Products that we use regularly can leave us seriously injured.
Household goods, machinery, medical devices, and prescription drugs can be dangerous or defective products that put consumers at risk for catastrophic injury or even death. Unfortunately, many product manufacturers and distributors put profit over safety. Mase Mebane Seitz has the resources and experience to stand up to the corporations that jeopardize everyone’s safety by selling dangerous and defective products.
- Products could be defective or dangerous as a result of:
- Manufacturing defects
- Design defects
- Inadequate or no warnings
Manufacturers and other businesses in the chain of distribution can be held strictly liable for injuries caused by their defective or dangerous products.
This means manufacturers or sellers of a defective or dangerous product can be automatically liable for any injuries caused by their product, even if they were not negligent. Generally, the law requires manufacturers and those in the chain of distribution to impliedly warrant their products for “merchantability” or “fitness for a particular purpose.” If the product itself is dangerous or defective, the companies that made or sold the product can be liable for any injuries their products cause.
