Product liability is the liability of a manufacturer for consequential damage resulting from the use of its products, both for personal injury – be it in the form of damage to health and body – as well as property damage outside the defectiveness of the product, the consumer or even a other persons as a result of the defectiveness of the product. Product liability is therefore the manufacturer's responsibility for personal and property risks due to the lack of safety and defectiveness of the product placed on the market by the manufacturer. Sometimes it is necessary to hire a product liablity lawyer Portland.
Background of product liability is that there is usually no direct contractual relationship between the manufacturer of a good and the end user (consumer). As a result, claims for damages caused to the consumer as a result of defectiveness are initially waived; there are also no claims based on a contract in favor of third parties or a contract with a protective effect in favor of third parties. The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Friedman are a product liability law firm in Portland, however, allows the consumer, under certain conditions, to use the manufacturer for the marketing of the defective product and the resulting damage.
