Minnesota Product Liability Lawyer

Product liability is an area of the law that holds the manufacturers of products, retailers, and wholesalers responsible for the injuries that a person sustains from an unsafe product. Many of these lawsuits turn into class action lawsuits because the defect involves an entire product line or a specific lot.

Many of the products that become the subject of such lawsuits include appliances, drugs, food, toys, cars, medical devices, tobacco products, medical implants, gases, incorrect maps, incorrect written instructions, real estate, mechanical devices, and much more. It is an obligation for manufacturers to design products that are safe for consumers to use. If something is wrong with the product, it is their responsibility to alert customers of any potential issues and to even recall the products so that the defects can be rectified. When manufacturers fail to do so or retailers or wholesalers fail to pull items off of shelves that they know are defective, a Minnesota product liability lawyer can bring a lawsuit against all parties involved.

Types Of Product Liability Claims

There are different types of product liability claims seen in the Minnesota courts. They include:

  • Car accidents/SUV rollover accidents
  • Tire blowouts
  • Defective medical devices
  • Car seat malfunctions
  • Drug recalls
  • Faulty medical equipment
  • Mislabeled food supplements
  • Unsafe construction equipment
  • Toxic substances
  • Faulty parts
  • Toys with unexpected choking hazards
  • And much more

If it is faulty and has caused an injury, then a lawsuit can be brought by a Minnesota product liability lawyer. Most product liability claims have to do with manufacturing defects and design defects. An example is a faulty seat-belt. The basic design of the belt may be fine, but the material it is constructed out of may be defective. If the seat-belt rips in an accident and causes an injury, then an individual may have a product liability claim.

Damages

There are different types of damages that can be sought in a product liability claim. They include pain, suffering, and loss of quality of life; disability; wrongful death, scarring and disfigurement; past, present, and future medical bills; emotional distress; past, present, and future lost wages; and other damages that may be deemed appropriate in your unique case. There are so many injuries that can occur and that will help determine the damages you can seek.
