There are several major types of claims of product liability, including manufacturer defect, design defect, and failure to warn, also commonly referred to as marketing defects. These claims are based on bad workmanship or poor-quality materials, inherently dangerous or defective product design, and failure to warn the consumer of non-obvious and inherent dangers of a product, respectively.
The manufacturer of a product has a duty to produce a product that is as safe as possible to the public. If this cannot be achieved, the manufacturer has the legal obligation to warn and notify users and buyers adequately of the dangers associated with the use of the product. Usually, product liability laws are overseen by state law, though federal law can preempt state control in certain cases. During a product liability lawsuit, the plaintiff will need to prove his or her case of injury or damage caused by a product under the laws of product liability.
Depending on the nature and complexity of your product liability case, and the particular manufacturer or seller of the defective product, a product liability lawsuit can be a drawn out process, especially if the defendant is a large company with an experienced legal team. These lawsuits can become very expensive for the plaintiff fighting for a product liability lawsuit settlement. Not only are there legal expenses, including attorney and legal experts fees, and filing fees, but there may also be costly medical, travel and living expenses that need to be covered during this type of lawsuit.
