Do I Have a Product Liability Case?

A product liability case can involve virtually any type of product, whether it is a children’s toy, a household appliance, an automobile component or a piece of heavy machinery. A common example is pharmaceutical liability claims involving dangerous drugs that cause unintended health issues.

Your Rights Under Consumer Protection Laws

In the United States, consumer protection laws were established to keep consumers safe from potentially dangerous products. This means that product manufacturers and designers have a responsibility to you, the consumer. Not only are they responsible for ensuring that their products are safe to use, but they must also warn buyers of any potential risks.

Product liability holds the manufacturer accountable for their failure to take reasonable precautions that ensure the products they make and sell are free from inherent design flaws and manufacturing defects which could cause harm to consumers. The manufacturer is also expected to provide adequate labeling and warning to ensure that users are aware of known dangers.

If an injury occurred while using a product under normal circumstances and according to its intended use, the manufacturer may be found to be legally accountable to the accident victim or surviving family members. However, it will be up to you to take the first step. This is why you should waste no time in discussing your case with a product injury attorney at Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs. We are here to help you seek restitution.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Product liability may extend to several different parties in the retail process, including manufacturers, sellers, and distributors. While a manufacturer may be responsible for a faulty product, the supplier of parts used in a defective product may sometimes have equal or greater liability. Product liability claims may sometimes even be filed by parties who did not directly purchase the product, but who were harmed by its use.

While the range of defective product lawsuits is broad, most product liability claims fall into the following categories:

  • Defective manufacture: The most obvious type of product liability claims is when a product is flawed due to an error in the manufacturing process, causing it to be somehow different from others like it. These types of claims typically involve products that are dangerous due to low-quality materials or shoddy workmanship.
  • Design defect: These types of claims arise when a product is inherently dangerous due to a flaw its design, even though it may be manufactured perfectly. An example of this would be an SUV that has a high rollover risk due to its top-heavy design.
  • Failure to warn: Some products such as power tools carry some level of risk and require certain precautions to be operated safely. In these cases, manufacturers have a duty to provide adequate warnings about a product’s proper use to keep consumers safe. An example of this would be a prescription medication that does not include a proper warning label about dangerous side effects that can occur if taken with another common medication, such as aspirin.

The Importance of Hiring Experienced, Trial-Tested Counsel

When contemplating legal action against a manufacturer, whether it is a pharmaceutical company or an automobile manufacturer, it is important to find an attorney with the skill and dedication necessary to effectively prosecute the case.

Defendants often have vast resources at their disposal for disputing the claim, and they have considerable incentive to avoid the public relations disaster of being found to be responsible for causing injury or death.
