Essential Information About Product Liability Claims
To succeed with any product liability claim, it is vital for the plaintiff to prove that the product in question is defective or unreasonably dangerous through normal use and that the product in question caused measurable harm to the plaintiff. Defective consumer products can cause severe physical injuries, expose consumers to toxic substances, and even result in catastrophic injuries with life-changing repercussions for the victim.
Most product liability claims revolve around products that are defective in one of three possible ways:
- Defective by design. This pertains to products that have inherent flaws in their design blueprints. Every product produced with the flawed design will carry the same defect.
- Defective by production. This applies to products with defects due to compromised raw materials, defective components, or problems with product assembly. This type of defect may only affect certain units or production lots.
- Defective marketing or failure to provide adequate instructions and/or safety warnings. Product manufacturers must represent their products’ intended uses and capabilities faithfully in marketing materials. Additionally, manufacturers must include clear instructions for use of their products and any safety warnings required by law.
Product manufacturers across various industries must ensure the quality of the products they produce with a rigorous quality control process. Unfortunately, some companies do not practice adequate quality control standards and release products to the market that pose serious risks to consumers. If you believe your recent injury occurred because a defective design, a production defect, or the failure of the manufacturer to include complete and accurate safety warnings or instructions for use, you likely have grounds for a product liability claim against the manufacturer.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you have suffered injuries from a defective consumer product, you may initially assume that your case is clear, and the manufacturer is undeniably liable for your losses. While this may be true, the actual process of securing compensation for your losses is likely to be much more challenging than you expect. Most consumer product manufacturing companies have large in-house legal teams or retain powerful big-city firms. If you intend to take legal action against any company for a defective product, you must hire a reputable attorney with solid experience handling product liability claims.
Having legal counsel on your side as you pursue a product liability claim will inherently increase your chances of holding the negligent manufacturer responsible for your damages and securing maximum compensation allowable under applicable laws. Shlesinger & deVilleneuve Attorneys, P.C. have the skills and experience to guide you through the most challenging product liability claims that can arise in Gold Beach and Brookings.

When you have suffered an injury from a defective consumer product, it’s possible that other consumers have sustained similar injuries from using the same product. These situations often escalate into class-action lawsuits against the manufacturer, in which multiple plaintiffs with similar damages band together against a common defendant. While this can offer a streamlined path to compensation for your losses, the amount you receive from a class-action lawsuit will likely be minimal at best and much less than you could potentially secure with an individual suit represented by an experienced product liability lawyer.
