Product Liability Cases

Have you been injured by a defective product? If so, then you may have a product liability case against one or more entities. Those entities might include a manufacturer, distributor, supplier, and/or retailer of that product.

What is a Defective Product?

There are many examples of defective products. Some of the more common examples include:

  • a defective vehicle airbag that fails to deploy in an accident when it should;
  • a defective tool, machine, or other product that breaks despite being used properly
  • or a product that fails to provide an adequate warning or instruction label.

Product liability cases in Indiana are governed by the Indiana Product Liability Act (IPLA). They can be brought under several different legal theories. Those theories include but are not limited to: strict liability and negligence. There are also strict time limitations in Indiana for product liability cases. This includes a statute of limitations and a statute of repose. For this reason, it is important to call Garrison Law Firm immediately if you believe you were injured by a defective product.

Product Liability Defenses

Of course, there are several defenses to a product liability case. These defenses include but are not limited to:

  • Having knowledge of a product defect or danger and using the product anyway
  • Misusing the product, and/or modifying or altering the product in any way.

Even if you have not been injured by a defective product, it is important to be aware of these defenses. Be sure to read a product’s instruction manual and warning label carefully before use.

If you seek treatment for injuries incurred as a result of a defective product, then you should call Garrison Law Firm. We will help you determine your rights and to find out what sources of recovery may be available to you.
