Product Liability Lawyer in Las Vegas

When you use a product you purchased from the store, you are responsible for using the product according to its intended design. Read the instructions and warning labels carefully to learn how to execute its purpose.

However, responsibility also lies with the manufacturer. Warning labels are used to highlight any potential danger and avoid injuries.

However, there are cases where a consumer uses the product responsibly, but an injury occurs. This is where product liability comes into play.

Types of Product Liability

There are several types of product liability.

  1. Negligence is when the manufacturer was careless in designing the product, manufacturing it, or both. In this case, you show proof that they breached their duty of care to you within the distribution chain.
  2. Strict liability means the plaintiff has to show that the product was used as intended, but a flaw in the design, manufacturing process or warning labels led to injuries.
  3. Breach of warranty is when the manufacturer or retailer represented the product as safe when it was not.

If you are seeking legal assistance for any of these reasons, contact our Las Vegas products liability lawyer for help.

Manufacturing and Design Defects

According to the law, two primary types of defects can cause product liability. The first is manufacturing. That occurs when there is an error during the assembly of the product. Including a part in the final product that should not be there is also considered a manufacturing defect.

Companies have safeguards against these errors. Stringent quality control processes are in place to ensure only the correct products reach the consumer. However, that is not always the case. From time to time, a defective product goes through.

A product containing an error is not enough to prove product liability. Plaintiffs must prove that the final product had the error when it left the factory.

The other type of defect is design. A product can have an error because the original blueprint followed by the manufacturing process contains a flaw. A design defect means the problem was meant to be there, while a manufacturing defect does not.

Failing to Warn the Public

Companies can be held liable for manufacturing and design defects, but that is not their only responsibility. They are also accountable for injuries their product causes due to a lack of proper warning labels. According to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), warning labels should be placed in visible locations and be readable by everyone.

Warning labels should also contain the following:

  • A warning to the customer about existing hazards already known about the product.
  • Informing about any potential risk when using the product and how severe the risk is.
  • Educate the consumers on how to use the item properly and avoid potential hazards.

Examples of Product Liability Cases

Examples of product liability cases include:

  • The vehicle design was faulty, which led to an accident
  • A defective baby product caused an injury
  • Drugs with undisclosed side effects
  • Household appliances that do not have proper warning labels
  • Missing safeguards for an automobile part

How to Prove a Product Liability Claim

Proving product liability is different compared to other personal injury cases. The crucial part is showing that the product was used as intended and according to the instructions.

The evidence involved in product liability is technical, which requires the input of an expert. A lawyer will present their findings persuasively on your behalf.
