What You Need to Know About Product Liability Cases
You could have the basis of a product liability case if you or someone you love was injured by a consumer product that was used in the way it was intended. One of the first things we’ll do is identify the at-fault party.
The at-fault party could include:
- The product’s manufacturer
- The manufacturer of its parts
- The product’s wholesaler or retailer
- The product’s marketing team
We can also define the way in which the product was defective. This may require consulting with engineers on your case, who may assert the defect lied with:
A Defective Design
Products with design flaws can cause dangerous malfunctions. Examples would include a carbon monoxide detector that cannot detect dangerous CO gas levels or flame-retardant materials that do not block fire damage.
The Manufacturing Process
Products can be flawed because of problems in the manufacturing process. Examples would include a vehicle with faulty brakes or an aerosol can with faulty pressure controls.
The Lack of a Warning Label
Consumers should know everything about a product’s risks before using it. Manufacturers are required to include warning labels about certain hazards and how they can be avoided.
Examples include a medication that does not list all possible side effects or a toy without the appropriate age range on it.

Product Liability Damages We Can Recover for You
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls millions of items a year. Even if a product’s on the shelf, it could still end up hurting the consumer. When this happens, the law allows injured people to recover:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Current future lost wages
- Ongoing pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional trauma
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Transportation expenses
- Childcare costs
Your family can also recover wrongful death-related damages if a loved one was fatally injured by a defective product. These damages include funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial and household support, and loss of companionship and consortium.
Our team at Bressman Law will carefully assess your financial recovery options and work hard to ensure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
You Have a Limited Time to Pursue Compensation Under Ohio Law
Recovering damages in your product liability case is a time-sensitive matter. During your free case review, one of our representatives will explain the importance of adhering to the state’s civil statute of limitations.
Here’s what you need to know:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is generally two years, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally two years, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
Failing to meet the filing deadline could result in your case being dismissed–meaning its merits would never be heard in court. Missing the deadline could also leave you with few legal options for recovering damages from the at-fault party or their insurer. We can help you avoid this adverse outcome.
In addition to complying with the filing deadline, getting our team involved sooner rather than later also means we have time to investigate, find possible witnesses, and consult relevant experts. Finding certain pieces of evidence is a time-sensitive matter, too.
