A company’s responsibility to you
Companies are obligated to design, produce, distribute and sell products that are not defective or harmful. Corporations and individuals can be held liable for your injuries under several different types of products liability theories:
- Negligence — A person or company who had a legal obligation did not use reasonable care and their actions or failure to act caused you injury.
- Breach of warranty — A company’s breach of express or implied warranties, as governed by the Uniform Commercial Code, resulted in your injury.
- Misrepresentation — You sustained injuries because you relied on false advertising or marketing claims about a product’s safety.
- Strict liability — This applies to products that are inherently dangerous or harmful.
Injury from unsafe products
The law holds several parties responsible for consumer safety, including:
An unsafe product claim can arise from problems that occur at any stage of design, manufacture, distribution or sale of the product. Our Fairfax personal injury law firm determines which parties are liable for your injuries through extensive investigation and research. We pursue multiple parties when appropriate.
