PRODUCTS LIABILITY DEFENSE
As many notable high profile cases have shown, even companies with solid reputations can face significant negative publicity and financial losses as a result of products liability litigation. Product design and manufacturing is a lengthy process often involving significant investments of time, manpower, and capital. When a defective product claim is brought against a designer, manufacturer, retailer, distributor, or supplier, a lot is at stake.
Product manufacturers know that even the most vigilant, safety-conscious companies must be prepared to respond to serious products liability claims, and that the potential exposure for defendants can be extraordinarily high. Many industries require adherence to specific standards and regulations to ensure products are designed and developed to function safely and effectively. There are also requirements related to manufacturing to prevent product defects, and specifications for including warnings and precautions in instructions to prevent injury during use of that product. Examples of defective product claims include design, manufacturing, or marketing defects.
