Designers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers are responsible to consumers for producing safe products. When a company fails to adhere to safety standards and injuries result, you may be entitled to compensation.

How product liability is different from other personal injury claims

Unlike many types of personal injury claims, product liability claims do not necessarily require proof of negligence. You can often recover for injuries that occurred even if the companies that designed, produced or sold the products acted with care and in good faith. Your claim might be covered under other legal standards, such as:

  • Negligence — Corporations are held liable for careless manufacturing mistakes or design defects that cause injury.
  • Breach of warranty — Companies make guarantees to consumers that their products are safe. When you are injured while using a product as intended, the company may have breached its warranty to you.
  • Strict liability — The doctrine of strict liability recognizes that consumers have the right to purchase and use products with the expectation that they are safe.
  • Recalls and safety standards

Product liability lawsuits have in many ways changed consumer safety across the country. By exposing the dangers of a product to the public, you improve industry safety standards as you recover financial compensation for the injuries that have affected you and your family. Sadly, many products are only recalled or made safe after a consumer was injured or killed.

Types of products involved on product liability lawsuits

Product liability cases are not limited to only one type of product. In fact, there are many different types of products that can be involved in a product liability case, including:

  • Children’s toys
  • Medical devices
  • Motor vehicle parts
  • Machinery
  • Power tools
  • Defective and dangerous drugs
  • Electrical appliances
  • Explosives and fireworks
  • Computer equipment
  • Industrial equipment

Regardless of the type of product that caused your injuries, you should contact a law firm that has experience representing victims injured by faulty products to determine your rights and assess whether your case should be pursued in court.
