Consumers expect that the products made available to them for purchase are reasonably free of harmful defects or dangerous malfunctions. However, looking at the number of products recalled for safety reasons each year gives an idea of just how often consumers are harmed by products they have purchased. Manufacturers and retailers both have a duty to provide products that are safe to use—or if not inherently safe, then to warn consumers of any hazards to their health that use of these products may cause. When manufacturers fail to hold up their end of the bargain, the results can be devastating, causing injury or even resulting in death. If you or someone you love has been hurt because of a defective or malfunctioning consumer product, contact a product liability lawyer in Olathe at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. to learn more about your legal rights and options.
Product liability law spans a variety of situations wherein a product is faulty, defective, or otherwise dangerous to consumers but is sold to them anyway. These products, when used, can lead to illness, injury or even a tragically preventable death. Some examples include:
If a manufacturer knowingly and willingly produces a product that is faulty—potentially in a dangerous way—but continues to sell that product to retailers and wholesalers to make available to the general public, they can be held liable in court for any damages to persons or property resulting from their willful negligence. Negligence is an action (or failure to act) that results in preventable injury or property damage. For example, a manufacturer who knows that harmful chemicals are in markers marketed for use by children (because it was cheaper to make them with these chemicals than to make them actually non-toxic) and labels the markers as “non-toxic” anyway, that manufacturer can be held liable in court for their negligence.
