Product Liability is the specialized area of law that deals with the liability of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product for injuries resulting from that product. Defective product cases can be quite complicated with several people and parties involved in the production, distribution and sale of the defective product.
Manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers may all be responsible for injuries that are caused as a result of a defective product. If products contain a manufacturing flaw, a design defect, or an inadequate warning they are considered to be defective.
In defective product cases it is absolutely essential that measures be taken immediately to preserve evidence so that qualified engineers and other experts can determine the nature and cause of the defect. Thus it is imperative that the purchaser of the product take the following measures immediately:
1) Seek medical attention
2) Save the receipts and instruction manuals and the product parts (if possible)
3) Take photos of the defective product and the injuries suffered
4) Contact an attorney
