Product Liability Information
A wide variety of product liability information is available to you through a product liability lawyer. There are several reasons a product may be considered defective. These include the following:
- A product is manufactured poorly
- A product is functioning properly but is designed in a way that it causes injuries during normal use
- The manufacturer failed to provide information on how to properly use the product or warnings about the consequences of certain kinds of use
- The manufacturer makes a misrepresentation concerning the product which results in injuries
Product Liability Litigation
A product liability lawsuit holds manufacturers to strict liability standards. This means that regardless of how much care was used in the creation of the product, if a consumer is injured, the manufacturer is liable for those injuries. Others that might be held liable include the companies that participated in the marketing, distribution or sale of the defective product.
Any product can be defective, including:
- Automobile defects, including faulty brakes or tires
- Food-born illnesses such as salmonella or E. Coli
- Defective prescription drugs such as Darvon or Darvocet, Vioxx and RU-486
- Defective medical devices such as the Ortho Evra patch and Bard Mesh Patch
