Product Liability

While accidents such as this may be due to negligence on the part of an individual responsible for safety, some accidents can be the result of a defective, contaminated or dangerous product. Products liability law is a specific area of the law focused on products that cause serious and sometimes fatal injury to unknowing consumers.

The key elements of a products liability case include:

  • Discovering the product defect – After someone is injured or killed by a product, the actual defect that caused the injury must be identified
  • Identifying the responsible parties – This can be the designer, manufacturer, or other individual involved in the product’s production and distribution
  • Proving their negligence

Product liability cases hold responsible those that manufacture defective or dangerous products. Sometimes, product liability cases affect thousands or millions of people and may be pursued as mass tort claims or class action lawsuits. In other cases, only a few individuals are affected.
