Products Liability Law- Can I Make A Claim?
The law makes sure that manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers are accountable when consumers are injured because of their products.
Most product liability claims are based on negligence, strict liability and other kinds of consumer protection claims.
Different kinds of liability claims include, but not limited to:
- Manufacturing Defects. This can be the use of poor quality materials or when the product is different from its intended design causing danger and harm to the consumer.
- Design Defects. This is when a product’s design can become dangerous or hazardous to the consumer even if the product is made with the best-quality materials.
- Marketing Defects. This pertains to products that carry no warnings for consumers when a product poses a threat or risk to them.
Cases like these can prove to be difficult and challenging; it’s essential to choose a reliable and experienced product defect attorney when you are in this kind of situation. Proving your injury is due to a defective product is no easy task, but we can help you present a successful claim.
