How Can I Bring on a Product Defect Claim?
A product defect is defined as any characteristic of a product which interferes with the purpose it was designed and manufactured for. Injuries from product defects can be sustained due to errors in the marketing, design or manufacturing of a product.
There are no federal product liability laws. Product defect claims are based on state laws. The state of Nevada uses the theory of strict liability regarding product defect cases. This means that a defendant can still be held liable in the absence of negligence or intent to harm in a product defect case. In Nevada in order to claim strict liability for a product defect these elements must be present:
- The product contained a defect making it unreasonably dangerous
- The defect existed when the product left the manufacturer
- The product was used for its intended purpose
- The defect caused injury or damage to the plaintiff
In addition to bringing a claim on the grounds of strict product liability, a Nevada resident could also bring a product defect claim under breach of warranty, negligence and intentional misrepresentation. A product defect lawyer, Las Vegas, NV, can help determine which legal theories apply to your product defect case and who the claims should be brought against.
