According to product liability, or malfunctioning product laws in Ohio, manufacturers, designers, suppliers, and retailers can be held responsible for any injuries or property damage resulting from a faulty product. If you have been injured by a malfunctioning product, you may be able to receive compensation by filing a personal injury claim.

What is Product Liability?

In a product liability case, it must be proven that the product in question had a significant defect or flaw that resulted in dangerous functionality. Furthermore, you must also be able to prove that your injury was the direct result of the product malfunctioning. Common product defects that may lead to significant injuries include the following:

Manufacturing Defects

When a product is being created, complications can arise. Perhaps the product was not wired correctly, or perhaps it has sharp corners or jagged edges.

Marketing Defects

False advertisement is common in the world of product advertising. In many cases, warranties make promises about a product’s safety that turn out to be false. Other times, a commercial will display a product in a misleading way.

Design Defects

Sometimes a product is doomed before it is even made. A flaw in a product’s design could lead to unintentional performance or unexpected actions.

Types of Product Liability

There are a number of explanations, or theories, that can be used to establish why a company or retailer is at fault for a product-related injury. The four most frequently recognized theories of product liability include:

Misrepresentation

When this theory is utilized in a court case, it is usually because of false advertising or misinformation that came with the product. When a person is given false information, they may use the product in a way that is unsafe.

Strict Liability

This theory calls upon the universal protection provided by the Consumer Protection Act. When a product defect causes death or injury, the manufacturer, the seller, or the retailer can be held accountable depending on the situation.

Negligence

Ohio law requires that all companies that sell or produce products do so in a safe manner. In cases where this argument is used, it must be proven that the defect could have been foreseen by the seller or producer.

Warranty

Most products come with a warranty that makes promises to the consumer. They might claim that a product is safe, appropriate for certain age groups, or will not break within a certain time frame. These promises are broken frequently.

Compensation in Product Liability Cases

If you have been hurt by a flawed product, you may wish to file a personal injury lawsuit to obtain funds for your financial losses. The legal processes involved in this type of action can be complicated. Once you have filed a legal notice with a civil court, you may be required to appear before a judge and jury. If you are not prepared to prove that you were harmed by a faulty product, it is likely that you will not be awarded the funds you need to move forward with your life.

This is why it is essential to seek the assistance of an experienced Columbus product liability attorney.
