Injured by a defective Product?

Product Liability Claims in Nevada

Every day, we use numerous products to make our lives easier, safer, and more convenient. We rely on these products to work properly and to do what they are intended and marketed to do. Unfortunately, defective and downright dangerous products make it onto the consumer market every single year—often with devastating consequences. In the hands of ordinary consumers, defective products can cause severe injuries and, in some tragic cases, fatalities.

What is Products Liability?

Product liability refers to the responsibility product designers, manufacturers, and distributors have to make reasonably safe products. In other words, any entity involved in the creation, production, or distribution of a product is legally liable for ensuring that the product is reasonably safe for ordinary use.

Product defects generally fall into three categories:

  • Design Defects: These occur when the actual design of the product is faulty, making the product inherently unsafe for typical use. In order for a product to have a defective design, it must be inherently and unreasonably dangerous.
  • Manufacturing Defects: When a mistake is made during manufacturing, such as contamination or failure to adhere certain parts, a batch of products can become defective. This is one of the most common types of product defects.
  • Marketing Defects: Also known as a labeling defect, a marketing defect occurs when a product is improperly marketed or lacks sufficient warnings labels or instructions. This can result in dire consequences for unsuspecting consumers.

What are the Different Types of Liability for Defective Products?

Product manufacturers and distributors can generally be held liable for defective products under several different legal theories, including the theory of negligence, strict negligence, and breach of warranty (expressed or implied), among others. Our Las Vegas product liability lawyers can help you understand this complex area of law as it pertains to your unique situation and work to build a solid case aimed at securing the maximum compensation you are entitled to receive.


The first ground for legal action involving a defective product is negligence. Under this argument, the injured party must show that the defendant’s negligence resulted in the product-related losses. Negligence may be proven by showing a breach of duty by the maker, who failed to ensure the reasonable safety of the product that caused the plaintiff’s injury.

Breach of Warranty

The second type of liability, which constitutes grounds for a defective product case, is a breach of warranty. A breach of warranty primarily implies that there was a violation of promises made by the manufacturer to the consumer, which were expressed through the labeling or sales transaction. The product, in essence, does not live up to the guarantees of the maker.

Strict Liability

Third, strict liability is also grounds for a defective product case. Strict liability implies that the manufacturer of the product is responsible for damage or injury caused by the product, regardless of precautions taken to ensure safety and accurate warning information. This standard is based on the belief that the maker of a product should bear the burden of injuries caused by their product.
