What is product liability?

By law, companies that create products must ensure that they are safe for use by consumers. When those making a product do not properly design, manufacture or provide instructions or warnings for its consumers, you can hold this maker liable for any damages that occur. If you or a loved one suffered an injury from a defective product, you may be entitled to file a product liability claim to obtain compensation.

What is the difference between a design defect and manufacturing defect?

Defective design means the designers conceptualized a product that was inherently faulty. This means that even if all the manufacturing materials and process are sound, the product can still potentially be defective and harm consumers.

On the other hand, a manufacturing defect means that designers created a safe and effective product, but the manufacturers may have used inferior materials or a production method that created a defect in the product.

How can I prove a marketing defect caused my injury?

To prove a marketing defect was responsible for a product liability injury, you must be able to prove that the maker knew or should have known about the risk of injury associated with its product and failed to warn consumers. Victims must also prove that this defect directly caused their injuries.

If a defective vehicle part causes a car accident, can I sue the car manufacturer?

Depending on the circumstances, someone injured in a car accident caused by defective brakes, seat belts or another faulty automotive component may file a product liability claim against the car or car part company. However, individuals considering this option should consult with a product liability attorney who is knowledgeable about thoroughly investigating auto accidents. Our Nashville product liability attorney can uncover whether defective auto parts may be the fault, or if another party made mistakes while performing car repairs or maintenance.

What do I do if I get hurt by a defective product at work?

In most cases, employees hurt on the job can receive workers compensation. If a defective product injures a worker, such as faulty work equipment or machinery, he or she may be entitled to gain more than just workers comp. Third party claims may allow employees to pursue legal action against the maker of a defective product. This can provide more benefits than workers compensation alone.
