Product Liability Law Firm That Protects Your Interests
Damaged by a Product? Virginia Attorney Who Advocates for You
Product liability is the responsibility that any or all parties involved in the production of a product may have for damage caused by that product. Those who may liable for a defective product include:
- The parts manufacturer
- The assembling manufacturer
- The wholesales
- The store who sold the product
Product liability claims can be brought based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. The subject of product liability suits is a product that caused harm to a consumer of the product, or to someone who the product was loaned or given to. Besides tangible property, product liability lawsuits can also be brought regarding things such gas and oil, pets, and real estate. What must be proven is that the product is defective. There are generally three types of defects that manufacturers and suppliers are liable for:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Marketing defects
Products liability is usually considered a strict liability offense, meaning that the defendant is liable when it is shown that the product is defective, no matter what the degree of carelessness shown regarding the plaintiff. If there is shown to be a defect in the product that is responsible for the harm suffered by the plaintiff, the defendant will usually be found liable, depending upon the facts of the case.
