Whether you’re reading this blog post on a phone, a laptop, or a desktop computer, there’s a good chance you’re using a manufactured product right now. And it’s likely that your product went through lots of testing to make sure it’s safe to use. But not all products meet the standards we expect, leading to unforeseen injuries and, sometimes, severe consequences for the consumer.

Product liability law exists to protect individuals in these situations, ensuring that manufacturers, distributors, and retailers are held accountable for the safety of what they bring to market. Understanding your rights and the steps to take after sustaining an injury due to a defective product is important if you’re going to make a product liability claim.

At Ponce Law, our commitment to advocating for the rights of those injured by defective products stands at the forefront of our practice. Read on to learn the basics of product liability cases, and what you should do if you think you have one.

What Is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the legal obligation of manufacturers, distributors, and sellers to ensure that the products they introduce into the marketplace are safe for consumer use. This area of law provides a means for individuals to seek compensation when a product causes injury, illness, or, in the worst cases, death.

At the core of product liability claims is the concept that companies must prioritize consumer safety across all stages of a product’s lifecycle—from initial design to final sale. When companies fail in this duty, they can be held legally responsible for the resulting damages.

Steps to Take Immediately After an Injury 

When you’ve sustained an injury due to a potentially defective product, the steps you take immediately afterward are pivotal not only for your health but also for any subsequent legal action you might pursue. Here’s what you should do:

How Do I File a Product Liability Claim?

After the initial steps following a product-based injury, you might be interested in filing a product liability claim. A product liability claim is a structured process that requires a clear understanding of legal procedures and evidence. Here’s a closer look at how to effectively file your claim:

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
