An Overview of Product Liability Laws in Tennessee
Manufacturers, distributors, product sellers, and marketers have a legal responsibility to sell reasonably safe products to the people of Tennessee. A product that is defective or otherwise unreasonably dangerous should never make it onto the marketplace. Companies can be held legally liable for injuries caused by dangerous or defective products. In practice, product liability claims fit into one of three different categories: Design defects, manufacturing defects, or warning defects. To bring a successful product liability claim against a company, you must prove the following four things:
- The product was defective or unreasonably dangerous;
- The dangerous/defective product was the cause of your injuries;
- The product was used in the proper manner or in a reasonably foreseeable manner; and
- You suffered actual harm as a consequence of the defective product.
It is important to emphasize the limits of Tennessee’s product liability laws. A company is not automatically liable for product-related injuries. Some products are inherently dangerous. As an example, a sharp kitchen knife is a dangerous consumer product that must be used with care.
To hold a company liable for injuries caused by that type of product—or any other product—you must demonstrate its design was unreasonably dangerous, it was defectively manufactured, or it was sold without the proper warning labels.
As product liability claims are complex legal cases, it is imperative injured victims consult with a qualified attorney as early in the claims process as possible. Our lawyers will investigate your injuries to determine exactly what happened.
You Deserve Full Financial Compensation for Your Injuries
In legal parlance, the term ‘damages’ refers to compensation for losses stemming from an accident. Under Tennessee’s product liability laws, an injured victim can recover financial compensation for both economic and non economic losses.
Sadly, manufacturers and insurers do not make the claims process easy. Once liability is established, they will shift their strategy and focus on limiting the value of a settlement offer or jury verdict. At The Barnes Law Firm, our Knoxville, TN defective product lawyers know how to help clients maximize their financial recovery. You may be eligible to obtain money damages for:
- Property damage;
- Emergency medical treatment;
- Other medical bills and expenses;
- Rehabilitative care;
- Lost income;
- Diminished earning potential;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental anguish;
- Disability; and
- Wrongful death.
