Sellers or manufacturers establish an unwritten contract with customers who use their products, promising that their goods are safe for use or consumption. Individuals who are injured by a defective product may be entitled to compensation. The lawyers at Cardaro & Peek have the knowledge and expertise of Baltimore products liability laws to handle your case and earn you a just settlement.

Products Liability Cases

Unfortunately, defective consumer products cause thousands of injuries every year. Baltimore residents who have experienced injury as a result of a product defect may have a claim for damages against the distributor or seller. Before a lawsuit is filed, it’s important to understand the three basic types of product liability cases.

Design Defect Claims

One of the most common types of product liability claim occurs when there is an apparent defect in the design of a product. Design defect claims describe a product that is unreasonably dangerous to the consumer. Examples range in severity, from uneven legs on a table to top-heaviness on a vehicle.

Manufacturing Defects

A lawsuit based on manufacturing defect alleges that the design of the product is safe, but an error or negligence occurred during the manufacturing process that made the product hazardous. In these cases, the product becomes unreasonably dangerous as a result of the manufacturer, and they should be held liable.

Labeling Defects

If a product is dangerous in any way, the company or manufacturer has a responsibility to warn the consumer on a label or elsewhere on the packaging. If the manufacturer fails to do so, the consumer could be at risk. A common example of labeling defects includes prescription medication. If a patient experiences adverse side effects that were not disclosed by the pharmaceutical company, the company could be liable for negligence.
