What is Product Liability?
Product liability is the area of law in which consumers can bring claims against manufacturers and sellers for products that injure people. To sue for product liability, you only need to show 1 of 3 things to hold the manufacturer Liable. You need to show that either they built the product badly- a manufacturing defect they designed the product badly- a design defect or they didn’t warn you about a risk or danger associated with the product- a failure to warn. By digging into the details of what caused harm and how, product liability law provides straightforward ways to establish who is liable for injury.

What is an example of a manufacturing defect product liability case?
Products Liability Attorney MN | Products Liability Lawyers Minneapolis Minnesota | Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben | https://www.reellawyers.com/bill-sieben-2/example-manufacturing-defect-product-liability-case/ | (612) 344-0305 | [email protected] Transcript: Examples of defectively manufactured products are where a company has a protocol for how a product is to be designed, like the tensile strength of the steel that goes into whatever the product is is supposed to be so many pounds, or so many tons. Well, a manufacturing defect is when the tensile strength doesn’t reach that that it was supposed to be, so instead of withstanding 50 pounds of pressure or load, the tensile strength only can withstand 10 pounds. That’s a manufacturing flaw or defect. It wasn’t made the way the manufacturer wanted to make it and the reason. There are dozens of reasons why that can occur. It can occur through error in the manufacturing process, a part of the product was not correctly provided, so there are lots of reasons why the flaw can be there, but it was something that the manufacturer didn’t want to be manufactured in that way. They wanted it to be manufactured a different way. It wasn’t. It was sold to the public in the defective condition that had the flaw in it, and then it caused an injury somehow.

What Are Common Product Defects?
http://www.lawinfo.com/defective-products.html - Courts typically divide product defects into three main categories, which reflect the three main steps of the product creation process. These three types of product defects are: Design flaws, which are problems with the original design that affect every item made from this plan. Manufacturing defects, which are flaws that occur during the manufacturing process that may only affect a single product or a small batch of products, and marketing defects, which are defects or flaws in the way the product is marketed, such as improper labeling, insufficient instructions or inadequate safety warnings. All of these types of defects have the potential to harm you and those you love. You should speak with an attorney to learn more about the next steps to take following an injury from a product defect.

What is Product Liability?
http://www.lawmed.com/cases_we_handle/defective_product/index.php What is product liability? When a person is injured while using a product—any type of product—a good attorney will want to investigate whether there was a problem in the way the product was designed or manufactured. If so, then the injury might have been prevented if not for the defect. If you sustained a serious injury due to a product that malfunctioned or broke, you may want to consult with an attorney. A product liability lawyer will investigate the facts of the case, find out if other people had also been injured by the same product, and figure out whether your injuries were the result of a defect in the product. In this video, HensonFuerst partner David Henson answers basic questions about product liability and defective products. *** Principal Office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607 *** If you have additional questions about product liability injuries, feel free to visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/, and don't forget to look at some of our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. What is product liability? Hi, this is DH with HF Attorneys in North Carolina. While my wife, Carma Henson, and I were getting dressed this morning, her curling iron started sparking and smoking. With catlike reflexes, she quickly unplugged it, dispersed the smoke, and averted all sorts of bad things that could have happened us or to our house. Then, like the well-trained lawyer she is, Carma proceeded to rant that the curling iron was brand new, and that she wanted her money back for that piece of junk. I, on the other hand started thinking about what could have happened had it injured someone in our family, or if it had burned down our down. Then, I thought, let's use this piece of junk to educate folks about Product Liability law and what it is. So....here goes: A defective product is any product that a manufacturer or distributor knew, or should have known, would cause injury in its normal course of use. A claim usually results from either a design defect or a manufacturing defect. Design defects typically focus on the creation phase of the product: • how it was thought up and developed • how it was intended to be constructed and manufactured • whether the designers considered the likely uses of the product • how the designers considered potential failures of the product. Claims relating to the manufacturing phase of the process may relate to: • inadequate quality control • use of substandard materials in construction • assembly of materials in a manner inconsistent with design specifications • how the product was distributed. So, in the context of the burned curling iron, we don't really know what caused it to catch fire and start smoking. Had the injury or damage been severe enough, we could hire an accident reconstruction engineer to take it apart and figure out what happened to it. These independent experts are unbiased scientists who can figure out whether any design, manufacturing, or structural defects occurred in the manufacture of the product. One of my favorite tasks as a lawyer is to go to the offices of accident reconstruction engineers while they are testing defective products. There is nothing quite so entertaining as watching engineers try to make curling irons, toasters, or other defective products catch fire, fail, or break because of shoddy workmanship, construction, or design. Another thing that we do in defective products cases is check whether other people were also injured while using the product. Defects tend to occur more than once, so we start by locating other instances of similar injuries in similar circumstances so that we can build upon the case that we are trying to piece together. In the end, products liability cases are both interesting and challenging. We enjoy knowing that we are helping to improve the safety of products sold in our communities, and it is gratifying to work for clients who need our help in rebuilding their lives. If you have additional questions regarding product liability cases, go to our website at www.lawmed.com . As for me, well...it looks like my job is to try and get our money back for this piece of junk.

Are There Limitations On Recovery For Defective Product Injuries?
http://www.lawinfo.com/defective-products.html - Despite being injured by a product, there are limitations on your recovery potential. You must not have known about the defect before using the product - if you decided to use the product despite the known defect, it may limit your recovery. Use a product in a way that is different than the intended use could also limit recovery depending on if the use was foreseeable or not. Additionally, each state has a different set of statute of limitations, which is the time in which you are allowed to bring your claim. Products liability cases can be very time intensive, costly and detail intensive. To learn what your rights and limitations are, a skilled attorney can give you the advice you need.

John Kelly is a Phoenix personal injury attorney and in this video discusses product liability cases. For more information on product liability visit us at http://www.jkphoenixpersonalinjuryattorney.com/product-liability-injury. Google Hangout answers the question "If I'm injured by a product, what kind of compensation can I expect?" 00:42 Compensation is usually determined by a number of different factors. A lot of times the amount of compensation variable to obtain is based somewhat on the medical expenses that the individual has from the injury. So, if you are injured by a product, your medical expenses are going to be a factor. The treatment you are getting from the medical providers, the number of medical providers that were needed, the nature of the injuries, any future treatment that maybe needed, whether there will be any permanent injuries, all these factors will play a role. Also, things like missed work and pain and suffering that resulted from the injury are considered. We compile all these factors in the end and put them in front of the insurance companies.

How To Win Defective Product Case In Florida?
Attorney Micah Longo of the Davie, Florida law firm The Longo Firm says, “in Florida, a product can be defective because of a manufacturing defect or a design defect. A product is defective because of a manufacturing defect if it is in a condition unreasonably dangerous to the user and the product is expected to and does not reach the user (or consumer) without substantial change affecting that condition. A product is unreasonably dangerous because of a manufacturing defect if it is different from its intended design and fails to perform as safety as the intended design would have performed. In other words, if you got the one toaster that explodes after 5 minutes, then you likely have a manufacturing defect and the manufacture (and seller) are strictly liable for your damages. A product is defective because of a design defect if it is in a condition unreasonably dangerous to the user and the product is expected to and does reach the user without substantial change affecting that condition. A product is unreasonably dangerous because of its design if the product fails to perform as safety as an ordinary consumer would expect when used as intended or when used in a manner reasonably foreseeable by the manufacture and the risk of danger in the design outweighs the benefits. Think of the Ford Pinto - would blow up if rear-ended. This was a design defect.

How to win product liability cases in Virginia
Product liability law governs the liability of manufacturers, designers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers of defective products. Virginia is ranked consistently by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as one of the top two or three pro-business states. One reason is that Virginia’s product liability laws generally favor manufacturers over injured consumers. For example, Virginia does not recognize the theory of strict liability. Moreover, some of our federal court judges seem to have forgotten the Erie doctrine, and are applying product liability law derived from published opinions from other states. Thus, if you have been injured by a defective product, it is extremely important to entrust your case to an experienced Virginia products liability lawyer who not only has mastered Virginia products liability law, but also knows about the traps and pitfalls of practicing in Virginia’s federal courts. Our firm recently resolved for $2 million a products liability case that had been turned down by another firm. Michael Phelan is a former chairman of the Products Liability Section of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and is a sought after lecturer and author on products liability law. Indeed, Mr. Phelan is in the process of writing a chapter for an upcoming Virginia products liability treatise. Phelan Petty, PLC has handled successfully cases involving defective bridge construction devices, meat grinders, after-market gun accessories, paintball guns, table saws, products containing lead paint and other toxins, asbestos-containing products, airbags, after-market motor vehicle lift kits, dental products tainted with benzene, blood products, blood thinning medications, blood clot filters, prescription drugs (including Baycol, Fen-Phen, and Zyprexa), and medical devices (including denture adhesives, Sulzer hip implants, and DePuy hip implants). Unreasonably dangerous products injure thousands of people every year. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 30 million personal injuries and 22,000 deaths are caused by defective products. We are currently investigating and handling the following products liability cases: - Xarelto, a blood thinner causing uncontrollable bleeding events - IVC Filters, which migrate or break and cause internal damage - Takata airbags, which rupture and cause shrapnel injuries - GM and Chrysler ignition switch cases If you have been injured by a defective product, please contact the Virginia products liability attorneys at Phelan | Petty, PLC. 6641 West Broad Street, Suite 406 Richmond, VA 23230 (866) 249-3164 Toll Free (804) 980-7100 Phone www.phelanpetty.com

Product Liability Case Example: Defective Seat Belt Buckle
Attorney Joseph Lyon describes a product liability case from his practice. To learn more about your legal rights, and the resources available in your case, please visit thelyonfirm.com and call 800.513.2403 for more information. "A large part of my practice involves product liability cases. One of the first complex product liability cases I was ever involved in occurred in Mansfield, OH. The primary issue of the case involved a seat belt buckled called the Gen 3 seat belt buckle, which was manufactured by Chrysler. The seat belt buckle was placed into many of their mini-vans and certain jeep models. What was alleged in the case was that the button on the seat belt buckle extended above the casing. As a result, a couple of issues could happen. One, during an accident sequence a hand, elbow, or object could hit the button, which would inadvertently release the latch plate from the buckle. Or two, the latch plate could be inserted underneath this button and wedged into what is known as a false-latch situation. In this particular case we were representing a 14 year old boy who was riding to the airport with his father and his grandmother. A young lady ran a stop sign causing a very high velocity impact, and the seat belt, according to our experts, unlatched during the accident sequence. He suffered a horrific brain injury and catastrophic facial deformity that changed his life forever. As a result of this case, which was a confidential settlement, we were able to secure a certain amount of money that was able to help him move forward, attain the type of educational classes that he needed, attain the plastic surgery he needed, that otherwise would not have been accessible to him. I'm very proud of the work that we did on that early case, I'm proud of the fact that I was able to work with my father, who is also a lawyer at a different firm on that case. I'm also proud of the success that the young man has had as he's moved forward in life. If you or a family member have some suspicion that an automotive product may have contributed to an injury to you or your family, please give me a call. I'm able to research these issues very efficiently, we have access to some of the best experts in the United States that can evaluate these claims, and we can get some answers to you. If it turns out that there is a defect in a product that contributed to the injury, then we will fight to get the type of compensation that will make a difference in your life."

What is the Pre-Suit Process on a Product Liability Case?
To learn more about your legal rights in the case of an injury, please visit thelyonfirm.com or call 800.513.2403 for a free, confidential consultation. "One of the first questions that I'm asked is, "What can I expect from the process?" The process really involves two parts. Number one, we start with the pre-suit investigation of the case. The pre-suit investigation of the case involves obtaining the product that's at issue, assuming that it's available. If you're aware that there may be a product liability issue in your household, it is imperative that the evidence is safely preserved, as a failure to do so may compromise any future litigation. The pre-suit investigation also includes interviewing any family members or friends or witnesses that may have seen the event occur, or can testify related to the impact that the injuries have on the individual's life. Most of the pre-suit investigation is centered around understanding what the liability is or isn't with respect to that product. There is also third party information that needs to be gathered, typically through Freedom of Information Act requests. If it's a case that involves a pharmaceutical product or a medical device issue, we would need to get documents and search through the FDA database to understand the science that served as the basis for approval of that product, and what were the clinical studies that were run, in order to understand whether or not certain issues with respect to the type of injury, or with respect to the approval process itself, may impact which direction the case could go from a factual or legal perspective."

What is a Product Liability Case?
A product liability is the type of case where someone has been injured or killed as a result of a product. The product is a consumer item such as a ceiling fan, automobile, truck or a piece of industrial equipment. They are considered to be any products that are manufactured and put out to the marketplace to be purchased and consumed by the American public. If those products have been designed and/or manufactured in an unreasonably dangerous condition and a death or injury has occurred as a result, the manufacturer is held liable. The causes of action available from a product liability case in Tuscaloosa or anywhere else in Alabama is against the manufacturer or distributor building on its role in the chain of distribution.

Injured on the job? There may be product liability.
Tonight's episode of The Beasley Allen Report takes a look at a case where a construction worker was seriously injured on the job when the equipment he was using did not have proper safety mechanisms. Program host Gibson Vance welcomes Beasley Allen Attorney Mike Andrews, who worked on this case. Often, cases that involve personal injury may be traced back to a defective product (product liability). This area of law examines cases where a product fails and causes injury or death to someone. Mike explains that lawyers explore questions such as whether the product could have been designed differently, manufactured differently, or if there should have been warnings presented to the user to prevent injury. In many cases, Mike says, on-the-job injuries that appear to involve only a Workers Compensation claim turn out to be related to product liability. Following this case, a temporary safety mechanism was installed on the equipment involved in this case, and the manufacturer modified the product design to prevent future injuries.

Preserving Your Car In An Auto Defect Case
Many of us experience car issues, often related to defective parts and auto defects.

Auto parts manufacturers, vehicle makers and other companies many times know about these defects and put their profits in front of their customer's safety. There have been many situations where companies knew about an auto defect or defective product and decided it would cost them less financially to settle and payout lawsuits instead of recalling the defect for repair. Saving your car in an auto defect case is critical. There is a lot of evidence contained on that vehicle. Auto defects can range from seatback failures to defective seatbelts.

There are also a number of resources online as far as finding whether or not a product has been recalled. We have a lot of resources on our website on talking about different types of product defects. It's important that if there's been a severe injury or a catastrophic injury, that you look into it a little bit more that maybe something happened with this vehicle, something out of the norm happened not just your regular collision.

Holding a Manufacturer Responsible for a Defective Product
http://www.MortonLawyers.com We shouldn't have to worry that the products we purchase will harm us; however, sometimes badly designed products make their way into the market. When poorly designed or manufactured products cause harm, a victim may have a product liability case against a manufacturer. Sometimes tires and wheels can be defective, causing explosions that can harm innocent people. For example, the Morton Law Offices represented a client who had been seriously injured when an explosion occurred while attempting to seat a tire on a wheel. The explosion was so violent that it sent the man into the air, causing him to hit his head on the ceiling and suffer serious injuries. As a result of our case preparation and investigation, we were able hold the wheel manufacturer, tire manufacturer, and auto manufacture liable for a defective product . If you have been harmed as a result of a defective product, you may have a claim for damages.

St. Louis Product Liability Attorney
Hello again. Tom here, and this section of the website is dedicated to the Law of Product Liability. So, let's start at the beginning. What is product liability? A product liability lawsuit occurs when an injury or death happens from a defective product. So, what is a defective product? You should know that this is a question many lawyers who claim to handle personal injury cases cannot answer correctly. To answer correctly you need to know three things. There are three categories that cover the "defective products". A product can be defective because: ONE: The product has a manufacturing defect when the product departs from its intended design even though all possible care was exercised in the preparation and marketing of the product. In other words, the product failed because there was a manufacturing defect. So someone builds or assembles a product incorrectly, leaves a component out, or installs a part wrong rendering the product unreasonably dangerous. A very simple example would be a car that has been delivered but with only one lug nut...an accident waiting to happen. TWO: The product contains a design defect that renders it unreasonably dangerous when the harm created by the product could have been reduced or eliminated completely by a reasonable alternative design. This refers to another type of manufacturing defect. In this case, a part is manufactured out of specifications and suddenly fails while in use. Or, a material is substituted that weakens the design and ultimately fails where the original would not have. It doesn't matter if the manufacturer didn't know about the potential for failure and/or they thought they had used the utmost care in the manufacturing process. If their product fails due to that defect and a jury thinks it was unreasonably dangerous, then the manufacturer is liable regardless of its best efforts. Most product recalls are due to a defective part. But, a part or a whole product can become defective by reason of its design. For example somebody designs a part out of composite plastic material but uses a previous design that was for a metal part. Metal and composites plastics react differently in different environments. So the new composite plastic part fails catastrophically. A case such as this involves a host of design issues, and it requires an experienced, expert lawyer to recognize such design defects. THREE: The product has inadequate warnings rendering unreasonably dangerous when put to a reasonably anticipated use. Warnings Labels. We see them on anything we buy and on many things around us every day. So a lack of warnings can cause a product be defective. This happens if a person uses a product in a manner different than the manufacturer intended, but should have anticipated and warned against which makes the product unreasonably dangerous when used in that manner. Some examples, where such incidents have occurred involve having drug administered incorrectly resulting in horrible side effects, or where a weight=bearing product was over-loaded because not clear limits were defined. One final tip: If you have a lawyer tell you that product liability is strict liability...run. That lawyer doesn't know what he or she is talking about. Strict liability is an entirely different area of the law and has nothing to do with product liability.

Attorney Daryl Lewis Discusses Product Defect Litigation
Daryl Lewis, Florida accident attorney, discusses the bad practice of allowing corporations to hide their documents in lawsuits by arguing trademarks and secret documents. This prohibits consumers from knowing about dangerous products and defective vehicles, cars and trucks. In Florida, it is called Litigation in the Sunshine Act.

How Product Liability Cases Are Handled in Texas
Product liability litigation in Texas has become extremely complicated and technical. The rules of law, as well as the rules that have been enunciated by the Texas Supreme Court, continue to make it more and more complicated. The burden is completely on the plaintiff, and it is a requirement that they reconstruct the evidence. It is also a requirement that the bring in all the manufacturers, which are usually not located in the United States. They have to tell the court what the defect is and what would be a safer alternative design. Wyatt Law Firm, Ltd. is located at 70 NE Interstate 410 Loop, Suite 725, San Antonio, TX 78216.

Product Liability Cases - Macon Personal Injury Lawyers
Attorneys Joe Boyd & BJ Survant from the Law Firm of Reynolds, Horne & Survant talks about product liability cases with host Annette Sinclair. Annette asked what else in the way of product liability cases they see normally that comes through. Attorney BJ Survant said the drop side cribs were in the news a lot lately, and now they can't make them anymore because it is illegal. The reason it is now illegal is because so many children died and others become brain injured because their head got stuck. It got to the point that manufacturers can't make them anymore because at some point somebody decided to sue the manufacturer and put them to task to prove why their product was safe and explored other alternative designs which are out there now and people are using them safely. That is one that is in the news now. BJ also said that one of the medicines for breast cancer just got disapproved by the FDA. What happens is there is a product and then the lawyers get involved if there is a lot of injuries, serious injuries and deaths from those products and they move toward litigation and the threat of litigation makes the manufacturer worry about the safety of the products and improve the products and if necessary stop making their products. At the Law Firm of Reynolds, Horne & Survant we have a proven track record of winning large verdicts and settlements for our clients who have been wrongfully injured or killed due to the negligence of others. http://www.wcrpc.com *The information you obtain at this site is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice.
