Bad products can harm, good attorneys can help

Poorly designed and defective products can cause serious injuries and death. These devices and products can include any number of consumer goods, from electronics and vehicles to children's toys and clothing. Fortunately, no matter what type of product liability case you're facing, there is an experienced attorney to help.

Bread company could lose dough over improper labeling

The Ohio Department of Agriculture recently discovered an inconsistency while inspecting the Thomas Star Bakery of Ohio LLC firm. Buns Bread, made using milk and eggs, failed to mention these ingredients on the packaging. Both of these ingredients are known allergens that have the potential to cause significant health problems to those who suffer adverse reactions from their consumption. This can cause issues for quite a few people.

Healthy meal replacement proves to be anything but

It goes without saying that we expect our grocery store food items to be safe. Any known harm is of an acceptable sort, like knowing buying a tub of ice cream that you intend to eat could add a little fluff to your midsection. But healthy shakes and meals, the ones touted as being nutritious and located in the health and fitness sections of most groceries, are not the obvious junk foods but are instead the products we hide our shameful treats under. However, 2016 has witnessed a 20-state outbreak of Salmonella poisoning linked to one of these very products.

When the system fails you, we won't

You put your trust in an overall idea of consumer protection. That what is on the shelf at the stores has been tested and is safe to eat; that what retailers advertise to benefit your life has been scrutinized for efficacy and safety. You don't take chances in your car, you stay off your phone, you don't drive after drinking and you exercise defensive practices. And somehow, your faith has been dashed upon the treacherous rocks of an ugly reality.

How long do you have to file a defective product claim in Ohio?

All states, including Ohio, have what are called "statutes of limitations." These statutes place limits of time on how long individuals, or groups, in the case of class-action suits, have to file liability claims. In Ohio, a statute of limitations is in place that limits the amount of time you have to file a claim involving a defective product.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and a product recall

All Ohio residents have heard of a product being recalled at one time or another. However, most probably do not know how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration decides whether to recall a product. If you would like to learn more about how an FDA product recall works, you should continue reading.

As the weather chills, product defects heat up

Each year, as the weather turns colder, people bring out their old space heaters or purchase new ones in order to keep the chill at bay. Simultaneously, over the years, we read and watch on the news as homes go up in flames and treasured possessions, or worse, are lost in fires resulting from defective space heaters. Did you know a manufacturer is also responsible for what is considered a defective warning on a space heater?

What is the product liability statute of repose?

Questions about how long you have to commence a lawsuit in Ohio based on a product liability cause of action usually center on the applicable statute of limitations, which in this state is two years from the date of injury or, if the harm was not readily discoverable at the time it occurred, two years from the date of such discovery or when a reasonable person would have discovered it.

Manufacturers, insurers may clash over autonomous car liability

Two areas of the law often impacted by automobile accidents are insurance coverage and products liability. Traditionally insurance is supposed to cover driver errors, while products liability covers manufacturer and design problems. But the future of the law concerning car accidents may turn that equation on its head.

Product liability: When bad design or manufacture leads to injury

Most of us have occasionally experienced "buyer's remorse," the feeling that you get when you purchase a product only to have it not turn out to be the way you thought it would. Sometimes things simply do not meet our expectations. But on other - fortunately less frequent - occasions, the way that a product is designed or manufactured can lead to results that are not just unforeseen but dangerous as well. This is where Ohio law governing products liability becomes involved.
