Understanding Product Liability Claims
A product liability claim arises when a consumer uses a product as intended and sustains an injury due to a defect. If a consumer wins a defective product lawsuit, they can obtain monetary compensation for their injuries.
There are three different types of product liability claims, including:
- Manufacturing defects – This defect happens when there is a problem during the manufacturing process. Typically, a manufacturing defect will only impact one product in the line.
- Design defects – A design defect impacts all of the products in that line due to a problem in the design of the product itself.
- Marketing defects – Manufacturers have a duty to provide appropriate instructions and warnings on products about potential risks.
Our attorneys also have experience representing clients in toxic tort cases. A toxic tort case arises when someone is injured after exposure to toxic, hazardous chemicals or substances. Common examples of toxic tort cases include prescription drugs, pesticides, hazardous waste and asbestos exposure. Toxic tort cases are often complex. Our attorneys will take the time to thoroughly investigate the claim to find innovative legal solutions.
