Defective Product Liability Claims In Keizer, Oregon
In Oregon, manufacturers, designers, distributors and retailers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for consumer use. If you suffered an injury due to a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation, and our knowledgeable attorneys can help.
Oregon Product Liability Laws
In Oregon, products must meet consumers’ ordinary expectations, and an unexpected defect or danger violates these expectations. When a defective product makes its way into the hands of a consumer, it becomes subject to a product liability claim. Defective product claims under Oregon law must fall into one of these categories:
- Design or manufacturing defect claims can include a flaw in the materials used, fabrication or manufacturing process, or the product’s design could be inherently dangerous even without any errors or flaws occurring during manufacturing.
- Failure to warn claims involve defective marketing of the product, which didn’t provide adequate or accurate warnings about the potential danger posed by the product.
- Failure to properly instruct on its use claims also fall under defective marketing and occur when adequate instructions on the safe and appropriate use of a product aren’t provided.
To bring a product liability claim you, as the plaintiff, have to prove that the product was defective or unreasonably dangerous. Our skilled personal injury attorneys are ready to fight for your right to compensation. Civil action may be brought against one or more parties, including the manufacturer, distributor, seller or lessor of the defective product.
