Oklahoma Product Liability

The products you buy and use and those products that are in the environment in which you frequent in your daily life, should be safe. Many times individuals are severely injured and disabled because a product manufacturer fails to warn an individual regarding the proper use of the product, as well as the hazards that may be associated with an accepted use of the product.

Suffering an injury or an economic loss because of a defective or unreasonably dangerous product may entitle an individual to receive compensation. In the United States, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are negligence, strict products 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. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements to be proven to present a successful claim. It is important to note that a product liability case in the state of Oklahoma must be brought within two years after the plaintiff suffers the injury.

The difficulties of an injured customer to prove what a manufacturer did or did not do during the design or manufacture of product has lead to the development of newer product liability claims such as strict liability.

Product Liability and Strict Liability

Rather than focus on the behavior of the manufacturer, strict liability claims focus on the product itself. The basic component of a strict liability claim is proof that the product is defective or unreasonably dangerous. Similar to negligence claims, strict liability claims may attack a product's design, manufacture, or warnings. In the U.S., states have employed numerous ways to determine a product's defectiveness. Most of the tests used to determine defectiveness include these types of concepts:

Product Liability and Breach of Warranty

Warranties are statements by a manufacturer or seller concerning a product during a commercial transaction. Unlike negligence claims, which focus on the manufacturer's conduct, or strict liability claims, which focus on the condition of the product, warranty claims focus on how these issues relate to a commercial transaction.
