Virtually any product can cause harm when it is defective. A defective product could include anything from a part on your car, such as an air bag or a seat belt, to a child’s toy or a prescription drug. If a product’s defect caused an injury to you or a family member, we encourage you to call our Jackson personal injury lawyers.
Can I File a Claim?
Product liability claims can require thorough investigation of the product, manufacturers, and any other parties involved in the process. You will need to determine the liable party, as well as gather sufficient evidence to prove the defect was connected to your injury. Depending on the nature of the defect, various parties could be held responsible under product liability law including the manufacturer, the parts manufacturers, the packaging company, or a wholesaler or retailer.
There are three strategies you can pursue when filing a claim:
- Negligence: This is a claim that rests on the fact that the product was made defective as a result of negligence on the part of one of the parties involved.
- Strict liability: This claim shows that your injury was the result of a defective product. You do not have to establish negligence; a strict liability claim merely establishes that the product was defective and caused an injury when used as intended.
- Breach of warranty: While many breach of warranty suits are filed under a written or expressed warranty, the law also recognizes certain implied warranties.
