Episode 5 - Product Liability Claims

Episode 5: Evansville-area attorney Todd Barsumian explains the type of product liability claims pursued by product liability attorneys in this episode of the Barsumian Injury Law Podcast.

The basic premise of product liability actions is that manufacturers should be held responsible for injuries caused as a result of unreasonably dangerous and defective products they put into the stream of commerce. Consumers assume that when a manufacturer brings a new product to the market, it is not going to be defective and cause injuries and harm to consumers who use the product. If a product does cause harm, product liability attorneys try to figure out how and why it happened. If the product is determined to be unreasonably dangerous, the manufacturer may be subject to a product liability claim and/or lawsuit.

Potential Causes of Product Liability
  • Defective Design
  • Manufacturing Defect
  • Failure to Warn

Product liability involves many different types of consumer products, such as cars or trucks, pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and other products. Asbestos and various types of component materials and cancer-causing agents in products may also cause a product to be deemed unreasonably dangerous and thus potentially the focus of a product liability claim. Some products, like the mined natural mineral fiber asbestos and products manufactured from it, have been linked to “designer diseases” such as mesothelioma.

Product liability claims can be difficult and expensive to prosecute, often involving complex questions requiring expert testimony from physicians, epidemiologists, engineers and other experts. Many product liability claims are litigated as part of multi-district litigation involving thousands of similar claims asserted against a particular manufacture throughout the country. A variety of product liability law firms are often at the forefront of each particular, multi-district product liability docket.

Barsumian Injury Law has handled product liability claims directly on behalf of consumers and as local counsel with other firms in national product liability litigation.

Client Reviews
He went beyond the scope to investigate certain details that ended up being crucial, that had been missed by all others who had worked on this case prior. It is not possible to give a high enough commendation to him. We could not have asked for more capable hands to be in. If a reason to need counsel presents itself in the future, we will have to look no further than his office. If you are reading this review, you have found your lawyer! Shelie
