Legal protections for victims of dangerous or defective products

Products liability protections help keep the public safe and hold all the parties in the chain of distribution liable for any harm caused by a dangerous or defective product. Liability can extend to a manufacturer, the wholesaler, the distributor, or the retail store involved in this chain. Products liability law is designed to ensure the public is kept safe from dangerous and defective products.

Users of everyday products have a reasonable expectation that they will be safe when using those products. When that expectation has been violated, and victims have suffered harm, victims may be able to bring a products liability claim for damages. There are different types of product liability claims, including strict liability claims, negligence, and breach of warranty of fitness for the use the product is intended for.

There are also different types of defects that create liability including design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. The bottom line, however, is that victims of dangerous or defective products are protected by products liability law when they have been harmed. If successful on one of these claims, they may recover compensation for their physical, financial, and emotional damages including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages.

Because there are a variety of complexities associated with pursuing a products liability claim for damages, it is helpful for victims and their families to know how to navigate the process. When victims are unexpectedly harmed by a defective product, there are legal resources and remedies available to help them. Victims and their families should know where to turn when they have been harmed by a product such as a household appliance or car, which is why qualified legal professionals stand ready to assist them in their fight for compensation
