other than the one used
- The design defect directly caused an injury or death
- An alternative design would have prevented or reduced the risk of an injury
- An alternative design was feasible at the time
Successful cases require a great deal of preparation and a focus on clearly establishing liability. They typically require the attorney to work with an expert engineer. In addition, these claims are often aggressively contested and defended against by large corporations that have deep resources and legal teams. Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., is fully prepared to take on even the most complex cases, and we will always fight aggressively for your right to fair compensation. We also provide representation for additional legal issues that may concern product liability law. This includes services for victims injured by J&J hip replacement devices, defective medical devices and dangerous drugs and medications.
