Each year thousands of Americans are injured due to dangerous consumer products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the distributor or manufacturer of these products took additional steps to ensure the safety of its consumers. Inadequate drug labeling, poor manufacturing, and product recalls can affect virtually any consumer, often with devastating effects.

Overview

The product liability lawyers at Bailey Glasser have a successful track record of prosecuting product liability lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs who have been injured or killed because of defective products. We know the law and we will investigate your accident to determine if a defective product was the cause of your injuries.

Product liability cases can be based on theories of strict liability, negligence, breach of warranty, or misrepresentation. In some cases, plaintiffs may choose to plead all of these theories and then investigate to see which are the most appropriate to pursue at trial.

To recover damages under a theory of strict liability, for example, the plaintiff will need to prove with the assistance of a products liability lawyer that the product's condition was unreasonably dangerous, the dangerous condition existed when the product left the manufacturer’s control, and the plaintiff's injuries were caused by that condition. There are three main types of dangerous conditions or defects that can potentially give rise to liability. These include manufacturing defects, design defects, and marketing defects, also known as failures to warn.

If you successfully prove your case, you can potentially recover a wide range of compensatory damages, including medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, the costs of future treatment, loss of income, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
