PRODUCTS LIABILITY

If a person has been injured by an unsafe product, he or she may take action against the company who designed, manufactured, sold or furnished that product.? This type of lawsuit is known as a products liability lawsuit and can help eliminate dangerous products and future injuries.? In some cases manufacturers are held liable because they acted negligently when designing the product, or failed to act when they knew that the product was unsafe.? The infamous Firestone tire case is an example of willful product negligence.? Defective products cases also arise when a manufacturer fails to fulfill the terms of the product warranty, or misrepresents the product in advertisements that give consumers a false sense of security.
