Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer: What Kind of Claims Fall Under Product Liability?, Kalispell, Montana

Product liability also falls under this area of law, but not all injury attorneys have extensive experience in it. If you were hurt because of a defective product and you want to pursue compensation, you can rely on a lawyer from Glacier Law Firm in Kalispell, MT. Below, their seasoned legal team explains the ins and outs of product liability.

Types of Claims

There are three main kinds of product liability claims. Injuries and any subsequent claims can arise as a result of design defects, manufacturing defects, or marketing defects. Design defects are present in a product even before it is manufactured, whereas manufacturing defects develop at some point during the production or assembly process. Finally, marketing defects refer to flaws in the way the product is marketed. Marketing defects can also refer to incorrect assembly instructions or insufficient safety warnings.

Potential Defendants

For example, the product designer or engineer may be responsible for design defects, whereas the manufacturer or assembly team is typically liable for any manufacturing defects.
