Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, retailers, distributors, and others who are in the chain of commerce that make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products caused. When manufacturers fail to provide a safe and secure product for consumers, and someone is injured, a product liability lawsuit is possible. So, it is important to prove that a manufacturer was negligent by failing to keep its product(s) free of hazards.
Most product liability claims are based on negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection claims. William J. Taylor has represented manufacturers and distributors of lawn mower blades, space heaters, and plaster products. His understanding of how the inner workings of the insurance companies that defend these claims is invaluable. Proving a liability claim requires understanding which different elements need to be proven to present a successful claim.
