Product liability cases arise when defective products cause injuries and damages to consumers. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers may all be liable in these cases. Manufacturers, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the FDA regularly issue recall information related to defective products in an attempt to warn consumers of defective products. Recalls are intended to protect consumers from dangerous products, but they are not intended to prove that a defendant manufacturer is liable for a defective product and they are also not intended to remove the manufacturer’s liability. Recalls will most often not affect a product liability claim.
In order to prove product liability cases, plaintiffs generally try to prove that a product was defective and/or that warranties were breached.
Defects – Types of defects include design, manufacture, and failure to warn of potential dangers associated with the product.
Warranties – Types of warranties include express warranties and implied warranties that a product is free from defects, it is safe for its intended purposes, and that it is fit for a particular purpose.
Defenses to product liability cases often include the following:

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
