Elements of a Product Liability Case that an Experienced Long Island Product Liability Lawyers from the Harrison Law Group, P.C. Can Help You With
No two product liability claims are the same. An experienced New York product liability lawyer will guide you in the best approach to take for your case. Some of the elements of a product liability case include:
Demonstrating duty is important in filing any personal injury claim. In a product liability claim, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers all have a responsibility to provide consumers with products that are safe for their use. Manufacturers are required to provide consumers with information about any precautions they should take when using the product. They should also place warnings on side effects or dangers in relation to using the product. Failing to provide an adequate warning on the dangers of the product is considered negligence.
When manufacturers, distributors, or retailers fail to fulfill their duty to the consumer, they are considered negligent. A breach of duty may involve an error during manufacture, poor design, use of substandard parts, failure to provide an adequate warning on the dangers of the product, a malfunction of the product or even selling a damaged product to a consumer.
Breach of warranty
It is also possible for the victim to claim damages from the manufacturer or seller based on a breach of warranty. A warranty is an express or implied guarantee from the manufacturer or seller that the product will work in a certain way or will perform in accordance with a given standard. If the product fails and this results in an injury to the consumer, the manufacturer as well as the retailer can be held liable for the injuries suffered as a result of the use of the product. This is provided that the product was being used for its intended use.
It isn’t easy to prove that a manufacturer was negligent in designing or manufacturing a product. Strict liability does away with the need to prove that the manufacturer was at fault. This theory instead focuses on the product being dangerous in and of itself. In a strict liability claim, you will need to show that:
the manufacturer or seller was responsible for manufacturing, distributing, or selling the product
the product was defective and thus dangerous for use. You will also need to show that the defect caused the injury.
The manufacturer did not provide adequate warning about the dangers of the product
You did not alter the product in any way from how you purchased it when you used it.
It is important to discuss your case with an experienced attorney. They will guide you on the best way to approach your claim.
