How do I know what kind of product liability case I have?

When we invest our money in a product, we expect it to do what it’s supposed to. It’s incredibly frustrating when a product malfunctions unexpectedly, and it’s even worse when that malfunction results in a serious injury for us or one of our loved ones. Identifying whether you have a viable product liability lawsuit – and which kind – is the first step toward obtaining justice for your undeserved injury.

Design defect

Sometimes a product just had a poor – or even negligent – design behind it. When a product didn’t malfunction, but worked exactly as intended, and your injury results from its reasonable use, then a design defect suit may be in order.

Manufacturing defect

These kinds of cases arise when a product wasn’t assembled properly, or the materials that the manufacturer used aren’t strong enough to stand up to normal use of the product. If a product falls apart unreasonably quickly, resulting in your injury, a manufacturing defect could be to blame.

Warning defect

If a manufacturer knows of a danger that could arise from a foreseeable use of the product, then they have a legal duty to place a clear warning for the consumer in a place where the consumer will definitely see it. If a manufacturer fails to do this, and you are injured because you had no warning of the danger, you can seek compensation for the failure to include an adequate warning on the product.

Justice demands that, if you suffer an injury from an unsafe product, you have the opportunity to seek compensation for the injuries that you, or your family member, suffered. No one should have to deal with the aftermath of a negligently designed or assembled product without the ability to make things right – through legal action, if necessary.

"They took a case that others would have stayed clear of.."
I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
