Pinpointing product liability

Defective products are regularly in the news. We’ve read about fresh produce laced with E. coli, contaminated pet food, toys with lead paint, unsafe cribs and drugs with dangerous side effects. But these are only a small fraction of the thousands of defective products and drugs that make it to store shelves.

In some cases, products are imported from countries with inadequate safety guidelines. Other times, human error is to blame, or defects occur due to poor design, or inferior parts or ingredients. In all of these cases, when a defective product causes illness, injuries or death, any party involved in the design, manufacture or marketing of that product may be held legally responsible. This is known as product liability.

Video Transcript for the Hearing Impaired:

A defective product is one which is considered under the law, to be unreasonably dangerous or hazardous to a consumer. And the law says that a product is unreasonably dangerous when there is a manufacturing defect, or a design defect, or where you have a product that is manufactured properly, but it does not come with the appropriate or adequate warnings and instructions. If you believe you may have been injured by a defective product, you want to get in touch with us immediately. Again, the manufacturer of these products, they will begin their investigation rapidly. What happens is, when they do that, evidence begins to disappear because time goes by. So anytime you think there may be a product which caused an injury or a death, you want to get in touch with a lawyer immediately.
