What Is Product Liability?
Product liability usually arises from a manufacturer or seller introducing
allegedly faulty products to consumers or users. This is an act of negligence
and if an injury occurs, any person associated with the product may be
held accountable if it is shown that the product was defective.
There are three categories in which product liability cases fall:
- Defective manufacture
- Defective design
- Failure to provide adequate warning or instructions
Knowing the differences between these categories is one of the things that
separates experienced and novice attorneys. Each category comes with its
own defense strategy and should be handled differently. Product liability
cases are only valid when the user experienced some form of harm as a
result of the product's issue. When you reach out to our firm, we
will listen to the details of your case and explain your rights and options.
You will be able to work directly with you so you know your best interests
are kept atop our priority list at all times.
