Understanding Products Liability
Products liability refers to the legal responsibility held by manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and retailers for injuries or damages caused by defective or dangerous products. In today's complex marketplace, where consumers rely on a wide range of products, understanding products liability becomes crucial.
Exploring Your Rights
As a consumer, you have the right to expect that the products you purchase are safe for their intended use. When a product fails to meet this expectation and leads to an injury or damages, you may be entitled to compensation. John Hugh Shannon specializes in helping individuals navigate the products liability landscape and fight for their rights.
Types of Product Defects
There are three main types of product defects:
1. Design Defects
A design defect occurs when a flaw or error in the product's design makes it unreasonably dangerous, even if it is manufactured and used as intended. When it comes to design defects, the responsibility lies with the designer.
2. Manufacturing Defects
Manufacturing defects are flaws that occur during the production process. These defects can make a product hazardous, deviating from the intended design. In such cases, the liability often lies with the manufacturer or the party responsible for the manufacturing process.
3. Marketing Defects
Marketing defects involve inadequate warnings or insufficient instructions about the proper use or potential risks of a product. This type of defect can occur when a manufacturer fails to provide proper labels, warnings, or instructions. Liability may extend to both the manufacturer and the distributor.
Proving Products Liability
Proving products liability requires establishing certain elements, including:
- The product was defective (design, manufacturing, or marketing defect).
- The defect caused your injury or damages.
- You were using the product as intended.
- You suffered significant harm as a result of the defect.
If you have been injured or suffered damages due to a defective product, you may be eligible for compensation for:
- Medical expenses, including future medical costs
- Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
- Emotional distress
