Product Liability

Product Liability Claims

Manufacturers, Distributors, and Retailers have a duty to produce, distribute and sell products that are safe for consumers. When that duty is breached and you suffer an injury, they are liable under Product Liability Law. If you are injured from a dangerous or defective product, you are entitled to recover your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. If they had prior knowledge of the danger of the product but continue to place it in the marketplace, they may be liabile for punitive damages which are damages awarded to punish the offender to deter such wrongful conduct in the future.

Theories of Recovery

There are three theories that support a Product Liability Clalim for a dangerous or defective product, negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. Under negligence the consumer must show that the defendant had a duty to manufacture, distribute, or sell a safe product, that the defendant breached said duty, that the breach of duty was the proximate cause of the injury, and that the consumer suffered injury. In a strict liability case the consumer must only show that the product was dangerous or defective and it caused injury. In a breach of warranty case, the consumer must show that the product came with an express or implied warranty, that the defendant breached the warranty, and such breach caused injury.
