Who Can Sue for Defective Products

Share This Post

You expect your products to be fully operational and free of risk. Unfortunately, some manufacturers neglect to follow their precautions, which causes everyday customers to sustain injuries. Millions of people experience an injury or illness due to a defective product, but you have the legal right to sue.

Anyone Can Sue

Whether you’re the parent of a child injured or injured yourself, you have the legal right to hold the manufacturer accountable for their actions. Also, you don’t have to buy the product to have a case.

You or Your Child Must Have Been Injured

You or your child must have been injured to have a defective product case. Even if you weren’t using the product in question, you still have grounds for a case if you are injured. For example, if your spouse is washing dishes with a new chemical that you’re unknowingly allergic to, you may be able to fight for compensation. In layman’s terms, if you become injured due to a defective product, you most likely can file a claim.

Who Can Be Held Liable?

While product manufacturers are usually targeted most often, they’re not the only ones you can sue. You have the legal right to sue:

  • Manufacturers
  • Advertisers
  • Distributors
  • Designers
  • Retailers
  • Multiple parties at once

Only one party has to have shown neglect for you to win your case. Proving someone guilty of ignoring fundamental safety concerns or falsely advertising their product can be challenging to do by yourself. Fortunately, you won’t have to.
