Examples of Product Liability Lawsuits

You may want to pursue a product liability case if:

  • A product you purchased had a design defect that caused injury
  • The product had a manufacturing defect that resulted in injury
  • The company failed to warn you of an obvious danger regarding the product on the packaging

If you were aware of a product defect but kept using the product anyway, your case may lose credibility. The company can argue that you were reckless in your use of the item. Your case may be baseless if you were not using the product correctly, or handled the product recklessly or carelessly. Our Minneapolis product liability attorney can listen to your side of the story and advocate for your rights.

Negligence in Motorcycle Accidents – Who Is at Fault?
A person can recover damages in a product liability case based on strict liability, negligence, or breach of warranty. Most often, these cases are argued on the basis of strict liability. Strict liability is a special protection for consumers. It keeps them from needing to pursue evidence for claims of negligence against manufacturers.

Instead, strict liability states that the manufacturer or the business that sold you a product is responsible for injuries caused by the item if:

  • The product had an unreasonable, dangerous defect which came into existence when the company was manufacturing, shipping, or designing it
  • No one tampered with the product significantly after it was originally sold
  • The defect caused an injury when the product was being used correctly
