Does a claim for a defective product fall under the personal injury law?

Does a claim for a defective product fall under the personal injury law?

The term “defective product” refers to any product that causes some injury or damage to a person because of some problem with the product. Usually the liability falls upon the manufacturer of the product.

There are many examples of “defective products” and can include product liability from a vehicle being sold with inoperable brakes or a mislabeled product that causes injury which are somewhat obvious examples, to the not-so-obvious defective product issues such as exposure to the harmful side effects of second-hand smoke.

If you are unsure as to whether you have suffered injury or harm as a result of a defective product, you should consult a personal injury attorney that has handled this type of claim and is familiar with personal injury liability laws in your area.
