Products Liability

Case law requires manufacturers to design and produce their products so they are reasonably safe for their intended use. This law applies to all products individuals come in contact with including machines, consumer goods, and pharmaceutical drugs. If a person is injured by a product that could have been designed so it was safer to use, was defectively produced, or contained inadequate safety warnings, that person may sue the manufacturer or seller of that defective product.

To successfully litigate product liability cases, an attorney who understands engineering and can discuss the technical aspects of machinery with engineering experts is required.
