How Does a Product Liability Lawsuit Arise?
There are three main ways in which a company can be held responsible for injuries or a wrongful death caused when a person uses a particular product:
Defective design: The design company may be legally responsible for your injuries if a reasonable alternative design, addition or safety features would have prevented or reduced the risk of accident and injury.
Defects in manufacturing: If an industrial or consumer product is designed appropriately, it may still cause injury if mistakes are made when the product is actually built or manufactured. In manufacturing defect cases, it can be difficult to prove that a defect existed if the product was destroyed in the accident. Or, it may be difficult to prove that the defective product — and not some other cause — was responsible for the accident.
Defective warnings: A product manufacturer is required by law to warn consumers about hidden dangers in any particular product. Manufacturers are also required to provide adequate instructions about how to properly use the product to avoid injuries. If either the warnings or instructions are defective, it may help prove your product liability case.
