Baldwin County Product Liability Lawyer
Defective and dangerous products injure thousands of American consumers each year. Some people even suffer permanent disabilities that cause them many lifelong financial and emotional losses. The law allows injured consumers to hold manufacturers liable for their losses in certain situations, though these cases are far from simple. You want an experienced Baldwin County product liability attorney on your side as soon as possible.
What is Product Liability?
Manufacturers have a legal duty to produce and sell products that are safe for consumers. If a product has inherent risks, companies must properly warn consumers of the potentially dangerous nature of the product. When a corporation fails to meet its duties, people can get hurt, and the manufacturer should be responsible.
Injury victims might hold a company liable for their losses if any of the following occurred:
- Design Flaws – These defects are inherent and preexist a product’s manufacturing. Design defects will affect all the products that stem from the faulty design.
- Manufacturing Flaws – Manufacturing defects happen during production, possibly due to machinery malfunctions, worker errors, or inadequate materials used for the product.
- Marketing Flaws – These flaws occur when a manufacturer gives incorrect or misleading instructions or fails to warn the consumer of their products’ potential dangers.
Proving any of the above can be highly technical and complex, so you want to have a lawyer on your side who knows how to handle this type of case. Often, product liability claims require expert analysis to prove that the product was defective and not simply misused by the injured consumer. If more than one consumer suffered the same injuries from the same product, they might choose to file a class action claim.
