Types of Product Liability Lawsuits

Product liability lawsuits are filed when manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. Hundreds of people are injured every year by defective products, and many win settlements to compensate them for their suffering. If you or a loved one has suffered because of a defective product, you deserve compensation too.

What to Know Before You File a Lawsuit

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a defective product, you should be thinking about filing a lawsuit. But you shouldn’t be thinking about doing it on your own. Remember, you may need to acquire medical records, accident reports, death records, plus fill out other legal paperwork such as subpoenas and court petitions. You’ll need to find expert witnesses to testify about the product in question. You’ll be signing up to argue against experienced lawyers and experts from insurance companies or big corporations, and you’ll need an experienced lawyer to get the compensation you may be entitled to.

McIntyre Law levels the playing field, putting our experienced, strategic attorneys on your side.

What is a contingency fee?

When a lawyer works on a “contingency fee” basis, they’re agreeing to accept a fixed percentage of any monetary rewards from your lawsuit to cover their legal fees. If there are no rewards from your product liability case, you don’t pay the lawyer. We get paid if, and only if, you do.

What is the statute of limitations for a product liability lawsuit?

The statute of limitations for filing a product liability lawsuit varies from state to state. We can help you find out whether you have the sound legal standing to file a product liability lawsuit.

What compensation can I get from a product liability lawsuit?

Compensation for a successful product liability lawsuit can include cash awards, as well as payments for:

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery
  • Other medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income
  • Future expenses
  • Travel costs for medical visits
  • Funeral and burial expenses

What is a product liability claim?

Product liability is a situation when a defective product goes through market channels and lands in the hands of a consumer (that’s you).

There are several big classes of product liability lawsuits… vehicle defects, defective medical devices, drug liability, and hip replacement lawsuits… just to name a few. But sometimes, it’s the everyday items in your home or office that can cause harm. For example, if you’re sitting in a chair and it breaks (by no fault of your own), causing you to have a spinal or back injury, who is responsible for your medical bills? Lost wages? Costs associated with physical and other therapies? It could be the manufacturer, if we can show that the chair was manufactured in a defective way.

There are several parties who could be responsible in defective product cases, and product liability attorneys can help determine who they are. They can include:

  • Product manufacturer
  • Manufacturer of certain parts
  • Assembler or installer
  • Wholesaler
  • Retailer (store)

Common Product Defects

A few specific types of problems are responsible for many product liability cases. These include:

  • Inadequate warning labels
  • Failure to warn
  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
