Products liability cases are a class of lawsuits that relate to the liability of any or all parties involved with the manufacturing, distribution or sale of a product that has resulted in damage to the purchaser, or a related party, and is caused by the product. If you were harmed by a defective product, the state's product liability laws can help you obtain compensation for your injuries. Parties that can be potentially liable for a products liability claim can include the manufacturer, distributor, assembly manufacturer, wholesaler, or store owner. A case for Products liability typically requires the following:
The sale of the product to the injured party
The defendant is a commercial seller of the product
The purchaser or a related party is injured
At the time of sale the product was defective
The product's defect was the cause of the injury
Some examples of product liability cases are: auto accidents that result from defective car parts; medical injuries or issues that arise from defective medical devices; unsafe toys that the buyer reasonably expected to be safe for children; batteries in phones and laptops explode; drugs that are rushed to the market and result in serious side effects or life-threatening injury.
