Product Liability Defined

Many products are safely designed and pose no special risk to the person using them. However, a significant number of products which are improperly designed, constructed or which fail to warn about hidden dangers cause severe injuries or death. Problems with dangerous products is so prevalent that the Federal Government created the Consumer Product Safety Commission to reduce the risk of injuries and death caused by consumer products.

Persons who are injured by improperly designed or manufactured products have a cause of action against the manufacturer and/or retailer responsible for placing the product in the marketplace. Such products very often result in permanent and disabling injuries. These injuries invariably cause immense pain and suffering as well as mounting medical expenses and lost wages. They necessarily have a significant impact on spouses, children and other loved ones. The emotional toll they take on a family is immeasurable. Although no amount of money can repair the damage such injuries cause to the person or his or her family, the economic pressures created by the injuries can be relieved through the assertion of a proper claim against the responsible party.
