Product Liability

We expect the products we use every day to be safe. After all, they are regulated by the government, right? But sometimes the products you rely upon, even those from trusted brands, can injure you in unforeseen ways.

What is Product Liability, or Unsafe Products?

Product liability law makes sure that manufacturers are held accountable if their products injure consumers. Different types of product liability claims include design defects, manufacturing defects, breach of warranty, and failure to provide a warning.

At Maxwell Graham, we’ve successfully taken on some of the world’s biggest companies to win justice for our wronged clients.

What Should I Do After an Injury?

If you think you’ve been injured by an unsafe product, prioritize your health and seek medical attention immediately. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent, and a healthcare professional can assess and document your condition.

If possible, take clear photographs of the product, the scene of the incident, and any injuries you sustained. Visual documentation can be valuable evidence. Keep the product in its current condition, along with any packaging and receipts. This evidence may be crucial in establishing liability.

Who is Liable?

Manufacturers are liable in the following situations:

  • The product design was not “reasonably safe.”
  • The product was distributed in a condition that was different from the standards of the manufacturer for goods of the same product line.
  • The manufacturer did not provide adequate warnings.
  • The manufacturer did not exercise reasonable care to alert consumers of danger after a defect in the product was discovered.

Product sellers, who are not manufacturers, are liable in the following situations:

  • The seller’s negligence caused the product to be unsafe.
  • The seller breached an express product warranty.
  • The seller misrepresented the product or concealed important information about it.
  • There is no manufacturer in the state to be held liable.
  • The court deems it unlikely that the claimant would be able to recover damages from the manufacturer.

All consumer goods are covered under product liability law.
