Protecting Your Reputation In The Face Of Defective Products Claims

The process of designing, manufacturing and selling a product is complex and takes significant time, money and effort. When a consumer claims that your product is defective and has caused them harm, it can damage your reputation and hurt your financial outlook.

Whether your company is large or small, you always have a chance of facing a defective products liability lawsuit.

We know how to employ a variety of defenses to build a strong case on your behalf.

Understanding Defective Products Claims

In defective products claims, consumers must show that they used your product as intended, that your product caused their injury and that the product was defective. If a consumer wins their case, you may have to pay them damages and pull your product from the market.

There are numerous product liability cases that a consumer can bring against you, including:

  • Warranty defect
  • Design defect
  • Manufacturing defect
  • Strict liability
  • Negligence
