PRODUCT LIABILITY ACCIDENTS OVERVIEW

Product liability is an area of law that holds product manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers accountable for injuries suffered from an unsafe product.  Virtually all products are subject to product liability law, including food, drugs, appliances, cars, toys, medical devices, medical implants and blood, tobacco, gases, written documents (instructions), real estate, maps, commercial jets and more.

Manufacturers have an obligation to design and make safe products for their consumers to use.  They also have a duty to alert consumers of any potential problems related to their product such as product defects and product recalls.

Examples of product liability claims are:

  • SUV rollover or other car accident
  • Tire blow-out
  • Car seat malfunction
  • Defective medical device
  • Faulty medical equipment
  • Drug recall
  • Mislabeled food supplement
  • Toxic substance
  • Unsafe construction equipment or faulty part

Defective or dangerous products are the cause of wrongful deaths and thousands of serious injuries every year including catastrophic burns, broken bones, amputation, traumatic brain injury, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries.

DO NOT RELY ON INSURANCE COMPANIES

Do not accept any claim before you speak with an attorney.  Many large insurance companies have adopted settlement policies that encourage their adjusters to offer quick payments to persons involved in an accident.  Insurance adjusters will contact you or your family shortly after an accident to try to gain your confidence.  In doing so, insurance adjusters often try to present themselves as the friend of the injured person or the family of the person who was killed in an accident.  The goal of such contact is to settle the case on terms as favorable as possible for the insurance company.
