Defective Product Injury and Reasonable Means

Were you recently injured by a defective product? If so, you may be in position to bring a lawsuit against the manufacturer, retailer, distributor, and/or wholesaler. All of these parties have a legal responsibility to ensure that their products, when used as intended, are safe.

According to the law, manufacturers and sellers must use “reasonable means” to ensure the safety of their products. Reasonable means include:

  • Test the product
  • Ensure that none of the parts are defective
  • Include proper instructions
  • Provide a warning label if there is any danger of using the product

Here are the three ways a manufacturer or seller can be help responsible for a product that caused an injury:

  • Negligence
  • Misrepresentation
  • Breach of warranty

After receiving medical treatment, contact us to discuss your case. One of our experienced defective product injury attorneys can review your situation and help you decide which steps to take next.
