Companies involved in manufacturing, supplying, selling, and distributing product can be held liable for injuries and illnesses caused by their use. A consumer who has suffered illness, injury, or death as a result of a commercial product has the right to bring a product liability suit against the manufacturer, retailer, distributor, or supplier. Product liability cases frequently require thorough investigation as well as examination of the product by qualified experts to determine whether a product is defectively designed, manufactured or marketed.
There are several legal theories for establishing liability of those responsible for injuries caused by hazardous products.
