Products Liability

Products Liability

Defective or Dangerous Product & Product Injury

As a consumer, you have the right to expect that the products you purchase are safe for use or consumption, and the manufacturer or seller are expected to supply products that are not defective or harmful to you.

When a product has a defect or poses an unexpected risk of harm, the product cannot be said to meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer. Product liability claims are typically cases against the designer, manufacturer or seller of an unsafe or dangerous vehicle, tire, machine, tool, equipment, toy, firearm, appliance or other product which causes its user or a bystander to be injured or killed because of defects in its design, manufacture, labeling or inadequate warning.

They may fall within three categories: manufacturing defects when products differ from the intended design, design defects when products present a safety hazard as designed, and failures to warn the consumer of a known danger. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a defective or dangerous product, we may be able to recover compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other related costs.  Call the law office of David Schmidt for more information and to speak with Mr. Schmidt about your case.
