Product Liability and Defective Products

At Ernest Holzberg & Associates, we represent victims of defective product designs, defective manufacturing, inadequate labeling and product warnings, misuse by a third party, recalls and other foreseeable factors.

From teddy bears to yachts, from pharmaceuticals to appliances, many products have the potential to cause harm and suffering due to negligence, defect, or breach of warranty. Hazardous and inadequately labeled products can be found almost everywhere and people who are injured because of such products deserve to be compensated for their injuries.

Product liability claims can be filed for the following reasons:

  • Design: The way the product was designed has made it dangerous. Injuries may result from the product itself, or its packaging.
  • Instructions: The instructions included with the product fail to warn the user of possible dangers or the consequences of improper use.
  • Manufacturing: Some materials used in the product have made it dangerous. Examples of defective manufacturing include faulty wiring, poor construction, jagged edges, etc.

Under product liability law, a number of factors in the distribution chain can be held liable for a dangerous or defective product, including the manufacturer, a manufacturer of component parts, the wholesaler and the retail store that sold the product.

Each state has a different definition of what constitutes product liability and there are strict statutes of limitations for filing a product liability lawsuit. If you've been injured or have become sick because of a malfunctioning product of any kind, contact Ernest Holzberg & Associates. Our product liability attorneys can help you determine if you are owed compensation. We'll review your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.
