Product liability refers to the legal repercussions a manufacturer faces if they release a damaged or otherwise improperly functioning product onto the market. If an individual uses a defective product as intended and receives injury due to the product's poor design, they may qualify for a product liability lawsuit. Additionally, the failure of a manufacturer to appropriately warn consumers of known hazards or dangers regarding the product's use, such as with the use of color-coded warning labels, may also be cause for a defective product case, even if the product is structurally sound.
Product liability lawsuits are designed to help you seek compensation for the injuries you suffered and the resulting financial burdens they caused. These may include, among others:
Depending on the details of your case, there are different types of defective product claims we can help you pursue. Strict liability cases, in which the manufacturer is held responsible whether or not there was intent to harm, are the most common. However, if we suspect that the manufacturer was careless in the creation of their product, a negligence case may apply. The manufacturer may also be held responsible for breach of warranty if it is found that they expressed or implied a certain level of protection associated with the use of the product. The team at RAWLaw can help you determine the appropriate type(s) of product liability case(s) for your circumstances.
