Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause.
There are three different types of defects that can cause harm to consumers: design defects, manufacturing defects and defects in marketing. Products with design defects were defective before they were even made due to a flaw in the design. With manufacturing defects, something goes wrong during production or construction of the product. Defects in marketing can result in improper product instructions, products that do not live up to their warranties or a lack of necessary warnings regarding product use. A defective product can result in serious personal injuries, including but not limited to:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Pain and suffering
- Food poisoning
- Wrongful death
According to statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are approximately 200 to 300 product recalls each year. Many of these recalls involve children’s toys and other products. Some other products that are recalled frequently include tools, household appliances and furniture. Equipment that people rely on to remain safe, such as fire alarms and smoke detectors, have also been known to be defective at times, resulting in injury and death. Various parts of automobiles — from brakes to tires — are recalled frequently and are one of the most frequent types of product liability claims.
Medical devices and medications are also the subject of product liability cases. Unanticipated and deadly side effects, in addition to improper usage instructions, have occurred in many product liability lawsuits. Toxic exposure to lead, asbestos or benzene can also lead to a product liability claim. Even certain foods have been recalled in the past for causing harm to consumers.
Hold Those Who Harmed You Accountable
These are just a few of the ways products injure people every day. Victims of dangerous products may suffer serious, life-changing injuries, including permanent, disabling brain injury and spinal cord injury.
Working with a skilled product liability lawyer who is determined to hold those accountable for the harm that they have caused cannot change the past, but it can help make things right again.
