Product Liability

The law of product liability involves placing a dangerously defective product into the stream of commerce and ultimately into the hands of a consumer. If a consumer is injured when using a dangerously defective product, any person or entity in the chain of distribution of the product might be held liable. Those might range from the manufacturer, a manufacturer of a component part, an assembly business, a wholesaler or even the retailer who sells the product to the consumer.

The Atlanta GA injury attorney at the Dennis Law Firm advises that there are three types of defects that might make a product dangerously defective. Those follow:

  • Design Defects: These come from the drawing board or blueprints before the product is even manufactured. A design defect is found in every product in the line.
  • Manufacturing Defects: These occur during the manufacturing or assembly processes. Only a few products in the entire line would be dangerously defective.
  • Failure to Warn: This might consist of improper labeling, inadequate instructions, or insufficient safety warnings.

If an injury victim can prove any one of the above product defects, that person does not need to prove negligence. He or she need only prove that the product was defective. However, product liability law is not all that simple. Many defenses like alleged misuse or alteration of the product are in existence.
