Product Liability Lawyers in Washington, DC
Protecting the Rights of Victims Injured by Defective Products
Product liability law establishes the duties of companies that make products available to the public and the rights of consumers injured by unsafe products. When consumers suffer from the use of a product – whether the damage is physical, emotional, or financial – they have the right to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer, distributor, and / or retailer responsible for the defective product. Your eligibility to pursue compensation for your damages will depend on the circumstances of your case.
Claims for defective products can be filed for the following reasons:
- Defective design – an inherent flaw in a product’s design may render it defective, and therefore dangerous to consumers, no matter how it is constructed.
- Defect during manufacturing – Manufacturing defects refer to mistakes made during the manufacturing process that make an otherwise safe product dangerous. Examples of manufacturing defects include poor workmanship and sub-standard materials.
- Defects with marketing – Products marketed in inappropriate ways can lead to improper use and injuries. Failures to warn users about potential dangers are also considered marketing defects.
