Proving Product Liability
To establish negligence on the part of the company that designed, manufactured or distributed the product in question, you must prove that:
- A duty for a safe and effective product was owed;
- That duty was breached due to the intentional or unintentional behavior of the manufacturer;
- The breach of duty resulted in personal injury;
- Financial, physical, and emotional damages were suffered as a result of the injury
With product liability, proving negligence relies on identifying factors such as manufacturing defects, initial design defects, or a failure to warn of potential dangers. This may include the use of poor material in manufacturing, inherently dangerous designs, or failure to properly warn of the product's risk to consumers.
Types of Defective Products
Many product liability lawsuits are brought against the manufacturers of defective drugs and medical devices. However, any product that results in harm when used as intended may provide you with cause to file suit. Examples of goods that often reach consumers with product defects or inadequate safety warnings include:
- Children's items such as car seats, strollers, and toys
- Motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts
- Household appliances
