Detroit Product Liability Lawyers

product liability

Product liability law deals with cases involving defective or unsafe products. Manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers of products can be held liable for damages arising from the use of defective products. Products covered by this area of law include food, drugs, and real estate, as well as virtually all consumer products. Manufacturers and sellers are expected to give adequate warnings about possible dangers, and to provide clear and adequate instructions of use. Failure to do so can cause a useful product to become deadly.

Product liability cases can include any multitude of products, however some of the most common examples include:

  • Auto defects
  • Vaginal slings
  • St. Jude heart valves
  • DePuy hip replacement recall
  • Sulzer hip implants
  • Zimmer knee replacements
  • Firestone tires

Who Can Take Legal Action?

The user who is injured and seeks damages does not need to be the original purchaser of the product nor does a person seeking damages have to prove negligence in many cases. Product liability frequently is a question of strict liability. The injured user may sue for damages as long as the product was used as it was meant to be used and not substantially changed from its original condition.

Claims for damages can also be filed for:

  • Negligence
  • Breach of warranty

In the case of negligence, if it can be shown that a company was negligent in testing its product adequately or in supplying directions for its use, the injured party may have grounds for filing a lawsuit. In all cases of product liability, it is essential to the success of the case that the product be preserved and that all paperwork showing the origin of the product be made available. Receipts showing purchase, any repair records, etc., can be vital to building a successful case.
