Product Liability

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Law offices of Gary Green staffs legal personnel to review most cases of product liability law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause.

In the United States, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are:

  • Negligence
  • Strict liability
  • Breach of warranty
  • Various consumer protection claims.

The majority of product liability law is determined at the state level and varies widely from state to state. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements be proven to present a successful claim.

Liability claims come into play when manufacturers fail to provide a safe and secure product for consumers. So, it is important to prove that a manufacturer was negligent by failing to keep their products free of hazards.
