Common product liability cases?
Defective products cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year. When product defects are discovered, the government and/or manufacturers may list product recalls or issue warning notices to consumers who have purchased that product. For example, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission lists product recalls on their website, and product recalls are regularly announced on radio, television, and in magazines.
Defective products can include anything; motor vehicles, tires, brakes, air bags, sports equipment, household appliances, tools, toys, prescription drugs, food, fruit, and work machines to name a few. And just because a manufacturer, supplier or seller says they're not legally responsible for any injuries caused by their products, that doesn't excuse them from all liability for their products in many cases.
Products liability cases fall into three basic categories:
- Design defects
- Insufficient instructions or warnings regarding usage
- Manufacturing defects
Whether you have a valid products liability case depends upon whether the product was defective or unexpectedly dangerous - not just whether you were injured as a result of using the item. If you can prove that the product causing your injuries was unreasonably dangerous or defective, then you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
A product may be considered to be unreasonably dangerous if the product fails to perform safely as an ordinary person would expect when it was used as intended, or if the product fails to perform as the manufacturer reasonably expected, or if the risk of danger in the product's design outweighs its benefits. You may also have a case if the manufacturer failed to warn consumers of the risks associated with the product.
