Dothan Defective Product Attorneys

Product Liability Claims in Alabama

Nearly everything you do, from showering and getting dressed to receiving medical treatment, requires the use of certain products. You trust the products, parts, and devices you purchase to make life easier, but sometimes they can jeopardize your health and safety.

When manufacturers are not careful in the design, manufacturing, and marketing of a product, you can suffer serious consequences. The field of product liability law exists to hold these negligent manufacturers accountable. As Dothan defective product lawyers, Capps, Gil & Parker, LLC, helps clients like you take advantage of the legal system after serious injuries and even cases of wrongful death.

Manufacturing, Design, and Marketing Defects

Product defects can arise at the design or manufacturing stage. In these cases, something is wrong with the product and the consumer is harmed as a result. Consumers can also be misled by defective marketing. If they are harmed by risks they did not know existed, they may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Explore the types of product defects below:

  • Manufacturing defects are caused by an error in assembly and usually affect a small percentage of goods. An example of a manufacturing defect is a batch of chairs that are missing a screw and thus cannot support the consumer’s weight.
  • Design defects occur when the product is unreasonably dangerous from its inception. All of the manufactured products will typically be affected. An example of a design defect is a chair that is unsteady because it is designed with only 3 legs.
  • Marketing defects can arise when manufacturers make false claims, do not include instructions, or present their product as safe for an unapproved use. If a drugmaker advertises a drug for dementia when it is only FDA-approved to treat depression, for example, or fails to include dosage instructions, you may be looking at a marketing defect.
  • Failure to warn claims can arise when manufacturers fail to warn consumers about potential risks. If a drug fails to disclose serious side effects, for example, you may have a claim. You can also sue over inadequate warning labels.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by any of the defects above, our Dothan product liability attorneys can help.

Theories of Liability

To level the playing field between large manufacturers and injured consumers, many product liability cases are pursued under the theory of strict liability. This means consumers who file lawsuits (plaintiffs) will only have to prove that the product was defective and that they sustained an injury as a result. Unlike most personal injury lawsuits, strict liability cases do not require the plaintiff to prove negligence.

That being said, some product liability cases do operate off of traditional negligence, which means you will need to show how the manufacturer breached its duty of care toward you as a consumer and caused your injuries.

No matter what theory of liability you are up against, our aggressive attorneys will build you a strong case and guide you through the legal process.
