People across the world use different types of products on a daily basis. When you use or purchase a product, you are essentially placing your trust in the product’s designer, manufacturer, and seller. Unfortunately, thousands of people sustain serious injuries or illness each year as a result of products that are defective or dangerous.
We at The Fitch Law Firm fight aggressively for the rights of victims of bad or defective products, and help them to obtain the compensation that they need and deserve. Call us at 855-LAW-OHIO today to schedule a free consultation.
What is Product Liability?
Product liability is an area of the law that protects the rights of a consumer by holding individuals and companies potentially accountable for any injuries caused by their products when they are used as intended. Manufacturers and vendors, after all, owe consumers a duty of care to protect them from any preventable harm.
A product does not necessarily have to be broken in order to be considered bad or defective. Product liability may involve defects or flaws in the design or manufacture of a particular product. This may also include marketing or warning defects, such as products with improper warnings and labels or products containing harmful ingredients.
Depending on the type of product used, a claim may be brought against anyone involved in the creation or sale of the product—such as the designer, manufacturer, distributor or retailer.
