PRODUCT LIABILITY

Businesses, which are engaged in manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution or retailing of consumer or industrial usage products, may find themselves on the hook for injuries suffered by product users, who claim their injury resulted from a product defect, false advertising, improper labeling, improper assembly, or even their improper use of the products.

 

ADLI counsels and advises businesses of all sizes on product liability laws, which place responsibility for a defective product that causes injury on all businesses in the chain of distribution, including the wholesaler, retailer, maker of component parts, and even those who install or assemble the product manufacturer.

 

The vape industry is a fairly recent addition to the long list of product liability lawsuit targets.  Product liability suits in this area can focus on the products and/or components, including Electronic Cigarettes, E Liquids, Electronic Hookas, Vape Juices, Battery and other components, etc.

 

ADLI recognizes that product liability claims can be brought under various legal theories, including breach of warranty, strict liability, and negligence.  However, regardless of the legal theory, your business may face in a potential product liability claim, ADLI is here to help with pre-litigation counseling to identify and address potential issues, which may give rise to such claims and to help resolve them before they become a liability.

 

ADLI’s client-focused product liability legal services include customized strategic counseling tailored to the exposure, budget and risk tolerance your business may face in a potential product liability claim brought under any applicable legal theory, including design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects resulting from deficient safety warnings, assembly instructions, false advertising, or improper labeling.
