Around 7% of all personal injury cases involve defective products. Under product liability laws, a company’s first priority is to protect its customers from dangerous and harmful products. In defective product law, the courts assume that companies have the most knowledge of their products. Therefore, it’s justifiable for them to be held liable if a product is defective and injures a customer.

Why are product liability cases complex?
You would think that only the manufacturer of a defective product can be held liable for a consumer’s injury. But that’s not always true. Sometimes, other companies or individuals involved in the manufacturing and distribution of a product are responsible for part of the damages in these complicated cases. The manufacturer, the retailer, and other entities within the supply chain of a product’s distribution can be liable in a defective product case.
When you contact us for a free injury consultation, we will look at all parties involved in the product’s supply chain. The manufacturer or company who owns the product is the first entity we will assess for liability. Since they are responsible for creating the product, they will be held liable for at least some of the damages involved in the case.
A manufacturer could be a large corporation or a small or mid-sized business. The size of the manufacturer does not matter, as any negligent company is responsible for defective products. Sometimes, there is a serious design flaw that we will uncover in the product. Bringing forth a suit will protect other innocent consumers from injury.
How are retailers responsible? It’s true that a retailer may have been unaware of defects in a product they stock and sell. However, the court views retailers as having a legal responsibility for the products they market. A retailer may say they are ignorant as a defense against a lawsuit, but the court may still hold them accountable.
Sometimes, a wholesaler or distributor may be liable for damages, too. As a victim of a defective product, you have the legal right to bring forth a lawsuit against more than one party in the distribution chain. Many clients come to us reeling from the fallout of a defective product injury. They may face expensive medical bills, lost wages, and decreased earning potential.
