What is a Product Liability Claim?
Defective product cases fall under product liability law – legal issues that arise after a dangerous or faulty item causes an injury. In these cases, the responsibility of the accident lies with one or more of the following parties:
- The product manufacturer
- A manufacturer involved in creating parts of the item
- The party who was responsible for assembling and/or installing the product
- The wholesaler
- The retail store who sold the defective product to the consumer
Product liability cases often find their origins with products such as automobiles, pharmaceutical drugs, infant or baby products, power tools, electrical equipment, airplanes, construction equipment and other machinery. Producers or distributors have a strict liability to do right by consumers if they have caused injury or damage to them as the result of a faulty product.
In cases such as these, the consumer may be able to recover compensation for economic and non-economic losses, lost wages or profits, and damage to property.
