In our modern era, our society has become more and more dependent upon various products that are designed for our enjoyment and to make our lives easier. However, each year thousands of people are seriously injured or killed as a result of a defective product. The Alabama Products Liability Attorneys at Martinson and Beason, P.C. have years of experience handling products liability claims against some of the world’s largest manufacturers. A products liability claim generally falls within one of three categories.
The first type of products liability claim is one in which someone is injured due to the defective design or unsafe condition of a product. In a design defect case, the claim is that the product has an inherent flaw in the design itself. The second type of products liability claim is one in which the product is defective due to a manufacturing defect. In a manufacturing defect case, the claim is that the defect has occurred in a small number of particular products due to some problem or mistake in the manufacturing or construction process. The third type of products liability claim is a failure to warn claim. In a failure to warn case, a product is defective because it fails to display or contain the appropriate warnings. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product it’s important that you consult with an experienced products liability attorney.
Product liability cases include:
- Automotive: Defective seat belts and air bags; defective roofs, gas tanks, car doors and seat backs that make a vehicle un-crash worthy; defective tires that can result in blowouts.
- Children’s products: car seats, strollers, cribs, toys, swings, and playpens.
