Product liability lawsuits are intended to protect consumers from dangerous merchandise
Over the past 30 years, Beasley Allen has built the reputation of being one of the best product liability firms in the country. We have numerous lawyers and support staff devoted to working on product liability lawsuits.
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.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents costs more than $700 billion each year.

Product liability claims
In the United States, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty and various consumer protection claims. The majority of product liability laws are determined at the state level and vary widely from state to state. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements to be proven to present a successful claim.
A products liability claim is usually based on one or more of the following:
- Design defect
- Manufacturing defect
- Failure to warn
In general, products liability claims are based not on negligence, but rather on strict liability. Rather than focus on the behavior of the manufacturer (as in negligence), strict liability claims focus on the product itself.
Do you have a product liability claim?
There may be a product liability claim if the occupant was killed or seriously injured by a defective product.
If your loved one has suffered a serious injury or death as a result of a product liability injury, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
