Product Liability

According to the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), an organization that tracks trends on product-related injuries and death, product liability lawsuits result in the second highest median damage awards. This means that a product liability case can result in financial directives that could potentially destroy a company’s ability to function. Businesses can and have been dissolved in the wake of a product liability suit.

Product liability cases are extremely complicated and require a thorough understanding of the intricacies and vast case precedent involved in litigation. One of the factors that make this area of law so difficult is the fact that even businesses that do not intentionally manufacture or design defective products could be faced with extraordinarily damaging financial liability.
