What Is Product Liability?
According to the doctrine of product liability, any or all parties involved in the design, manufacture, and marketing of a defective product may be held responsible for whatever injuries result from the use of the product. These parties must take reasonable measures to ensure that a product does not pose any unforeseeable hazards to consumers when used for its intended purpose.
Considerations in Product Liability Cases
There are several things to consider in determining whether to file a product liability lawsuit. First, there is no federal product liability law. Instead, claims are handled on the state level. Therefore, it is crucial to hire an attorney experienced in product liability laws. Second, the victim must be able to prove that a flaw in the product, not his or her own misuse of the product, caused the injury. Since the defense will work aggressively to prove that the consumer caused his or her own injury, it is crucial that victims hire an attorney who is able to present the most compelling case possible on his or her behalf.
Contact York Law Corporation if you have a potential product liability or defective product case. Our attorneys serve the North Bay Area, including Sacramento, Fairfield, and surrounding areas.
Types of Defective Product Cases
While defective product law applies to any consumer product, many claims arise from injuries caused by defective motor vehicle parts, prescription drugs toys, food products, and household products. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury, auto, large truck, and motorcycle accident law, medical malpractice law, premises liability law, and personal injury laws may come to bear on a defective product claim.
