We place a great deal of trust in manufacturers and retailers when we purchase products from them for personal or business use, and manufacturers owe it to us to provide us with reasonably safe products—or at least to warn us if the products may be unsafe in some way, as with warnings on cigarette and liquor labels or hazardous materials warnings. However, some manufacturers would rather protect their bottom line than ensure public safety, and this can yield tragic results including severe injury, illness or even death. If you were injured by a defective product and want to talk to a product liability lawyer, the skilled attorneys at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. can help you get informed about your legal rights and options.
Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. handles a lot of product liability cases, and in our 40 years of experience in product liability litigation, we have seen a lot of different case types. Here are some of the most common scenarios we come across:
Even something like a “dud,” that is advertised to function in some way but fails to do so (faulty video game console) could fall under product liability law.
There are other scenarios in which product liability may come into play, as well. If you purchase a “floor model” of a piece of furniture and the model is not correctly assembled (i.e., it is missing a few crucial parts) but it is sold to you anyway, and the furniture then falls apart and leads to injuries, it is possible that you could sue the retailer for selling you a faulty product. In another example, if you purchase a toaster that does not have a critical heat-regulating part installed in it (even though it should) and the toaster catches fire when used according to package instructions and causes a kitchen fire that not only injures people but damages your property, you could sue the manufacturer for damages done to both person (burn injuries) and property (counters, walls, ceilings burned by the fire).
