Product liability law holds the manufacturer or vender liable for injuries caused by a defective item. When a consumer purchases a product, they expect it to be safe and effective. Even though manufacturers have a responsibility to provide consumers with safe products, they are sometimes more concerned with making a profit.
Whether it’s a car, toy or a household object, as a consumer you expect the goods that you purchase to be manufactured so that they are safe you to use. Sadly, thousands of consumers are injured every year by poorly designed and manufactured items that they use at directed by the manufacturer. If a consumer has been injured while using a product, they may be able to file a product liability lawsuit.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, it is advisable to contact a skilled product liability lawyer to review your claim.

Types of Product Liability Lawsuits
There are three main types of liability lawsuits - defective product design, defective product manufacturing or failure to warn of product defect.
- Defective design - meaning that the product’s design is inherently dangerous or useless
- Defective manufacturing - is when the defects occur during the product’s manufacturing or construction phase
- Failure to warn of defects - which occurs when the labeling or instructions fail to warn the consumer about the dangers of the product
