Anyone who allows a defective or unsafe product to get into the hands of a consumer can be held liable if that product causes injury. Responsibility for a product defect can extend to everyone within a product’s distribution chain, including the manufacturer, manufacturer of component parts, wholesaler, and retail outlet. What’s more, there are different types of product liability claims depending on the nature of the defect.
All of this tends to make product liability lawsuit cases a complicated and delicate endeavor. You need a product liability lawyer who knows the unique intricacies of this area of the law, and who is familiar with every aspect of manufacturing and distribution.
If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, it is important to preserve the product and contact Smith Haughey as quickly as possible.
