Product Liability and Mass Tort Litigation
Mass tort cases are assembled when many people are harmed in a similar way due to a company’s alleged negligence. One of the most common types of mass tort cases are product liability torts. These cases can be filed for many different reasons, often due to a defective product such as a faulty medical device.
If you or a loved one was harmed due to a defective product or medical device, you may be eligible to file a product liability lawsuit.
Types of Product Liability Claims
Generally, there are three types of product liability lawsuits an individual can file against a company. The three types of claims include:
- Strict liability
- Breach of warranty
Regardless of what type of claim is filed, a claimant will need to prove that at least one of the three defects below existed.
- Manufacturer Defects. A manufacturer defect is caused by an error in the production or assembly process. This type of defect may happen due to an issue on the assembly line at the factory.
- Design Defects. A design defect occurs when the people or entities involved in the blueprint or specifications of the product are responsible for an error that renders the whole product line unreasonably dangerous.
- Failure to Warn (Marketing Defects). A marketing defect occurs when a manufacturer fails to provide adequate instruction on how to use a product or fails to warn its consumers about an inherent risk of the product. The manufacturer, however, does not need to warn consumers of the obvious risks of a product. For example, a manufacturer does not need to warn consumers that a knife is sharp.
