Companies are liable when they sell dangerous products

Manufacturers have a responsibility to make reasonably safe products for consumers, but that’s not always the case. The following are the most common reasons for defective products:

  • Poor manufacturing process. Defects in the manufacturing process are unfortunately a common occurrence. A poorly made component — such as nails, screws or clamps — can cause a product to completely fall apart, while a tainted batch of a food or beverage item due to unclean facilities can make many people sick.
  • Dangerous designs. Companies are sometimes too quick in introducing products to the marketplace, overlooking major design flaws that put consumers at risk. When these items do not function as they should, serious injury may result.
  • Lack of proper warnings. If a product has the potential to cause harm, manufacturers have a responsibility to provide adequate warnings to consumers, such as when companies sell items containing dangerous chemicals without notifying users about the potential hazards.
  • Failure to recall. Sometimes companies know that their products are unsafe, but the cost of conducting a full recall would be higher than any potential lawsuits. In these cases, it’s important to hold manufacturers accountable for their negligence — for both you and others who could also be injured.

What is strict products liability?

In most cases, your attorney needs to examine the reason why a product was defective in order to secure a verdict for a client. However, in strict products liability cases, you and your attorney simply have to prove that a defective product injured you, and reason behind the defect is irrelevant. The goal of strict liability claims is to recover compensation for injuries and not to pursue punitive damages of any kind. Be sure to ask your Boston lawyers about strict products liability and if it applies to your case.
