Product Liability & Recall Attorneys Serving Birmingham, AL
When we think about personal injuries, we tend to think about things like automobile accidents or neglected property – something that gives us a specific person to hold accountable for their actions.

Product liability is an area of the law that deals with dangerous or defective products that ultimately cause thousands of serious injuries every year in the United States. Product liability law is the set of legal rules and guidelines that determine who to hold accountable for said products, and how they can compensate victims for their injuries and damages.

Product Liability Lawyers
You might be curious as to what exactly “product liability” means, and how it affects you. In short, product liability refers to the party liable for the product in question. When something ends up dangerous or defective and causes injury to someone, the liable party is responsible to make things right. When a product fails to meet the consumer’s “ordinary expectations”, in other words, by exhibiting an unexpected danger or defect it is important to identify who is to be held responsible for the issue.
Who is responsible for defective or dangerous products?
First of all, it should be noted than no federal law regarding product liability is in place, leaving litigation and product liability claims largely based upon state laws. With that said, the liability for a product’s danger or defective nature might rest with any of the following:
- The product’s manufacturer
- The component’s manufacturer
- The individual that installs or assembles the product
- The retail store selling the product
- The wholesaler
When a product causes injury or is recalled due to defects or unexpected danger, the fault might lie with the above individuals.
