If you have ever faced any serious injury due to a defective product, you may be able to secure compensation for your losses. At Soloff and Zervanos, P.C., our product liability attorneys are experienced in handling complex product liability cases. We have helped personal injury victims recover the compensation they are entitled to from negligent companies and manufacturers.
What Is Product Liability?
Product liability lawsuits refer to holding the designers, manufacturers, distributors, or sellers of a product accountable for supplying defective products that cause harm to consumers. Sometimes, the manufacturer deliberately sells the faulty product to avoid the extra expense of fixing a problem. They do so without considering how this could affect consumers. If such a product causes any damage to the consumer, then all the sellers involved in that product will be held accountable.
Who Is At Fault In The Product Liability Case?
For a company to be liable in these situations, it must be sold the product to the market at some point. In general, if a defective product injured someone, then the injury victim will be able to recover compensation without having to prove that the at-fault party was negligent. This is considered a “strict liability” type of claim.
The manufacturer may not end up being the only party held liable in these situations. Any company involved in the supply chain could be liable for product defects, including:
- The seller,
- The wholesaler,
- The retailer,
- Any other party who was involved with the manufacturing or selling of the product.
How Do You Prove Fault In A Product Liability Case?
We buy products for our ease and should not have to worry about sustaining an injury. If a purchased product causes any harm to a consumer, then the injury victim has the right to file a product liability lawsuit.
Product liability cases are not easy. The victim needs to prove that one of the following led to the injury:
1. Design Defect
Sometimes, injury victims discover that a design defect caused their injuries. The design defect should be such that it affects the product’s safety and makes it unsafe to use.
2. Manufacturing Defect
Manufacturing defects usually occur during the manufacturing or assembling of the product that makes it unsafe for use.
3. Marketing Defect
Marketing defects usually include the improper marketing of the product or not sharing the necessary information with the consumers. Sometimes such acts are not dangerous, but for some products, like medicines, improper marketing or not sharing the proper directions may cause serious consequences.
