Product Liability FAQs

  • I was injured while using a hair dryer. Who is liable for my injuries?

    In nearly every instance, the manufacturer is liable for injuries that result from defective products. That being said, every case is unique. The specific circumstances of your situation may mean that another party or parties are partially or wholly responsible for your injuries. One example is if the product, in this case a hair dryer, was ever repaired by an outside third party. In such instances, the third party repairer may be responsible for the damages you have suffered. In other cases, the retailer or distributor of the product may be responsible. If you believe that you were injured by a defective or dangerous product, our Portsmouth product liability lawyers can help you determine who is responsible for your injuries and work to devise a plan of legal action.

  • How do manufacturers try to avoid liability in defective product cases?

    Most often, manufacturers will try to claim that the victim misused their product. However, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to properly label the product with instructions and warnings regarding improper use. If the product did not have these warnings, or you were using the product for its intended use and were still injured to a defect in the product design, manufacture, or distribution of the product, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

  • A law firm informed me that I might be eligible to join a class action lawsuit for a defective product. Should I join the suit?

    A class action lawsuit is a mass suit initiated by a group of people who were all harmed by the same defective product. If you were injured by the product in question, joining the class action suit may jeopardize some of your rights. For this reason, it’s wise to speak with an experienced Portsmouth product liability lawyer who can help you weigh your options and determine the best course of action. Our firm is here to provide you with the compassionate and objective legal counsel you need.
