Who is Liable for a Dangerous Product That Causes Injury?

When a product is put on the market it is expected to be safe for consumers to use. In cases where that product malfunctions, does not perform as advertised, or is otherwise defective and is the cause of injuries or death, it is the consumer who suffers. The question then becomes: what party can and should be held legally liable for the dangerous product?

These types of accident cases are referred to as product liability. Product liability refers to the liability the manufacturer, distributor or retailer has for producing or selling a defective or potentially dangerous product that results in injury or the wrongful death of another. In product liability cases there may be numerous parties who are legally liable for the injuries you sustained. The lawyers at Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law will be able to help you indentify the responsible parties in the chain of distribution and become an aggressive advocate for your rights.

You do not necessarily need to have even purchased the product yourself to be able to file a product liability claim or lawsuit. If you were injured by a product another person purchased or injured by a product another person was using, you could still pursue legal actions against those responsible for the product's distribution.
