Countless citizens of Alabama suffer injuries or are killed each year due to defective consumer products. As consumers, we rely on the safety of the products we use, but unfortunately, the list of potentially deadly products seems to expand every day. Product liability cases cover a wide range of issues, from faulty car parts to contaminated food, and typically involve:
The defective manufacture of a product.
Defective design of the product.
Failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions about using the product correctly.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a defective product, you must understand your rights and consult a skilled attorney. At the Law Offices of Elliott Owen Lipinsky, we have extensive experience handling product liability cases. Our team, including attorney Elliott Lipinsky, is dedicated to helping our clients navigate the complex legal process.
Product liability cases can arise from a variety of defects, but the three most common categories include the following:
Design defects: If the designers of a product fail to consider the user's safety when drawing up the product's design.
Manufacturer defects: When a manufacturer makes mistakes or cuts corners during the production of a product, causing it not to work correctly once it is in use.
Failure to warn: When a manufacturer does not put a warning label on a product, it is misused, resulting in an injury.
If you have suffered injuries due to a defective product, you can sue the manufacturer and recover damages per Alabama law. However, product liability cases can be complicated and hard-fought, especially by manufacturers who seek to discourage future lawsuits. That's why working with an experienced attorney who can help you build a strong case and fight for the compensation you deserve is essential.

In Alabama, a product is deemed defective if it is evaluated as unreasonably dangerous for its various intended and foreseeable uses. Suppose the product is unreasonably dangerous, and the defendant fails to correct the defects or warn end-users. In that case, the defendant will likely be liable according to Alabama product defect principles.
