What constitutes products liability?
Products liability is a broad term that is associated with many different forms of negligence. We need to look at the product that harmed you and decide which category of liability this falls under in order to effectively handle your case.
The different types of products liability include:
- Defectively manufactured products — This type of liability includes products that are designed safely by the company, but because of inferior materials or careless workmanship, become harmful to the consumer. These differ from products that are designed with an inherent risk of injury built into them. Defective products aren’t just a danger to you; they are a danger to everyone around you, especially when defective auto parts are involved that could cause serious car or motorcycle accidents.
- Poorly designed products — A product with a design flaw has a built-in danger to the consumer that can cause serious injuries. This type of defect is often found in products that have sharp edges or in electrical appliances that have a tendency to overheat.
- Failure to provide proper warnings — Sometimes, a product might be inherently dangerous to the consumer, but the company hasn’t offered the proper warning on its package to make people aware of any potential harm. These include electrical appliances that could become dangerously hot, products with small accessories that could cause a choking hazard or products that have unnoticed sharp edges.
Your case depends on the nature of your injury and what type of defective product caused it. Attorney Leto knowa what to look for in these cases to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
