When a person is harmed because of an unsafe or defective item, they may suffer serious injuries and other long-term consequences. These types of injury claims are referred to as “product liability” claims. These claims are usually filed against a manufacturer and/or retailer whose negligence contributed to the injury.
Product liability lawsuits commonly involve products such as vehicles, cribs and other baby products, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, medical devices, medical equipment, tainted foods, household products, toys, appliances, and even fireworks.
How do products become dangerous? Some defective products are produced due to a manufacturing mistake, while others have design flaws that make them inherently prone to causing injury. In other cases, products may not have been advertised correctly or the company that made or sold the product did not properly warn users of foreseeable dangers or how to safely use their product.
