Dangerously defective products injure an estimated 38.9 million Americans each year. In the news, we see constant recalls of household goods, vehicle parts, and pharmaceutical drugs. The manufacturers who profit from the sale of these products are responsible for ensuring that their goods are safe for consumer use. This includes following proper design and manufacturing guidelines to eliminate dangerous defects, as well as labeling their products to sufficiently warn consumers of possible dangers.
When defects in the design, manufacturing or warning labels of a product cause injuries or death, the manufacturers of component parts, assembling manufacturers, wholesalers, and/or retailers may be held liable under the law.
Challenges of Defective Products Cases
Product liability cases are typically more involved due to the number of parties that potentially contribute to the manufacture and sale of a defective product. Also, these cases often deal with extremely technical or scientific issues. The plaintiff must clearly prove that the product directly caused the injuries, that the injuries would have been avoided if the product was properly designed or manufactured, and that the defendant could not have reasonably foreseen and prevented the injuries.
