What Is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to ensure that the products they make and sell are safe for public use. This area of law is crucial for protecting consumers from harm caused by defective and unsafe products. Types of product defects that result in injuries and lawsuits include:

  • Design defects: Inherent flaws in the product design that make it unsafe
  • Manufacturing defects: Errors that occur during the production or assembly of the product
  • Marketing defects: Failures in how the product is marketed, including inadequate safety warnings or improper instructions

Product liability laws enable consumers to seek compensation if a defective product harms them. These laws vary by state but generally require that the product must have been sold in the marketplace and that the defect directly caused the injury. 

Establishing liability can involve demonstrating that the product was defective and that no substantial alterations were made to the product after it left the manufacturer or seller. Our Macon product liability lawyer has the skills to prove negligence in these challenging claims and will work strategically to protect your rights.

Common Defective Products

Defective products that lead to injuries span a wide range of categories, each associated with unique risks. Common products often involved in liability cases include:

  • Automotive parts: Faulty brakes, airbags, or ignition switches that can lead to accidents or fail to protect occupants as intended.
  • Children’s toys and equipment: Products with choking hazards, lead paint, or unsafe designs that put children at risk.
  • Electronics: Devices that overheat, catch fire, or malfunction due to poor design or defective batteries (e.g., e-scooters, e-bikes, smartphones).
  • Pharmaceuticals: Medications with harmful side effects that were not disclosed or due to contamination during manufacturing.
  • Household appliances: Items like stoves, heaters, or washers that malfunction and lead to fires or other hazards.

At the Joshua E. Palmer Law Firm, we are dedicated to holding manufacturers accountable and ensuring that those harmed by defective products receive the justice and compensation they deserve.

Defective Products and Their Lasting Repercussions

Defective products can have severe physical, emotional, and financial repercussions. Injuries from such products vary widely depending on the item’s intended use and the nature of the defect:

  • Physical injuries: Including fractures or lacerations from tools or machinery that malfunction.
  • Burns and electrocution: From defective electronics or appliances that overheat or have faulty wiring.
  • Chemical exposure: Due to leaking containers or improper packaging of hazardous substances.
  • Poisoning: From consumables or medicines that are contaminated or improperly labeled.

These injuries can lead to substantial financial losses due to mounting medical bills, loss of income, and long-term care costs. The complexity and scope of product liability cases require the seasoned legal representation the Joshua E. Palmer Law Firm provides.
