Product Liability Claims
“Products” are defined very broadly under the law and includes machinery and tools, medical devices; food and tobacco; toxic chemicals and substances. Products such as pesticides, asbestos, and mold; firearms; autos and other motor vehicles; including trucks and motorcycles; automobile accessories such as tires, seat belts, airbags, and child car seats; household products and appliances; toys and recreational equipment; and clothing and apparel are also within the definition. The following are three ways in which products can be the center of a products liability lawsuit:
- Design defect
- Manufacturing defect
- Marketing defect
If you had an incident with a product that caused an injury or are the survivor of someone who may have died from the use or exposure to a dangerous or defective product, it is important that you know your rights under the law.
