Consumers Are Not Responsible for Product Safety
A product must be manufactured, labeled, and marketed in accordance with state and federal regulations. If you suffer an injury due to negligence at any of these stages, you may be entitled to compensation.

- Post collision fires
- Defective medical devices
- Door latch failures

Three Categories of Dangerous Products Claims
- Breach of Warranty
Breach of warranty is based on contract law and doesn’t require proof of negligence or fault on the part of the manufacturer. Hales & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation can help you receive compensation if you are injured or your property is damaged while using a product which didn’t satisfy the terms of its warranty.
The responsible party may be held liable due to negligence if you are injured because a manufacturer or seller didn’t exercise reasonable care in the design, manufacture, inspection or testing of a product.
- Strict Liability
Under the theory of strict liability, the injured party only needs to demonstrate that the product is defective due to design defects, manufacturing defects, or failure to warn of defects that existed prior to the manufacturer’s release of the product.
