Elgin Product Liability Lawyers
What Is Product Liability Law?
Product liability defects are flaws or malfunctions of products which put consumers in harm’s way. Defective or unsafe products can come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and categories. Anything from your car to your toaster could malfunction and cause you physical harm. Unsafe products are the liability of the manufacturer, the wholesaler, and the retailer from whom you purchased them. Product liability law refers to consumers’ rights to purchase safe products that do what they are designed to do. If a product endangers a consumer in some way, there may be grounds for a case.
Types of Product Liability
There is a wide range of products that may have defects which warrant a legal case. Defective drugs, for example, are those pharmaceutical drugs that either damage a patient’s health in some way or have adverse side effects that have not been disclosed in marketing materials or packaging. Medical devices and products may also be defective including surgical devices like implants, prosthetics, and pacemakers. Automobiles also have a high rate of defect. Any part of a car or truck that does not function properly is often the responsibility of the manufacturer. Unsafe tools, machines, toys, or any products without proper safety labeling may all also qualify as defect products.
