What is personal injury?

A personal injury occurs when a person has suffered an injury to the body, either physical or psychological. In these cases, a person’s injury has been caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of another. Some common personal injury claims arise out of motorcycle accidents, truck crashes, wrongful death claims, car wrecks, construction accidents, industrial accidents, work accidents, back and neck injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. There are many more wrongful actions that can lead to a personal injury claim.

What is Product Liability?

When individuals are harmed, injured or killed by an unsafe or defective product, they may have a cause of action against the manufacturer, supplier, distributor or retailer of that product. This area of law is known as Product Liability. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost more than $700 billion each year.

In the United States, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection claims. The majority of product liability laws are determined at the State level and vary widely from State to State. A product liability claim is usually based on one or more of the following:

Design defect
Manufacturing defect
Failure to warn.
