Mississippi Product Liability Attorneys
Helping Injured Individuals throughout North Mississippi
When you go to the store and purchase an item, you have reason to believe that the product is safe to use. As consumers, we are constantly putting a lot of trust in the manufacturers, wholesalers, and vendors who create goods and get them into our hands. It is understandable that mistakes can happen, but what happens when a product puts you in danger or seriously harms you?
If you have been injured by a dangerous item that you purchased, product liability holds the manufacturer or seller responsible for your injuries. To bring justice to your situation, you need a skilled Mississippi product liability attorney fighting for you. The field of product liability is nuanced and is governed by a set of particular laws, so it is important to retain a firm with extensive experience in this area of the law. Brad Morris Law Firm, PLLC has represented several North Mississippi residents who were injured by consumer goods and can put this experience to work for you.
Types of Product Defects
Anyone involved in the process of designing, making, and selling products to the general public is responsible for controlling the quality of the product and ensuring that it is safe to use.
The three types of defects that can be used to form a product liability claim are:
- Design defects: A flaw in the inherent design of a product can make it unsafe to use
- Manufacturing defects: If the manufacturer failed to properly follow the product design specifications, they may have caused a dangerous defect
- Informational defects: If the seller failed to properly label the product, instruct the consumer on its use, or inform the consumer of potential hazards, they can be held liable for a consumer’s injury
