Montana Defective Product Lawyers

Product liability is that area of personal injury law that makes the manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers of consumer products liable for injuries resulting from the use of their products by the public. Research from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission indicates that defective, dangerous, or unsafe products cause 29.4 million injuries and over 21,000 deaths every year. Within the U.S., an estimated $700 billion is spent annually on the injuries, deaths, and property damage caused by consumer product accidents and incidents.

Product Liability Cases

Virtually all products on the market are subject to product liability law. This includes more than just items found on store shelves. 

Defective products can include:

  • Food
  • Drugs
  • Appliances
  • Automobiles and their parts
  • Medical devices and implants
  • Toys
  • Cosmetics
  • Tools
  • Blood
  • Tobacco
  • Gases
  • Real estate
  • Writings
  • Maps
  • Commercial jets

When you suffer harm while using a consumer product as it was intended to be used, you may have legal recourse for your injuries and damages through a product liability claim. Under product liability law, a product may be defective in different ways.

These can include:

  • A defect in the way the product was designed. 
  • A defect in the way it was manufactured or assembled.
  • A defect in the way it was marketed, such as failing to warn consumers about risks or failing to provide proper instructions for use.

Product liability claims can be complicated as you must prove that, while using the product as intended, it had a defect (as listed above) that caused your injury. In such cases, you may be eligible for compensation to cover your medical expenses, lost income or wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. If you have been injured in such a way, we stand ready to help you with your potential defective product claim.
