Product Liability and Defective Product Claims

schematicPicIn Ohio, a manufacturer of a defective product may be held liable for the death, physical injury, serious emotional distress, or damage to property of another that results when the product is used for its intended purpose or a reasonably foreseeable purpose.

A product may be defective in the way it is manufactured, assembled, or constructed, in its design, due to inadequate warnings or inadequate instructions, or because it did not conform to a representation made by the manufacturer.

A person injured by a defective product may be able to recover damages for medical costs, future medical costs, costs of care (disability), pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and economic loss.

If you have been harmed due to a defective product and would like a free consultation to discuss your rights, please feel free to contact us.
