Frequently Asked Questions on Defective Products

In Alabama, there are three primary theories of liability for defective product claims:

  • Negligence: A plaintiff can bring a product liability claim based on negligence. This means showing that the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer failed to take standard safety precautions, resulting in a defective product.

  • Breach of Warranty: This theory argues that an injury occurred because the product did not work as it should have. Breach of warranty cases are often filed against product manufacturers.

  • Strict Liability: Alabama follows the Alabama Extended Manufacturers Liability Doctrine (AEMLD), which is based on strict liability principles.

How do you establish liability in a defective product case?

A defective product claim can arise from various errors related to:

  • Manufacturing defects: Issues that occur during the product’s production.

  • Design flaws: Problems inherent in the product’s design.

  • Inadequate warnings or instructions: Insufficient information provided to consumers.

  • Marketing or labeling errors: Misleading representations about the product.

What types of errors can lead to a defective product claim?

  • Seek medical attention promptly.

  • Preserve evidence, including the product itself and any related documents.

  • Consult an experienced product liability attorney to evaluate your case.

What should I do if I’ve been injured by a defective product?

The answer depends on the specific circumstances and claims. Alabama’s AEMLD governs product liability actions, and understanding the roles of manufacturers, distributors, and retailers is crucial. 

Can I sue the retailer if I was injured by a defective product?

Zantac is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines. It also treats conditions in which the stomach produces too much acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other conditions in which acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus, causing heartburn. Zantac was voluntarily recalled from the market on Sept. 13, 2019. If you have taken Zantac and were diagnosed with certain types of cancer, including liver, bladder, stomach, colon, kidney, or pancreatic cancer, call the Taylor Law Firm for a free case review.
