Product Liability

Corporations have a responsibility to consumers to ensure that the products they sell function properly. From household goods and car parts to machinery and medical devices, you should be able to trust that your safety won’t be compromised by a faulty product.

All products should be thoroughly evaluated in every phase of design, development, and production to ensure their safe use. When corporations fail to do so, they can be held accountable for the injuries they cause. If you’ve been harmed by a defective product, contact an Ohio product liability lawyer at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy. We stand up to large corporations when they mislead consumers, and if you’ve been injured by a faulty product, we’ll help you get the compensation you deserve.

What Should I Do if I’ve Been Injured?

Immediately following an injury caused by a defective product, you should:

  1. Seek medical treatment.
    When visiting the doctor, tell him or her what caused your injury and describe how the accident occurred.
  2. Gather information about the product.
    You should take photographs of your injuries immediately after the accident and throughout the recovery process. Take pictures of the product as well, and keep track of the instructions manual and the receipt of purchase.
  3. Obtain legal help.
    The company that manufactured the product that caused you harm will have a team of lawyers and the resources necessary to defend its actions—even when the company knows it’s wrong. That’s why you need an Ohio product liability lawyer on your side.

Manufacturers owe a duty of care to consumers, to ensure their products are safe. This responsibility encompasses designing products that are free from defects, adequately testing them for safety under intended and foreseeable use, and providing clear instructions and warnings about potential risks. Failure to meet these obligations can result in serious injury and even death.

Product liability cases play an important role in establishing accountability, not only for individuals but also for the safety of the public as a whole. By holding negligent manufacturers responsible, these cases contribute to enhancing overall product safety standards.

Types of Damages in Product Liability Claims

If you’ve suffered losses due to a defective product, you have the legal right to seek various types of damages, both economic and non-economic. In product liability claims, injured consumers often pursue the following:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for all medical costs associated with the injury, including hospital bills, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation costs, and ongoing care needs
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for the loss of income while the injured victim is unable to work, as well as potential compensation for future decreased earning capacity
  • Property Damage: Compensation to repair or replace personal property that has been damaged by the defective product
  • Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages to address the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the injury
  • Wrongful Death: Compensation to surviving family members in cases where a defective product leads to the tragic loss of a loved one

What Consumers Should Know About Product Liability

As a consumer, it’s essential to understand your legal rights when injured by a defective product. Product liability can arise from three major types of defects:

  • Design Defects: Inherent design flaws that render an entire product line hazardous, making them unreasonably dangerous for consumers
  • Manufacturing Defects: Flaws that occur during the manufacturing process, making the product dangerous and different from its intended design
  • Marketing Defects: Failures in providing proper warnings, instructions, or labels for safe product use

In the event of injury caused by a defective product, consumers have the legal right to seek compensation for damages and hold manufacturers accountable for their actions.
