Frequently Asked Questions About Product Liability Cases
What is a product liability case?
Sometimes, the product may have been designed to be as safe as possible, and manufactured according to its design, but the manufacturer or seller of the product failed to warn the consumer of inherent dangers in the product that might not be obvious to the average person. We call this a “failure to warn” case.”

I’ve saved the product. Now what do I do?
What is a “breach of warranty?”
What is an “implied warranty?”
