Maryland Product Defect Lawyer

What kind of product defect claims can you make in MarylandTwo of the more common product defect claims that injured people often make with the help of a Maryland product defect lawyer are those of negligence and strict liability. There are other reasons that people file claims to hold the responsible party or parties liable, that a product defect lawyer may be able to help you file.

What is negligence? There is a chain of different parties that have a responsibility to give consumers a reasonable amount of protection to prevent them from being hurt when they use a product that one or more of these parties has a role in making available to consumers. When one or more of these parties fail to fulfill their legal duty to keep consumers safe, it may be considered negligence.

What is strict liability? Strict liability does not depend on actual negligence or intent to harm but rather on the impropriety, often a malfunction, of a product itself.

Who is going to be liable for my injury?

There is no blanket answer to this question because each product defect injury victim’s situation is unique. Something that can be tricky about proving defective product injury claims is that there is often more than one party who is responsible for making a defective or dangerous product available to the public. Some of these parties may include but are not limited to:

  • Designers
  • Engineers
  • Manufacturers
  • Assemblers
  • Safety control testers
  • Distributors
  • Sellers

When there is more than one party that is potentially liable for a victim’s injuries the plaintiff, needs to prove that each party was in some part responsible. This can be difficult to do without the help of a Maryland product defect lawyer who is experienced at successfully defending injury victims in Maryland courts.
