Brown & Kelly

Products Liability
The attorneys at Brown & Kelly regularly represent product and component manufacturers, product assemblers and installers, wholesalers, and retailers in the defense of claims arising out of allegation that a defective or dangerous product caused injury. The legal standards which apply to a liability claims for allegedly placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer are different from ordinary injury law. 

Typically, product liability claims are based on the individual state’s laws, and brought under the theories of negligence, strict liability, res ipsa loquitur (the injury speaks for itself), breach of warranty, or failure to warn.  Under any theory of liability, the plaintiff will argue the product was defective and dangerous due to a design, manufacturing and/or marketing defect. 

Our attorneys are well experienced in the defense of products liability claims and work with our clients to prepare a defense to these complex claims.
