You and your family likely use dozens of products over the course of each day. Each of those products has the potential to have a design flaw, manufacturing defect, or other issue that places your health or safety at risk.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Most product liability claims fall under one of three categories:

  • Breach of warranty: A breach of warranty claim asserts that the product caused an injury while being used as directed, therefore failing to meet the terms of its expressed or implied warranty.
  • Negligence: Companies have a duty of care to ensure their products are not hazardous to the public. A negligence claim can be brought against a company that knew –or should have known –their product represented a danger to consumers.
  • Strict liability: A strict liability claim does not require proof of negligence or breach of warranty; any party in the supply chain can be held accountable for the injuries and damages caused by a defective product that falls under strict liability statutes.

Don’t worry about determining what bucket your case falls into; that’s what we are here for
