Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. A product can be defined as anything that has been used by the injured victim that has caused said injury.
Known defective products are not the only types of products that can cause injury as many products are thought to be safe and are not. Product liability law helps prevent future injuries to other consumers and is a very broad area of the law. If you have been injured by a product, contact the Law Offices of Sean Hagan to learn your rights and see if you have a claim for compensation.
