product liability & defective products
From teddy bears to yachts, any product that causes harm and suffering due to negligence, defect or breach of warranty.
Pharmaceutical companies that recall their medications are seeking to lessen the number of product liability suits that are filed against them. The same goes for children's toys that contain a harmful element. Product liability claims can be filed for the following reasons:
- Design – the way the product was designed has made it dangerous – whether it's the product itself or its packaging.
- Instructions – the instructions included with the product fail to warn the user of possible dangers or the consequences of improper use.
- Manufacturing – there is some material used in the product that has made it dangerous; faulty wiring, poor construction, etc.
Each state has a different definition of what constitutes product liability, and there is a statute of limitations for filing a product liability lawsuit.
