What is a Products Liability Lawyer

A product liability lawyer is a legal professional who handles cases related to injuries or damages caused by defective or unsafe products. These attorneys focus on holding manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and other parties accountable when their products cause harm to consumers.

Key responsibilities and aspects of product liability lawyers include:

  1. Defective Products:
    • Identifying and handling cases involving products that are defective in design, manufacturing, or marketing.
  2. Consumer Protection:
    • Advocating for consumers who have suffered injuries or financial losses due to using a defective product.
  3. Legal Knowledge:
    • Possessing in-depth knowledge of product liability laws, regulations, and precedents to effectively navigate and litigate cases.
  4. Investigation:
    • Conducting thorough investigations into the circumstances surrounding the defective product, including gathering evidence, consulting expert witnesses, and interviewing witnesses.
  5. Determining Liability:
    • Identifying and establishing liability among the various parties in the product supply chain, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and sometimes even designers or marketers.
  6. Legal Claims:
    • Pursuing legal claims on behalf of clients against the responsible parties, seeking compensation for injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
  7. Class Action Lawsuits:
    • Handling or participating in class-action lawsuits when multiple individuals have been affected by the same defective product.
  8. Negotiation and Settlement:
    • Negotiating with opposing parties, such as manufacturers or insurers, to reach fair settlements for clients without going to trial, when possible.
  9. Litigation:
    • Representing clients in court if a settlement cannot be reached, presenting the case, cross-examining witnesses, and arguing on behalf of the injured party.
  10. Product Recalls:
    • Advising clients on potential product recalls and participating in legal actions related to such recalls.
  11. Strict Liability:
    • Applying the legal concept of strict liability, which holds parties responsible for defective products regardless of negligence, in certain product liability cases.

Product liability lawyers play a crucial role in ensuring that consumers are protected from dangerous or faulty products, and they contribute to holding accountable those responsible for bringing such products to market. These cases often involve complex legal and technical issues, and product liability lawyers use their expertise to navigate the legal landscape and seek justice for their clients.

Types of Product Liability Cases Covered by Our Firm

The most common types of product liability claims typically fall into three main categories, each associated with a different type of defect. These categories are:

  1. Defective Design:
    • Claims related to products that have an inherent flaw or defect in their design, making them unreasonably dangerous for consumers even before the manufacturing process begins. Examples include:
      • Cars with a design that makes them prone to rollovers.
      • Children’s toys with small parts that pose a choking hazard.
      • Prescription drugs with dangerous side effects due to the chemical composition.
  2. Manufacturing Defects:
    • Claims arising from errors or defects that occur during the manufacturing or production process, leading to a product that deviates from its intended design. Examples include:
      • Contaminated food or beverages due to errors in the production line.
      • Auto parts that were not manufactured to the intended specifications, leading to failures.
      • Medications with incorrect dosages due to mistakes in the manufacturing process.
  3. Failure to Warn (Marketing Defects):
    • Claims based on a failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions about the proper use of a product, leading to potential dangers or misuse. Examples include:
      • Medications that do not include proper warnings about potential side effects.
      • Appliances that lack clear instructions for safe operation.
      • Consumer products without proper labels indicating potential hazards.

It’s important to note that some product liability cases may involve a combination of these defects. Additionally, product liability claims can cover a wide range of products, including vehicles, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, household appliances, children’s toys, and more.

To pursue a product liability claim, the injured party typically needs to demonstrate that the product was defective, that the defect caused their injuries, and that they were using the product as intended or in a foreseeable manner. These cases often require the experience of product liability lawyers and may involve complex legal and technical considerations.
