Product Liability: An Overview
Products liability refers to the liability of any or all parties along the chain of manufacture of any product for damage caused by that product. Products containing inherent defects that cause harm to a consumer of the product, or someone to whom the product was loaned, given, etc., are the subjects of products liability suits. While products are generally thought of as tangible personal property, products liability has stretched that definition to include intangibles (gas), naturals (pets), real estate (house), and writings (navigational charts).
Products liability claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty of fitness depending on the jurisdiction within which the claim is based.
Injuries can occur at any time and when you least expect them. Toys are supposedly designed with child safety in mind. Power tools are meant for home improvement not serious injury. Seat belts are advertised as the first defense again injury. It takes an experienced law firm to recognize the qualifications of a product liability case. In White Plains, the Hudson Valley and New York City, the lawyers you turn to should be Francis X. Young.
