What Is a Product Liability Claim?

When you purchase a product, you have the legal right to expect that product to perform as intended without causing you harm. Unfortunately, millions of people are injured each year from products ranging from household appliances, furniture, and vehicles to children's toys, prescription drugs, and medical devices. It is estimated that the cost from defective products is approximately $12 billion each year. When you are injured by a defective product, the law provides a legal remedy in the form of a lawsuit.

What Does Product Liability Law Cover?

Generally speaking, there are three basic kinds of product liability claims:

  • Design Defect Claims refer to an unsafe or dangerously designed product.
  • Manufacturing Defect Claims concern product malfunctions that stem from a flaw in the manufacturing process.
  • Marketing-Related Product Liability Claims cover the failure of a manufacturer or distributor of a product to instruct or warn consumers of the safety practices and less obvious dangers associated with using the product.

Why File a Product Liability Lawsuit?

The law cannot undo the damage caused by a defective product. It can only compensate you with a financial award for your damages. Injury victims are entitled to receive compensation for their damages.

Examples of compensation you may be entitled to:

  • Past, current, and future medical bills
  • Past, current, and future lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional suffering
  • Scarring, disfigurement, and/or permanent disability
  • Funeral, burial, and/or cremation expenses in the event of a death
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the accident and injuries

In addition to receiving compensation for your injuries, filing a product liability lawsuit can help protect others from suffering the same injury and losses you or a loved one have suffered. A lawsuit may result in the recall of a defective product. The lawsuit also serves as a warning to the responsible party and others that they must exercise care to ensure that a product is safe before it's sold.

What Parties Are Potentially Liable in a Product Liability Action?

Several parties may be responsible and liable for a product liability claim. The responsible party is determined by proving what type of defect caused the injury. Depending on the type of defect, one or more parties may be liable for your injuries including the designer, manufacturer, distributor, and retailer. It is crucial to identify all liable parties in a lawsuit to maximize compensation.

What Should I Do If I Am Injured By a Product?

  • Seek medical attention immediately. Your health is the top priority.
  • Keep all of the parts, pieces, packaging, and instructions for the defective product.
  • Save all documentation related to medical treatment including copies of bills and receipts.
  • Take pictures of the product, the accident scene, and your injuries.
  • If there was an eyewitness to the accident, obtain his / her name and contact information.
  • Keep a record of your lost earnings and wages.
  • Contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your legal right to file a product liability claim.
