In Honolulu, product liability represents the area of law that addresses
the legal responsibility of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer
of a product for injuries resulting from dangerous and defective products.
Nearly every product manufactured, grown, assembled, driven, or flown
is subject to the law. Defective products are defined as those that are
unreasonably dangerous for their intended use. Our Honolulu personal injury
lawyers have successfully represented an array of cases involving defective
products and will take the time necessary to fully understand the intricate
nature of your case.

Establishing Fault in Product Liability Cases
In order for residents in Honolulu to have a viable product liability case,
the plaintiffs' lawyers must bring an action on one or all three specific counts:
- Breach of implied and express warranties
- Strict liability
In many ways, these three counts overlap, and all represent a historic
evolution from the initial days of "buyer beware." In a product
liability claim, plaintiffs and lawyers must show that a distributor or
manufacturer failed to exercise reasonable care in the process of manufacturing
or selling a product, resulting in an injury to the plaintiff. Negligence
is a very broad term and can include the failure to anticipate probable
uses of their product, failure to issue proper warnings, failure to inspect
adequately, and more.
Breach of warranty and strict liability are slightly more ambiguous and
yet in many ways, overlap one another. The thrust of the counts lie in
there being an inherent flaw in the product itself, making it unreasonably
dangerous for its intended use.
