Shreveport Product Liability Lawyer

In what cases can I file a product liability claim?

Product liability is that area of law which holds the following parties responsible for any injuries their products cause:

  • Manufacturers
  • Sellers
  • Suppliers
  • Retailers
  • Distributors

In the United States, product liability claims generally have to do with negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty and other consumer protection claims.

Which Type of of Product Liability Claim Fits My Case?

The three main types of product liability claims include:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Defective design
  • Failure to warn

To further explain, a manufacturing defect would be one that occurred during the manufacturing process, and this often involves poor quality materials or poor workmanship. With a design defect, the design itself was inherently defective and useless, regardless of how well it was manufactured. A defective design can be established when the product fails to satisfy its ordinary expectations or when the risks of using the product far outweigh the benefits.

With a failure to warn defect, the product can carry inherent, yet not obvious, dangers which could have been minimized had there been appropriate warnings to the user. In such cases, these dangers exist no matter how well the product was manufactured or how well it was designed for its intended purpose.
