Every year consumers get injured by poorly designed, or constructed defective products. And in many of those cases, the products had been or were later recalled by the manufacturers. In virtually every case, the injuries that occurred were avoidable. Properly constructing, or providing adequate safety warning instructions could have saved people from harm. Of course simply recalling the commodity in a timely fashion may be enough to prevent more of them.
Recalling Bad Products Limits Liability.
So once timely notified, car makers should at least try and resolve the dangers. Corporations or companies issue recalls not only to protect consumers. Because once apparent they have manufactured an unsafe product, recalling limits their liability. So it has the effect of encouraging a recall, but makes it harder to find a lawyer if injured by a recalled product.

If a manufacturer is under the gun, or trying to meet the bottom line, it is not uncommon to rush. And the end result is a less than safe product in the marketplace. In the past, some producers knew or should have known what was delivered to end users was hazardous. Although it was troubling, manufacturers escaped liability for many terrible injuries.
Sometimes the risks versus benefits were not worth it. So rather than spend a penny for an item to make it safe, an exploding car might get sent to market. Examples, such as the exploding Ford Pinto come to mind. In that case, for just a few cents per unit, many exploding gas tanks would not have burned. Hence, many killed innocent users and vehicle occupants would have survived.
So courts and statutes cracked down on vehicle makers and others. They said that manufacturers need to make things reasonably safe. So the idea was that product makers not place profits over people. So when poor products severely harm innocent individuals they can hire lawyer. The lawyer will use the tools at their disposal to get the consumer money. These tools include the code, statutes and judge made law. But the tools will also include the training, knowledge and skill of the lawyer.

Types of Product Liability.
Product liability negligence claims arise when a person sells a bad item. This is usually someone supplying a good or item. So it could be a retail outlet, wholesaler, manufacturer or distributor. But it could be some other party. It includes any part of the supply chain. Someone who introduces a product the stream of commerce is potentially liable. So any of those examples discussed above could attach liability. Hence liability attaches with inaccurate labels, defective design or manufacturing flaws.
Product liability negligence cases are multi-tiered and typically complex cases legally speaking. There is also a greatly enhanced burden of proof standard. So the jurisprudence of these matters is at a different level. A competent advocate needs to be formulaic when looking at evidence. For example, what was the selection process used to come up with components? How did they come up with the overall design?
Did the Items Cause You Harm?
Getting harmed is not enough to win. The plaintiff must establish that the supplier’s goods caused damage. They must be due to a negligent manufacturing process. So liability attaches if a defective overall design. Same goes if the product lacked proper use instructions and warnings against inconspicuous dangers. [2. California Jury Instructions for Products Liability Cases]. There are also breaches of implied warranty of merchant-ability and fitness for a particular use. And still others for breach of contract, and breach of actual warranty. And typically these get added into a “mixed bag claim.”
Under this theory of recovery, a product is so unreasonably dangerous, or put to market in such a terrible condition, that it is “inherently” defective, the vendor or fabricator is liable without need by suing party to prove fault. This type of case allows the plaintiff to save an arm and a leg in litigation expenses, since they are arguing damages instead of liability, and then damages. This is because no matter what defendants did to try and make the product safe, it is so dangerous, it can never be safe.
Common Examples of Strictly Liable Products Suits.
A common example, we have heard about in the news would be:
- Explosives and explosive factories
- Fireworks combusting
- Toxic chemicals, etc.
Less commonly discussed examples of strict liability involve products for traction in wet areas. Examples are cruise ship decks and health spas. They also make no slip products for residential pool decks. If there is insufficient coefficient of friction, consumers slip and fall. Often times they could suffer serious bodily harm.
Common injuries include head, neck and back injuries. So the structure, spa, etc, may be perfectly fine. But the adjacent flooring get manufactured in such as way as to make it unfit. So now it is improper for its marketed use. Thus, unreasonably dangerous.
It could also include a snapping mini cooler designed for use aboard a limousine. Suppose it snaps on a hand and amputates fingers. The heavy spring snaps back when grabbing refreshments. So now people are on the way to Urgent Care. If you think you have a case like this, it is best to contact Ehline Law. So now you understand the nuances and exception to proceeding on these claims.
How Do I Prove the Item Was Unreasonably Defective or Dangerous?
The burden here is that of an objective, ordinary person. You must prove to a jury that the product was far too hazardous for what the user knew or could have known at the time of use. Then you must show it is more likely than not, unreasonably defective or dangerous. This test gets applied on a case by case basis. So an attorney needs to be leading this type of case. Most of all, you need to avoid your claims being summarily adjudicated by the court before a jury can get it.
