Individuals are injured by the things that they buy every day. An injury that results from defective or dangerous products that land in the hands of the consumer may be cause for a product liability claim. While some of these injuries occur from intentional or mistaken misuse, many of them are a result of manufacturer errors. In these cases, if you are injured as a result of poor product design or manufacturing defects, or even a product that contains dangerous materials, you may have a case against one of the many parties involved in making and selling the product. Evergreen Personal Injury Counsel uses state-of-the-art technology, national experts, and in-house legal expertise to show juries how and why product injuries occur, how they could have been prevented, and what the effects are on those who have been seriously injured.
What is Product Liability?
Product liability is the liability of a product’s manufacturer or seller that occurs when a defective or dangerous product lands in the hands of a consumer. Responsibility for injury-causing defects lies with all sellers in the distribution chain. Law requires that products must meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer for that particular product. When unexpected defects or danger come into the picture, the product cannot be said to meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer.
Product liability in the modern distribution and supply chain environment fall to any of the following parties, depending on the case:
- Product manufacturer
- A component part manufacturer
- A product assembler or installer
- Retail store selling the product to consumers
