If you suffered injuries from a dangerous or defective product, then we can seek compensation for you. A product manufacturer, seller, or another party may cover medical expenses and other damages.
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will provide a Gainesville product liability attorney to fight for you.
What does Product Liability Refer To?
“Product liability” refers to manufacturers’, assemblers’, and sellers’ responsibility for the products that they produce. Each party in the chain of a product’s custody has a responsibility: to ensure that the product is safe for the end consumer.
Who Can Bring a Product Liability Case?
You may generally bring a product liability case if:
- You suffered injuries from a dangerous product, or
- Your loved one died because of injuries from a dangerous product.
A product does not have to be defective for you to bring a lawsuit, though this is a common reason for product liability cases. You may also file a product liability claim if:
- The product’s design is dangerous, making it a hazard when no defect is present.
- A product lacks sufficient instructions, exposing users to danger because they do not know how to use it safely.
- A product lacks necessary safety warnings.
Other circumstances may justify you bringing a product liability case.
Who Is Liable for Defective and Dangerous Products?
When we determine liability in product liability cases, we consider why the product was dangerous. The answer to this question may determine who is liable.
Liable parties may include:
- The organization or individual that designed the product
- The organization or individual that manufactured the product
- The organization in charge of labeling or packaging the product
- The business that sold you the product
- Any other party responsible for a product’s dangerous qualities
More than one party may be liable for your damages.
What is the Liability Standard in Product Liability Cases?
Product manufacturers may be strictly liable for the goods that they sell. This sort of liability may extend to:
- Drug manufacturers
- Vehicle and vehicle component manufacturers
- Electronics manufacturers
- Safety equipment manufacturers
- Manufacturers of all other consumer goods
These and other parties may owe you compensation because they were negligent. Negligence refers to unreasonable behavior that endangers others. Negligent parties in product liability cases may include:
- Sellers of used products that prove to be dangerous
- Product manufacturers that fail to conduct adequate safety tests
- Drug manufacturers that release a product without disclosing known side effects
