Some of our readers in Oklahoma may have heard about an area of the law known as “products liability” law. Admittedly, that sounds like “legalese.” But, in short, this area of the law is the focus of legal claims that are based on injuries caused by dangerous and defective products. And, quite frankly, such injuries are incredibly common.
Common themes in products liability claims
A product doesn’t necessarily need to malfunction to cause an injury. Some products are inherently dangerous by the way they are designed. Others are dangerous because they do not come with appropriate warnings or instructions about the use of the product. And even more are probably dangerous because something went wrong in the manufacturing process for the product. Each products liability claim is different, but these common themes are present in many such claims.
The hard part of a products liability claim is pushing the case through the legal process and proving the case to the point of winning a trial, or making a defendant decide to settle the case. Evidence in these types of cases can be quite technical, involving design plans, manufacturing techniques and delving into the decision-making behind warnings and instructions that were included with the product.
