After spending your hard earned money on a new product or device it’s
important that it works for its intended use. Not only should the product
work correctly, it should be safe to use and labeled properly to warn
consumer of any hazards that it may cause. These are just some of the
guidelines that manufacturers and companies have to follow.
Having a defective product that is falsely labeled or created with hazardous
materials can cause serious harm and injury to consumers especially if
a young child gets ahold of it. If you have a product that:
- Causes unintended injury
- Doesn’t work/malfunctions
- Injures you while performing the intended use
Then you have a
product liability case on your hands. Although there are products that are cheaply made
or break after a length of time, proving you have a product liability
case may be difficult. To find out if you have aproduct liability case on your hands, one of these four liabilities must be present:
- Negligence – Failure on the part of the manufacturer in regards to
safety precautions in the design or production.
- Breach of Warranty – The terms of the offered warranty were not met
by the seller.
- Misrepresentation – False advertising was used to sell the product
and safety hazards were not revealed.
- Strict Tort Liability – Anybody who suffered injury by the product
or when the product malfunctioned has the right to sue.
