Product Liability Attorneys

Product liability attorneys prosecute cases where defect products are involved. Typically, a product liability attorney will not charge a fee to take on a case and will work on a contingency basis.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) more than 22,000 deaths and 29.5 million injuries occur each year due to defective products.

The types of cases that product liability attorneys work on varies from asbestos cancer cases to pharmaceutical cases to cases of defective auto parts or toys. Not only the manufacturer can be held responsible by the product liability attorney and court of law but others in the chain such as the wholesaler, distributor and retail store can also be held accountable as well.

Tangible items are not the only items can be involved in product liability cases. Other items such as pets, real estate and writings (such as charts and directions) can be prosecuted by attorneys in products liability cases. Product liability attorneys can base their cases on negligence, strict liability, breach of contract or warranty of fitness depending upon the jurisdiction involved.

Product liability attorneys realize that the burden of proof is upon them to prove that the product in question is defective. Defects can be manufacturing defects, design defects or defects in marketing.

Design defects are those that are inherent to the product and present before the manufacturing stage and will affect all or most products. Manufacturing defects occur when the product was being manufactured and may only affect a small number of items manufactured. Defects in marketing predominately involve warning labels or warnings in instruction manuals where inadequate or absent warnings failed to inform the consumers of the particular dangers of a product.

While the burden of proof is upon the product liability attorney, most product liability cases are considered to be strict liability offenses. This is good news for the product liability attorney since with strict liability cases it does not matter how much care the manufacturer or supplier used. If a product is defective, they are liable.

In most jurisdictions a person has three years to bring about an action from the time they are aware of the loss, the defect and the identity of the manufacturer. In addition, any action against the defendants must take place within 10 years of the time the defective products were supplied by the manufacturer.

For those who have been injured or had a family member injured due to a defective product, time is of the essence to contact a product liability attorney, so that an action can be initiated as soon as possible. Many people tend to minimize the pain and suffering associated with being injured by a defective product and some let the statute of limitations slip on by them before contacting a product liability attorney.

If you or someone you know has been injured by a faulty product, the time to contact an attorney is now. Don't let time run away with your settlement.
