When a product malfunctions and causes an injury, a number of individuals can be held accountable. 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 a malfunctioning product has injured you, you may be able to receive compensation by filing a personal injury claim.

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:
When a product is being created, complications can arise. Perhaps the product was not wired correctly or has sharp corners or jagged edges.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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 seller or producer could have foreseen the defect.
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.
