Product Liability cases are some of the most publicized cases in the United States today.

If you or a loved one have been injured by a dangerous product, contact a product liability attorney from Humphrey & Rist to discuss your case.
What is a Product Liability Case?
The term “product liability” typically refers to any case that involves a defective product that has been placed in the stream of commerce. Defective products can include:
- Food products purchased from grocery stores or restaurants
- Baby cribs, strollers, car seats and toys
- Problems with automobiles including issues with tires, brakes, airbags, seatbelts, safety equipment and/or other parts of a vehicle
- Defective lawn mowers, tractors, ATVs or other equipment
- Food poisoning cases including salmonella, listeria, or norovirus
Some product liability cases can involve a manufacturing defect, meaning that there was an error in assembly that led to the product being defective. Other product liability cases involve a design defect, meaning that the design of the product was defective and created an unreasonably dangerous condition.
Our office also handles cases involving failure to warn. These types of product defect cases involve products that had no warning labels or poor warning labels and instructions. If the failure to warn proximately caused injuries and damages, then there is a possibility a failure to warn case that could be filed.
Damages in a Product Liability Case
The categories of damages that can be recovered in a product liability case typically depend on the type of injury that was suffered by a consumer. In most cases we attempt to recover the following:
- Past medical costs
- Future medical costs
- Damages for pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
