Who Can Be Held Accountable for a Defective Product?

If you are injured or harmed by a defective product, it can be a life-altering and traumatic experience. When purchasing a product, you should be assured that it will be reasonably safe to use; however, that is not always the case. According to research from the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission, defective products cause 29.4 million injuries and 21,400 fatalities each year. Our Starkville product liability lawyers can evaluate your case and help determine which parties could be responsible for your damages caused by an unsafe product.

Who Is Liable?

Product liability claims are complex in nature regarding holding the correct party accountable for damages. To recover damages from the injuries you suffered from a defective product, it is crucial to understand that multiple parties may be involved.

Manufacturer

The manufacturers could be held liable if the product was dangerous due to defective manufacturing. However, to prove a manufacturing defect caused your injuries, it must be shown that the product's design or inadequate manufacturing caused you harm. The product can also be defective if it breached an express warranty, and was designed in a dangerous manner.

Company

Companies are responsible for warning consumers of potential risks of their products. Under Mississippi Law, if a company fails to warn consumers about the potential dangers, they can be held liable for the defective products.
