Types of Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims can arise from many circumstances in which a consumer suffers harm from a defective or dangerous product. Some common types of product liability claims include:

  • Design defects – These claims involve inherently hazardous products due to their design.
  • Manufacturing defects – In these cases, a product may have been designed safely, but a mistake or error during the manufacturing process made it unsafe for consumers.
  • Failure to warn – Manufacturers have a duty to warn consumers of the dangers associated with using their product. They must also instruct consumers on how to use the product safely. Failure to do so can result in a product liability claim when an injury occurs.
  • Improper testing – Before releasing a product to the public, manufacturers are responsible for conducting thorough testing to ensure its safety. They may be liable if they fail to test a product adequately and it causes harm.
  • Retailer negligence – Retailers can be liable for injuries if they knew or should have known about a product’s defect and sold it to consumers anyway.

Anyone in the chain of distribution whose carelessness caused harm can be held liable for a defective product in Minnesota. The more complex the supply chain, the more potential sources of liability. Examples of possible at-fault parties include manufacturers, distributors, and retailers.

You can recover compensation for economic and noneconomic losses that result from the defective product, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and more. You may also be eligible for punitive damages if the defendant’s actions were particularly reckless or malicious.

Product liability cases are often difficult to handle because the process of producing and distributing products to consumers is often very complex. Important evidence may include:

  • Expert testimony on product safety
  • Consumer testimonials and complaints
  • Warning labels and instructions
  • Company’s safety and testing records
  • Government and industry regulations
  • Medical records and injury reports
  • Photographs and physical evidence of the product
  • Sales and distribution records
  • Previous lawsuits and settlements involving the product

The Minnesota personal injury statute of limitations normally gives accident victims six years to file their claim for compensation from the at-fault party. However, the deadline governing product liability claims is shortened to four years if it is based on “strict liability.”

To preserve evidence, it is essential that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Further, failure to file before the deadline passes will result in your case being dismissed in court.

Yes, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim if your loved one was killed due to a defective product. The Minnesota wrongful death statute of limitations only gives you three years to file your claim. Therefore, do not wait to take legal action.
