Product Liability occurs when the manufacturer or seller of a product puts a defective product in the hands of a consumer, and injury occurs. Dangerous or defective products are the cause for thousands of personal injury accidents in the United States each year. Responsibility for such injuries always lies in the hands of the product seller within the distribution chain of the particular product. This is possible through the “Product Liability Law.” The law states that a product must always meet the consumer’s expectations. When the product poses any sort of danger, or is clearly damaged, the product liability law kicks in to help the injured person recover any losses or damages caused by the accident. It is important to understand that there is no federal product liability law, as theories of such cases are based on state laws regarding negligence. The lawyers at Kantrowitz, Goldhamer, and Graifman P.C. have extensive experience in cases of product liability, and can help fight for the case outcome you deserve.
An important step in any product liability case is understanding the specific defect of your product. For example, the product could have a design defect, meaning that the damage was present before the product was even manufactured, and a characteristic within the design of the product makes it unsafe. Another type of defect could fall under manufacturing. This means that an error occurred sometime during the product’s assembly in the factory or warehouse. A third type of defect your product could encounter is a marketing defect. Such situations could involve lack of safety warnings, mislabeling, or unclear instructions.
Product liability cases can be tricky, because there are a few instances where the defendant can stand their ground. For example, the defense can try to say that a product was altered after it left the manufacturer, placing the blame on the plaintiff. It is very important for the injured consumer to pay close attention to detail in this matter. They must take photos, save any and all documentation, and find the best possible representation to support their case.
