What Is A Product Liability Claim?
A product liability claim aims to collect compensation from the manufacturer or seller of a defective product. These claims are generally filed by product liability attorneys on behalf of clients who have experienced personal injury while using a given product. A product liability claim will generally be based on one of three arguments. First, the product may have a design defect – that is, a part of the design may be inherently hazardous. Second, there may be a manufacturing defect, which means that the product was produced incorrectly. Finally, the product may be insufficiently labeled. A product with no safety warnings that poses a risk if used incorrectly falls into this category.
Product liability claims can be based on the principle of negligence. However, your attorney will also likely develop a case based on strict liability. Whereas establishing negligence requires showing that the manufacturer violated a responsibility to the customer, strict liability simply requires showing that the actions of the manufacturer or seller caused the defect that was responsible for the injury or damage in question.
