Product Liability

Have you been injured using a product or device? “Product liability” is a term that is used to describe a product that is unsafe and causes an injury. In other words, a mistake was made in designing the product, in manufacturing the product, or in telling people how to use the product. Because of the mistake, an innocent user or consumer of the product is injured.

Manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of products have a responsibility to the people who use their products. If the product is unsafe and causes an injury, the injured person is entitled to compensation.

Serious injury or death may be caused by a wide variety of defective or unsafe products including:

  • Defective tires (tread separations and blow outs)
  • Cars or SUVS (rollovers, roof crush, seat belts, fuel systems and fires, mechanical failures)
  • Motorcycles (instability, mechanical)
  • All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) (instability, rollovers, mechanical)
  • Trailers and jacks
  • Farm equipment and machinery
  • Industrial equipment and machinery
  • Power tools
  • Firearms
  • Hunting and camping equipment
  • Gas stoves, heaters, fireplaces and grills (fires and explosions)
  • Household products (often electrical)
  • Medical Devices (artificial joints, valvles, equipment, pharmaceuticals)
  • Playground and school equipment
  • Products used by or for babies, infants, or toddlers
  • Toys

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury as a result of a defective, unsafe or dangerous product, keep the defective product in its current condition and try to locate any of the documents or materials that came with the product. You should not discuss the product or the failure that caused the injuries with a representative of the manufacturer or seller of the product until you have discussed the potential claim with a lawyer.
