What is Product Liability?
Product liability is when a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer is held responsible for putting a piece of defective product into the hands of consumers. Product liability laws are put into place so that consumers like you can be protected in case you are injured by a product. It also makes it so that the defective product can be taken off the market or redesigned so that no other consumers become injured!
We Will Help You Determine Who Is Responsible
In order for product liability to apply, the defective product must have been sold in the marketplace. Most state laws have verbiage that ensures that the injured person does not have to be the purchaser of the product in order to recover damages. Figuring out who is to blame in a defective product case can be difficult. That is because every product has a chain of distribution that starts with the designer and ends with the consumer. That chain includes:
- The product manufacturer
- The manufacturer of the parts that were used for the product
- The party that assembled the product
- The wholesaler that sold the product to retail stores
- The retail store that sold the product to the consumer
Once your lawyer has determined who is responsible for your injury, they will call in expert witnesses to testify to prove that the product was being in the way it was intended to be used at the time of injury and that the product is defective. Taking legal action not only helps you to get the compensation that you need to pay your medical bills and cover any other damages, it helps others who have either been injured by or could have been injured by the product that you used.
