Consumers who purchase products and goods are entitled to have the reasonable expectation that such products and goods will function safely and as advertised. Even those goods which do not carry express or written warranties often hold implied warranties where the manufacturer and seller may be held liable for products that simply do not work, are unsafe, or were falsely advertised to consumers.
Certain products can be extremely dangerous and even fatal when either the product fails or the consumer is not properly warned of its dangers. This can occur with personal products, medical devices, furniture, appliances, or even automobiles. Depending on the scale of the product design or manufacturing defect, individual or class actions may be appropriate. Liability arises from both manufacturing defects of a single or small batch of product, as well as design defects of a product in general. Failing to implement proper warning labels or instruction can also lead to a manufacturers liability.
Product liability is generally subject to strict liability; however, significant investigation is required for every product liability case to determine where in the creation of the product the negligence took place and who is ultimately responsible for the consumer's injury. Preservation of the product and intense scientific testing are important things for your lawyer to do right away to make sure that your product's failure is properly documented.
