When A Manufacturer Or Other Person Or Entity Is Liable For Injury

Manufacturing, advertising, selling and/or installing consumer goods represents a relationship of responsibility. When any of these actions are performed negligently or fraudulently and a consumer or user of a product is injured in the process, the negligent person or entity can be held responsible through a products liability claim. A settlement or verdict can bring relief to the injured person (or family members, when a product's usage had a fatal outcome).

Businesses that make and sell products owe a duty of care to the public. When they fail to adequately test products or alert consumers to hazards that showed up in safety testing results, they may be held liable. The liable party or parties may be compelled to pay damages to people injured by dangerous and defective products such as:

  • Toys
  • Power tools
  • Medical devices
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Home appliances
  • Equipment used in workplaces
  • Automotive products

If a manufacturer did not properly represent a product or did not warn of known dangers, and you or your family member was injured as a result, talk to a products liability attorney. Learn about your rights and how to prepare to file a claim for compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
