Wrongful Death" Manufacturers, Distributors, and Retailers have to produce, distribute and sell safe products 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. Suppose they had prior knowledge of the danger of the product but continue to place it in the marketplace. In that case, they may be liable for punitive damages awarded to punish the offender for deterring such wrongful conduct in the future. Theories of Recovery Three theories support a Product Liability Claim for a dangerous or defective product: (1) negligence; (2) strict liability; and (3) 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 an injury. In a strict liability case, the consumer must only show that the product was dangerous or defective and that it caused the 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 that such breach caused the injury.
