When a product is brought to market, everyone in the “supply chain” has a duty to provide a reasonably safe product when used as intended. When an individual is injured or dies because of a hazardous or defective product, the manufacturers or suppliers can be held liable for failing in their duty – this is the foundation for product liability claims. To receive compensation (damages) for a claim, it must be proven that the:
- Product had an “unreasonably dangerous” defect that caused the injury, and that the defect occurred because of a design flaw or a problem in the manufacturing process, or damage occurred during shipping or handling.
- Injury was caused by the defect even though the product was used as the manufacturer specified.
- Product that caused damage was not changed “substantially” from its original sales condition.
Product liability suits are generally “strict liability” claims that allow a person injured by a defective or unpredictably dangerous product to recover compensation without proving that the manufacturer or seller was actually negligent. Other forms of product liability claims are negligence (carelessness, recklessness or malice) or breach of warranty of fitness (damage directly resulting from inadequate product warning). Each of these types of lawsuits has its’ own virtues and disadvantages.
If you believe that you have a product liability claim, it is important to discuss your case with a product liability law firm that can recommend the best strategies for proving your claim. As the victim of an unsafe product, you may be entitled to lost wages (current and future), medical expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering. As the survivor of someone killed by a defective product, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death suit.
