Product Liability for Defective & Dangerous Products
Lawsuits arising from defective or dangerous products are known as product liability cases. Product manufacturers, manufacturers of component parts, distributors, wholesalers and even the retail store that sold the product to the consumer can be held responsible for a defective product that causes an injury under certain circumstances. Just about any product that causes injury may lead to a product liability claim. Anything from dangerous food products or drugs, to healthcare devices, motor vehicles, firearms, power tools, lawn mowers and appliances can result in injuries to consumers.
Product liability actions can be quite complicated and will require prompt investigation, including an examination of the defective product. Be sure to retain the product and any documentation regarding its purchase, packaging materials, labeling, warnings and instructions.
