Product Liability Law Basics
Product liability laws protect consumers from goods that cause them harm. The ways this can happen include:
A product liability claim usually falls into one of three categories:
Many responsible companies will recall their own products on a voluntary basis if they learn of a safety issue. And a "recall" doesn't always mean you have to return the product. For example, an auto manufacturer will make arrangements for repairs to be made at no charge to their customers.
Agencies such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission (http://www.cpsc.gov/) or the Food and Drug Administration (http://www.fda.gov/) can alert the public about safety concerns and recalls. If you are considering buying something (especially if it is used) it is a good idea to check into whether the product has been subjected to any recalls.
Product liability law is one of the areas where a person should really not try to handle the case themselves. An experienced attorney can help you determine which sort of liability case you have and what type of liability applies.
