Randall & Schumacher, P.A. is adept at handling product liability claims. Product liability law allows an injured person to bring a claim against a manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor or retailer of a product for injuries resulting from dangerous and defective products, including medical devices such as heart defibrillators and implantable pain pumps. Historically, under English “common law,” the sale of a product was viewed as a commercial transaction upon which only the parties to the commercial contract could sue, such as the buyer and seller. The law has since evolved to the point where today people injured from a product may bring a claim against not only the seller, but other related parties, such as the manufacturers and the distributors.
Product liability claims are generally based upon three legal theories: Negligence; Breach of Implied and Express Warranties; and Strict Liability. These theories have developed over time and have several common elements. However, the application of those elements varies depending on the facts of the case and the jurisdiction in which the lawsuit originates, making experience in litigating products liability claims necessary.
