Defective Products / Product Liability

Defective product litigation, also known as product liability litigation, arises from death or personal injuries caused by products that are unreasonably dangerous. An unreasonably dangerous product can result from

  • a defect in the design of the product,
  • an error in the manufacturing of the product,
  • or even the failure to place proper safety devices on a product.

Physical injuries, such as paralysis from spinal injuries, broken bones, closed head injuries, and other catastrophic injuries can be devastating to the victims and their families.

Most states allow several means by which an injured victim, or a family who has suffered the death of a loved one, can establish liability where a defective product has caused injury. These include:

  • causes of action for negligence,
  • breach of warranty, and
  • strict liability.
