What is a Product Liability Claim?
Product liability provides protection for consumers who are injured by a defective product. When a product is responsible for causing an injury to an individual, a product liability lawsuit can establish who is at fault, including the person or company that designed the product, the manufacturer of the component parts of the product, the manufacturer responsible for the assembly of the product, the wholesaler, and the retailer.
The following are examples of defective products and types of liability that may be established in your claim:
Defective Product Design
With some products, the initial design itself can be flawed, causing the defect to subsequently be built into the production. Examples of defective product designs include toys manufactured for small children that contain parts that can cause choking and even death if swallowed, or automobile tires that fail under normal driving conditions. Often, these instances lead to the manufacturer’s recall of the product.
These particular defects occur during the production process and are often the result of poor quality control or the use of substandard materials. One example of a manufacturing defect might be a ladder that is improperly assembled and collapses when used. Another example could be a defective medical device that breaks down inside the patient's body.
Absence of Warning Labels
A product that is known to be potentially dangerous, but does not include warnings or instructions on how to safely use it can be considered defective. An example of a product deemed defective due to the absence of warning labels might be a medication that does not include a list of the potential side effects or does not warn about its possible interaction with other drugs.
