Products liability is an area of law intended to protect consumers from unreasonably dangerous products that have been placed into the stream of commerce. A products liability claim may be raised by an individual, who is injured by a manufactured-commercial product, placed into the stream of commerce, and with dangerous propensities. An individual who is injured due to inadequate warnings, design defects, and/or production blunders may bring a products liability claim. Products liability is not a cause of action, but the type matter. A lawsuit styled under products liability generally contains several causes of action, such as, strict liability, negligence and breach of warranties.
Manufacturing and retail businesses are exposed to unique issues, such as products liability matters, that are non-existent in pure service industries. In addition to supporting manufacturing businesses with contract formations, common business litigation, and corporate governance, we can defend against claims related to products liability.
