Nebraska product liability laws are designed to protect consumers from dangerous products, while holding the responsible party accountable for releasing an item that they knew or should have known posed a risk to the public. Persons who are injured due to an unsafe product or defective product may be entitled to recover compensation through a product liability lawsuit. In Nebraska, when a defective product causes injury, the manufacturer, designer, retailer, or distributor may be held accountable. Because defective product lawsuits typically involve complex legal issues, such as strict liability and breach of warranty, it’s important to speak with a product liability attorney who can help move your claim forward and ensure your rights are protected. Types of product liability claims may include: defective product design, defective product manufacturing, and failure/negligence to warn of product defect.
Design defects exist prior to the product being manufactured. The product may serve its purpose well, but it can be an unreasonably dangerous product to use due to a design defect. On the other hand, a manufacturing defect occurring during the construction or production phase only causes a few of many identical items to be flawed. Defects in marketing deal with improper instructions and failure to warn consumers of latent dangers in the product.
