A large corner of personal injury law is made up of something called product liability. This is the type of law that deals with dangerous or defective products that injure us. Manufacturers either design or make a product that ends up hurting consumers. This is almost always caused by negligence. There are, however, cases where a company is aware of the issue, but chose not to do anything about it. A lawyer will file claims against companies producing defective medical products on behalf of their clients.
There are several types of product liability. The most common types include:
- Defective design cases
- Manufacturing defects
- Failure to warn
With all three of these types of cases, your personal injury attorney will have to prove fault on behalf of the defendant. Since the defendant is in control of the design and manufacture of the product, it’s not as difficult to prove negligence.
A large number of product liability cases fall into what is known as defective medical products cases. As patients, we rely on our medical providers to keep us healthy. They may prescribe or recommend products to us that will aid in our physical recovery. We trust their judgment and either buy or rent the medical products they suggest. When these products hurt us, we need to contact the experienced personal injury lawyers at McDonald Worley.
