Product Liability

Product liability is the area of law that governs the responsibility of a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product for injuries that result from the use of that product. The number of potentially deadly products we encounter in our everyday lives is staggering. If you sustained an injury while using a defective or malfunctioning product, you may have a claim for product liability.

Product Liability actions in Alabama are governed by the Alabama Extended Manufacturer’s Liability Doctrine (AEMLD), which was enacted to provide recourse for consumers injured by the use of defective products.  A product is considered defective if it is unreasonably dangerous for its intended use.  Various theories of liability are available to an injured person in a product liability case, including but not limited to theories of defective design, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn or warning label defects.

Product liability law is extremely complex, often involving multiple defendants, the use of expert witnesses, and extensive preparation of documents and exhibits. If you have been injured while using a defective or malfunctioning product, a skilled personal injury attorney can help ensure that you get full compensation for your injuries.
