What Does Product Liability Mean?
When a manufacturer or company allows a dangerous / defective product to enter the market, it can lead to serious injuries and damages to consumers. Product liability law enables the injury victim to hold these parties accountable for failing to warn of safety hazards or selling defective products.
Common examples of product liability cases include:
- A toy that poses a choking or strangulation hazard for young children
- Products or materials that contain lead and may lead to poisoning
- Poor electrical wiring that may result in fires, electrocution, etc.
- Prescription drugs that are dangerous or have adverse side effects
- Defective vehicle products, such as airbags, seatbelts, power steering, tires etc.
- Home appliances that result in fires or other damage
Whether your case falls into one of the categories above or is completely different, our product liability attorney in Franklin can review your case and help you determine the next best step.
How to Prove a Product Liability Claim
Getting injured due to another person’s negligent or reckless behavior can be frustrating and overwhelming at the same time. How do you hold them responsible? How do you ensure your medical bills and expenses are covered? At The Park Law Firm, we understand how challenging these cases can be, which is why we provide caring and compassionate counsel throughout the process. We can help you determine whether you have a claim and help you prove this claim.
For example, you must be able to demonstrate one of the following:
- There was a design defect – The actual design of the product was defective, prior to even manufacturing.
- There was a manufacturing defect – The product became defective during manufacturing or assembly.
- There was a marketing defect – The way the product was marketed was flawed, from failure to warn to lack of clarity on product hazards.
The party responsible for your injuries will likely depend on the type of product liability that applies to your specific case. For example, if the defect occurred during the manufacturing process, you will need to determine who the manufacturer was. In these cases, strict liability may apply, which means you will only need to prove that the product is defective, not that the manufacturer was negligent in some way.
