We Are Local

Consumers rely on the products they purchase to function as advertised. Sadly, they cannot always count on this being the case. Many manufacturers knowingly sell defective, damaged, and downright dangerous products even though they are fully aware that the products are not fit for retail sale—all so they can capitalize on these products for as long as possible before being called out on it. Such negligent practices can result in major injuries as well as serious illnesses, such as when contaminated foods are made available to consumers to buy.

Duty of care in product liability cases

Manufacturers and retailers both owe a duty of care to consumers when they make products available for purchase. When they knowingly offer defective, potentially dangerous products for sale, they violate this duty of care and can then be held liable—or legally responsible—for any damages that result from the use of their product. Being liable means that they can be compelled to pay out damages in the form of financial compensation to the consumer who was negatively affected by their negligence.

Common product liability case types

Product liability cases come in a variety of forms, including:

  • Contaminated food
  • Over-the-counter medicine with improper dosage
  • Malfunctioning electronic devices
  • Defective appliances
  • Pre-assembled furniture missing crucial pieces
  • Defective automotive parts
  • Hazardous children’s toys
  • Toxic products labeled as non-toxic
  • Pet food containing harmful filler ingredients (plastic, etc.)
  • Products labeled as allergen-free containing allergens

If you or a family member have experienced one of these or any other product liability issues, reach out to a product liability lawyer at Russell & Hill, PLLC to discuss your legal options.

Defective products can damage persons and property

Some product liability cases can result in serious damage to people and to their property. For example, if a defective small appliance catches fire or explodes when operated according to manufacturer instructions, a house fire and burn injuries could result from this defect. A ladder that has rickety rungs near its apex could lead to a person falling from a great height, resulting in spinal cord injury and compound bone fractures. One “little” defect can lead to a lot of pain and suffering and could even result in becoming permanently disabled.
