A product liability claim refers to a legal action available to consumers if they are harmed by a faulty or defective product. When products don’t operate as they should and cause injury, the party making the product available to the public — such as the manufacturer, supplier, retailer or distributor — can be held liable for damages caused by the product. The liable party may have to compensate the affected person for economic and noneconomic losses resulting from the injury.
Product liability typically falls under tort law and relates to strict liability. Strict liability means the defendant is responsible for the injuries caused by the defective product, even if they did not intend to create a defective item or harm consumers. For example, if a manufacturer carefully designs a product with safety in mind, they can still be held liable if a defect leads to injuries or death.
Three types of defects could lead to a product liability case. They include:
If you believe a defective product injured you or your loved one, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Taking prompt action can help your attorney prove the injury resulted from the defective product and not something else. At Buzgon Davis, we encourage you to reach out immediately if you’ve encountered a defective product.
Product liability is complex — but with a lawyer by your side, you don’t have to worry about the legal details. Instead, you can focus on taking care of yourself while your lawyer determines the best argument for your case. Your attorney will also investigate other parties involved, such as the product distributor or retailer, and gather necessary evidence to support your claim.
You didn’t deserve to suffer an injury due to a product defect. The lawyers at Buzgon Davis care and are ready to fight for you.
