Product Liability

Consumers rely on hundreds of products each day … food products, health products, vehicles, electronic products, products for the home, leisure products, and many more. As consumers, we trust that the products will be safe for our use or consumption.

However, sometimes a product is not safe or fit for the purpose for which it was purchased. The product may be defective or, perhaps, not properly designed in the first place. Unfortunately, people can suffer injury from the defective product. Occasionally, homes suffer fires or destruction from faulty products.

When a person suffers injury or property is damaged due to defective product manufacturing or defective product design, it is necessary to determine who is responsible for the injury or property damage. The manufacturer, distributor, and vendor of the product all owe a duty to the consumer to manufacture, distribute, or sell only reasonably safe products otherwise they may be liable for any damage or injury suffered by the consumer.

If you have been injured or suffered property damage as a result of a faulty or defective product, there are steps you should take including:

We recommend that you call a lawyer to provide you with advice regarding your legal rights in the event that you are injured or suffer property damage from a defective product.
