Product Liability FAQs

Who is legally responsible for a defective product?

To answer this question completely, it’s important to understand that every product undergoes a long journey before it makes it to a consumer or user. First, the product has to be planned out by engineers or designers; even simple items like tea kettles require precise calculations for their dimensions. Secondly, the product has to be manufactured. That tea kettle has to be assembled from plans made by the designers. Thirdly, the product has to be sold to consumers by stores or wholesalers. A product can become defective and dangerous at any stage in this process. If a designer creates an unsafe tea kettle with a spout that pours boiling water onto your hand instead of into your mug, the designer would be held legally liable. On the other hand, if a manufacturer used low-quality materials that caused the kettle to melt, the factory would be responsible. Finally, if a store puts up a sign that claims the tea kettle can be used on a stove when it can’t, the distributor would be liable.

I was injured by a product, but I’m not sure if it was “defective.” How can I tell?

It can be exceptionally difficult for an average person to determine whether they have a winnable legal case on their hands after they have been injured by a product. Unfortunately, many people simply assume that their injury is solely their fault, especially if they were working with heavy machinery or dangerous equipment. If you suspect that your injury might have been caused by a problem with the product, you should consult with a product liability attorney. A skilled lawyer will be able to help you figure out whether another party—a designer, manufacturer, or distributor—can be held liable for your injury. Not only do product liability lawyers have experience figuring out whether the product’s creation and marketing met legal standards, but they can find experts to examine the item for problems.

Is it financially worth it to take a product liability case to court?

Many people assume it’s not worth taking a big company to court, even when they have been injured by a clearly defective product. These people miss out on recovering the costs of their injury in the form of damages. “Damages” typically means a sum of money a court orders a defendant to pay you. You can receive financial compensation for a wide range of problems that arise when you are injured by a defective product. The court might award you money to cover the expenses of the injury. Hospital debt and future medical costs can be covered. So can wages from time you missed off work due to recovery. If the defective product caused any property damage, your lawyers can fight to get that money back, too. Additionally, the court can also give you damages based on any pain and suffering your injury caused.
