Active Product Liability Cases
What is product liability law?
Product liability law protects consumers from harm related to defective or dangerous products. Potentially harmful products could include
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- Children’s toys
- Recreational equipment
- Household devices
- Auto parts or vehicles
- Residential appliances, and many others
In addition, products may be deemed harmful based on defective design, a manufacturer’s failure to warn of safety risks, or manufacturing errors.
Your product liability lawyer can stand by you and handle your case
Proving your right to compensation in product liability cases can be complex for several reasons. First, major corporations and even smaller companies are often prepared with substantial resources to defend themselves from lawsuits. Secondly, depending on the case, you may need to take different approaches to presenting evidence and proving your right to compensation.
Sometimes, companies may be held responsible based on a theory known as strict liability. In other cases, though, a plaintiff must prove that a company was negligent. Your lawyer can explain what these concerns mean for your case and help you seek damages.
