Product Liability Law & Consequences

Manufacturers of consumer products and their component parts are responsible for providing safe, properly designed products that carry information as to how the product is to be used. In the case of pharmaceuticals, the instructions or marketing will also carry warnings regarding potential side effects. When a product has been poorly designed, poorly manufactured, and fails to warn or advise consumers as to its proper usage, it may be found to be defective or dangerous. When this happens and a consumer is injured by using a product as directed, a personal injury claim seeking damages may be justified against the manufacturers, distributors, and retailers selling it.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, defective products are responsible for approximately 29 million injuries annually. Any product sold to consumers may fall under product liability laws.

Such products can include:

  • Automobiles
  • Auto parts, like tires, brakes, airbags, seatbelts, etc.
  • Power tools
  • Children’s gear
  • Medical drugs and devices
  • Small and large appliances
  • Food and drinks
  • And more

You may be able to recover damages under concepts of negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. Legal counsel is vital to understanding your case and whether you have grounds for a valid claim.
