Defective Product Injury
Every year we buy hundreds of items, such as food, drugs, electronics, and furniture, to name a few, without much thought about safety. However, defective or dangerous products cause thousands of injuries every year. Manufacturers, distributors, sellers, and any other company providing a product to consumers have a duty to ensure that these products meet the ordinary expectations of consumers.
Types of Defects That May Cause Injury
There are three types of defects that may cause injury, entitling consumers to commence a claim based on what is called “product liability”:
- defects in design
- defects in manufacturing
- defects in marketing, such as errors in labeling, instructions, or safety warnings
If you’ve been injured from a product, you’ll need to prove that the product was defective or unreasonably dangerous and that your injury was caused by the product. It’s important to retain as much evidence as you can to help prove your claim. Making a claim for product liability can be based in tort law for negligence, contract law for a breach of warranty, or in both tort and contract. Manufacturers can be held liable for injuries or damage that should have been foreseeable. Distributors can be held liable for failing to take reasonable care inspecting, testing, or purchasing a product.
