Who Is Liable in My Product Liability Claim?
In many products liability cases, the manufacturer or the seller is usually held liable for a dangerous or defective product that makes its way into the hands of the consumer. But other entities can also be held liable, depending on the circumstances of the claim and its cause.
If the injuries were caused by a marketing flaw, then the company who marketed the product can be held liable. If the product was altered during the shipping process, the shipping agent may be held liable. Consult a product liability attorney to find out the liable parties in your unique situation.
