Standing Up For Victims Of Defective Products

Product liability claims are different from typical negligence claims. Unlike auto accident cases and other personal injury cases, which typically require a plaintiff to prove that their injury was caused by the carelessness of another, designers, manufacturers and distributors of products that pose an unreasonable risk of harm to consumers may be held responsible under a strict liability standard.

Designers, manufacturers, and distributors may even be held responsible if a consumer misused the product, so long as it was foreseeable that the product could be used in that way and no steps were taken to safeguard the consumer against foreseeable harms. Due to the complex nature of products liability claims and the costs associated with demonstrating responsibility, a person injured by a defective product should retain an experienced products liability attorney who can advocate effectively on his or her behalf.
