Products liability refers to the liability of manufacturers, processors, suppliers, distributors, or sellers of a defective or dangerous product that causes damage or injury to a buyer or third party. Products liability may also include the destruction of a product by its own defect. If you or a loved one have been injured or damaged by a defective product, contact Richard E. Genter to discuss the unique facts of your case and the potential for recovering monetary compensation.
Products liability law differs from state to state, and liability can occur in cases involving food and beverages; motor vehicles and accessories; aircraft and boats; industrial, business, or farm machinery, tools, and equipment; paint, cement, building supplies, small tools, and ladders; toys, games, and sports equipment; household and domestic machinery and appliances; clothing and shoes; animal medicines, fertilizers, pesticides; containers and packaging materials; and prescription or over-the-counter drugs. A successful products liability claim may be based upon a defective product design, a manufacturing defect, or an inadequate label or warning. Given the complexity of products liability law, it is recommended that you contact an experienced attorney to discuss your options.
