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.
